Overhead Storage Door Hinges

Just purchased a 2018 3010 Sunseeker. The overhead storage doors (above sofa and dinette) are not the kind that can hold the door open like we had in our previously owned Forester. Can these hinges be changed out and if so, where can I get them?

Our 2011 model 3100 Sunseeker does not have spring-loaded hinges to hold the upper cabinet doors open, but it did come with spring lifts. Most of them failed in a few months so I replaced all of them with better lifts, as shown in the attached photo. I don't have information on them anymore, but they weren't expensive and they are widely available.

These aren't hinges, but I bought them from Amazon when I created a cabinet above the refrigerator. They match the existing hardware and still work fine.Click image for larger version
