Replacement chassis/drivetrain parts for older Chevy P30 motorhomes

Where is a good source to get replacement parts for older motorhomes on the P30 chassis? I've looked at several items on Oriely's website like belts, hoses and such and it has the P30 listed but most say "will fit except motorhomes". I wanted to get some spare parts stocked up to carry with me but need a good source to buy them. Anybody got any tips?

Thanks

I don't know

I'm subscribing to this thread, cause I feel your pain and would like to know also.

I can't find an coolant overflow bottle that's the correct size. I have a generic one, but it's a little too small and so overflows on occasion.

Rockauto.com I've used them for many years. You may find that there may be too many choices lol. But prices are reasonable, I bought 4 brake hoses (because I wasn't sure which would fit) for less than what one cost locally. If you do a Google search there are 5% discount codes always available.

That's where I've been getting them for my '93 454 Flair. I'm not certain if it was NAPA when I got them there or not. It changed to Carquest during that time, so Carquest will probably have then also. I haven't had a problem getting parts so far.

P-Series are originally descended from Chevy pickup truck chassis, and step vans. Great sources are:
https://www.millsupply.com/ and Walkin Van | Learn all about the history, uses, and how to maintain your walkin van.

For general automotive parts, most auto supply stores have the parts, but you need to find a counter person who will take the time to do a little research.

P-30 Bell Crank 1995

I'm having heck finding the bell crank and other parts for the steering at any local parts houses, found a rebuild kit for the bell crank for 400 wow I hope all the parts are not like this. I found some new ones on e-bay but doesn't say if they will work on motor homes for 230. I've got a 1995 Georgie Boy 454 Swinger. Thanks for any info. are help on finding my parts. Thanks Ronnie

The Bell crank and arms are a design problem with the P30 chassis. Replacement for them are difficult to find. Your best option is to use Super Steer products. Doing a search on IRV2 will bring you lots of info on the subject. The bell crank arms run $230 +/_ the bell crank runs $340 +/_
