Callen camper help needed


Back door locking mechanism completely gone after last trip. Mine has the upper and lower rods. They both fell out.

I'm trying to find replacement parts or a new solution. Not much luck on parts. Jim Callen's craigslist post is gone, so I can't ask him.

Anyone with info on where I might find these parts, I'd really appreciate the help. Thanks.

I don't know for sure, I would try Grangers or McMaster Carr. Many US manf. use over the counter parts from these guys.

Try socal truck accessories in santee. You might also try some of the RV and trailer repair places in el cajon. If they cant find the parts,one of them shold be a able to macgyver something new.

That's how I got home. I'm heading down one last time to stay and need a bullet proof fix.

The only weak point in a Callen is the back door locking mechanisms. I'm on a mission.
