    IMG_4966.JPG Can anybody tell me where I can find this hinge? It is the seat back hinge in the dinette of a 2000 Forest River Rockwood Premier. about 1 3/4 inches long...I might not need the original part as a replacement...convince me that I can go to Lowe's Depot and use any hinge that will fit...

    thanks in advance,

    Yes, go get something better than a plastic hinge.

    I wouldn't even consider replacing that with the original style. Take it up to your local hardware store and find a metal one.

    Get the proper length piano hinge and screws at your local hardware store or big box. Much sturdier.

    Is that a plastic hinge?? I doubt that's factory. I can't conceive how anyone would think that's a good idea. Get a good metal hinge with some tapered screw heads so they sit flush with the hinge plate and don't risk ripping your cushions.

    That is a factory hinge. I just replaced two of the same style or type on my 2005 palimino pony. I use metal hinges from Lowe's.

    I agree with all other responses .. any hinge will do. It doesn't even need to be the exact same size. Obviously metal from any store. I've never seen a plastic hinge in my life.
