1997 Fleetwood Southwind Dashboard

Hi - We're new RV'ers having bought a '97 Fleetwood Southwind 35' w/tag-axle. Wanted to say 'hey' to everyone - and also had a question on whether anyone can help with locating a replacement dashboard (the plastic housing) and the other pieces from that year. Ours is discolored from some bleach dripping on it in areas - wasn't shown in the dealer's photo's - the coach is pretty nice - super low-miles and pretty clean - just a few issues - would like to have the dash not look so bad...don't want to paint it...but would welcome ideas on how to dye it or a tip on replacements - maybe someone is parting one out. I can't locate any information on the web about finding one that looks like this...and I did find RV salvage yards. Thanks very much.

I recommend you buy a dash mat instead of trying to replace or stain the current dash. You can choose your color and it will also help to protect the dash from further discoloration or future cracking.

If you want to change your instrument bezels you can choose any laminate at the big box stores and replace the current one. Use it as a pattern for the laminate.

Welcome to the forum, safe travels!
