I was able to source perfect fit replacements from
KampCo steel products in Elkhart Indiana. They are made from .50
Aluminum and part number 5034 is the 12" radius
Price was totally fair at $36 plus shipping. I have not done the repair yet but they are a perfect overlay to the original. They also make 6"
Radius as well
Hope this helps other members

I had a question about the corners you bought their original corners measure 10 inches radius and 12 inches from the point to top The point being at the bottom of the trailer how do the new ones measure out are they 12 inches across side to side are they just like the originals because I was wondering maybe the 5033 the 8 inch might be the one needed please let me know how yours fit thank you

Kevin I ordered the corners that you suggested as per part number these corners do not fit anything in a barth trailer the 12 inch radius is way too big reason I'm replying other members do not buy that part number I have to send them back with a copy of my original $45 shipping down the drain

Sorry Sorry about losing your shipping costs. Please for the benefit of our site let us know when you get the proper replacement. Did you ask about other radius sizes availability?

I was a sheet metal fabricator for about 40 years. Lenny (who was a machinist)and I were visiting about making the die to form the corners. We were looking at the sample that sloop bought. I asked him how many hours he figured it would take to make the die and his answer was about 40 hours. Then you need almost a 4x4 sheet of aluminum, stamp it in a couple hundred ton press, saw out your pcs and there ready. I can't see any other way of forming them other than the die set that was used.

I wonder if a guy with an English Wheel and a whole lot of skill could modify the ones you bought or the old ones if they are not torn?? Best bet is get the parts that fit I guess...English Wheel is real old school but some of the hot rod folks have revived the skill set.

I straighten two of them out with an English wheel like the previous statement the only way they can be made is to be stamped kempco stamps them out in a half circle and then quarters them
