    Interior door handle mystery...

    So a few weeks ago, the interior door pull on my Fleetwood broke, being the cheesy plastic that it is. I planned to buy a used one, but the only one I found on eBay was way too expensive, and as I looked at it, I realized that despite it being clearly labelled in the auction and in some of the pictures as "driver's side", it is in fact a passenger side. You can tell by the side that the tabs are sticking out on.



    So I keep searching eBay and come across a COMPLETELY DIFFERENT seller parting out a Fleetwood. I was about to ask for the driver's door handle when I noticed the picture...



    The universe is trying to drive me insane at this point. I'm certain of it. Nobody else has a door handle like this, do they?
