Get the part numbers you need and then shop.

Be careful with Amazon... I've seen several cases where parts sold as OEM had generics in the correct box.... Onan generator filters for example were NOT Onan but the box was.

So for that reason I buy from Freightliner and Cummins dealers. Not the cheapest route but the most reliable.

I usually do not just buy anything without searching for the best price/delivery.
Once I have the part number I'll search Ebay to give me a baseline. I'll then go to Froogle.com, which is google shopping and do a search. It usually provides a multiple options that I sort by the lowest price.

Lastly I will check Amazon and do a general internet search.
From here I pick the best option.

By doing the above I've probably saved +20% without getting out of my chair. I have a complete folder of repair parts/lists for my rig along with maintenance and general information.

If I need something right now I will buy from local venders but this is last option. I just built a new house and bought a lot of the none lumber and PVC plumbing supplies off the internet. If Lowes or 84 lumber had a better price I'd buy from there, otherwise it was internet.

It really depends on what type of parts you need.
Chassis parts can be purchased from many truck shops or online sources.
If you have a Spartan Chassis. Rvchassisparts.com is their online window.
Many items in your rv can be purchased from just about any Rv shop or online sources.
And then there will be some parts only available through Newmar or a Newmar dealer.

It's a hodge-podge, so no single site or provider. Newmar only built the body and the cabinetry. The chassis will be Spartan or Freightliner; the appliance from Dometic, Thetford, Atwood, etc. Newmar probably has some of the other parts, at least those still used in new production, but chances are they will refer you to the component manufacturer as well.


A Google search will usually turn up multiple sources for a given part, using either the part description or a part #.

Great place to get Fleetguard filters for your coach. You are going to have around 12 different ones to exchange over time

I've found that my local Freightliner truck shop has everything I need for the chassis and usually at the same price as on line. I get the correct OEM parts by just giving them my Vin.

Buying on line brings up a great point, beware of small vendors that sell old stock

Local dealers are often competitive

If not found it yet look at Website: newpar.newmarcorp.com

Get your vin# registered with your contact info at factory.

Also suggest call their very helpful parts customer service folks. Not always find what need on line so I call them and gotten assist as needed learning work around to web search or they look up my vin and advise info. Not needed extensive research but they’ve always advised what is what on parts etc.

Good luck

Also enter vin# @ this website: nhtsa.com.

I’ve not been happy with factory or dealer or service shops advising me on issues but found recall and service bulletins here.
