Where to buy a hurricane hinge in Western USA?

Postby KendaldaCosta » Thu Jan 04, 2018 5:50 pm

I have some family members driving from Canada through the western USA and ending up near the California/Mexico border and I'm wondering where I can get them to pick me up a Hurricane hinge so I don't have to pay to have it shipped to Canada. They're staying in the US for a month so I may be able to have some stuff shipped to them to bring it back as well if I can take advantage of free US shipping.

Also, if any other Canadians are reading, what parts did you have the most trouble getting while trying to build in Canada? What else should I have them pick up for me?

I may have to go the Amazon Route. I would rather have them be able to pick it up instead of having to wait on shipping and potentially miss it.

According to his website, he is retired but it mentioned Oregon Trailer http://www.oregontrailer.net/ so maybe I'll reach out to them.

www.tcteardrops.com sells hurricane hinges with a built-in rain gutter. Their phone number(s) and email address are available at the link. Call or email to order one. They will sell custom lengths and ship the hinge to you. A hurricane hinge about 2" longer than the width of your teardrop works best.

ebay :thumbsup: Their prices look VERY COMPETITIVE!

https://www.facebook.com/TCTeardropsLLC ... 989882868/ has a video showing how the rain gutter works

You may want to call ahead of time to see if they are in stock. Take care
