ANSWER Greetings Bruce thanks for submitting your question on our Ask An RV Question Page.
I am going to open this question up to our visitors. Hopefully one of them can steer you to a source for these parts. I am afraid that when you are looking for manufacturer specific parts for an RV that is over 20 years old, you are going to run into problems.
In the mean time, I would suggest that you visit PopUpPortal.com and join their forums. This is an RVing site that has a lot of members that own pop up campers. You may find that one of the members there has information on a source for the parts you are looking for.
If they are unable to help you I would suggest contacting auto salvage yards in your area on the off chance that they may have a similar camper among their inventory.
I would also suggest you check with some machine shops in your area to see if they can modify some existing springs and make them workable for your needs or fabricate new ones. I afraid this option may be expensive
