Lippert 24" RAdius Triple Manual Stairs

Anyone know what to replace the rivets with when they break? There has to be a kit out there for these, as I know I'm not the only one that has had them break on them. The dealer is about as much information as a rock, apparently there is a recall kit for these, but they are not sure of the part number or dimensions, and the internet has not been any help at all. Help! Asking the experts out there that have had this happen to them. Thank you!

How about replacing with a new rivet? Or a bolt and nylock nut?

Here's what I purchased from Menard's: I don't have a rivet gun, so the next best solution was a 3/8-24 fine thread screw, 3/8-24 hex jam nut fine thread, and flat washers. I also was able to completely salvage a spacer that was with the original design, and this worked perfectly. I did have to drill out the one hole with a 3/8 drill bit as it was not big enough to fit it, but everything turned out perfect. $1.77 in parts and my time to go and get the parts and install them. Thanks for the help local dealer; being very sarcastice all they said was there was a recall at one time and a bolt kit was available, but of course they have no specifications on what those actual measurements of the bolt kit are. It's very confusing why this industry does not provide better documentation of what is on your actual camper. Anyway, thank you for your idea, I appreciate it.
