Western RV Suppliers

Now that small things are starting to break, some with my help, it would be nice if somewhere was a list of the companies that supplied parts to Western RV.

For example, one of the lugnut covers on my right front wheel got damaged and I searched everywhere (conceptually) for a match. I couldn't find an exact match, but found one that looked the same but was 1/8" longer.

One of my gas(?) cabinet flap stays, that holds the cabinet door open over the couch, broke. I found some close replacements, but nothing exact.

I'm sure other things will come up.

I understand that a lot of stuff was salvaged before the property was turned over. Is anyone aware of any supplier lists that might be around somewhere?

I can tell you that Uni-Grip supplied some of the seals to Western RV.

My 2006 owner's manual has a list of major OEM suppliers but I do not know of a list of suppliers of the small stuff.

The ACA website has a listing of small to major parts that Aubrey's RV in Union Gap bought when WRV went out of business. http://alpinecoachassociation.com/info/Aubreys.pdf

Perfect... great source for parts! They had my matching lug nut cover for $4.59... got two in case another boulder jumps out at me. Thanks!
