HELP -Find vinyl wallboard

New to IRV2. Plan on fulltiming next December when husband retires.

Just bought a 2004 Mobile Suites 36TK3. Had it inspected...Inspector missed water damage. Tore out wall, insulation etc. Problem. Where can I find the vinyl wallboard?? Would like to try to match what is there to make my life easier, but I don't want to pay large shipping.
I'm in the DFW area. Anyone know where I can possible get 2 sheets?

Manufacturers change wallboard patterns and colors when they change interior decor, so it is doubtful you will find any locally, especially for an RV over 10 years old. Your best bet would be to call the factory. They may be able to direct you to a supplier.

All-Rite sells to both wholesale and retail customers, but the they have only two centers, one in Atlanta and one in California. I think you will have a very hard time finding a match locally and they can not match everything.

As you suggested though shipping is a killer. The last two sheets I ordered to rebuilt the back wall of a Sandpiper was $338 due to crating and big truck shipping.

I think that I would be looking at Lowes or Homedepot for something that comes close for something that you can live with.

Most manufacturers change panels with updating of new models. It is rare that paneling, unless popular outside the RV market, is continued beyond a couple of years. If it is still available, the cost to ship a couple of sheets is prohibitive. Shipping costs dont usually drop to something acceptable till you order something like 50 sheets.

It is likely that you will do as others and replace with something reasonably close. I would suggest doing a full wall rather than a portion. At least you could give the appearance of a feature wall.

Check with United RV on 121 in Fort Worth--they have probably the biggest parts supply in the Metroplex. Bet they can figure it out--or not?
Tough deal.
Might check with some RV salvage yards--Colaw in Carthage, MO, has lots of older units there.

SDoran,
Also note that I have an '05 36TK3 and will be glad to help you if I can, on any operational issues you may run across.

Joe,
What kind of mileage do you get pulling your trailer?

Lots of variables--first, I weigh in at 27,400lbs total; my 450 has 4:30 gears. So, hard to compare with a Chevy. But usually 9-9.5 on level, can drop to 8, have seen 10.2 on occasion. You should do a little better, but the frontal area on both our trailers is the same, and that is where a lot of drag comes from.
Joe

Pulling my 2004 36RE3 with a single axle 2007 Duramax the average fuel mileage is in the 10/11.8 range and that is with a programmer. Never have pulled without the programmer but when not pulling the mileage is similar to what it was without the programmer.

We got 9mpg driving it home from IL to TX. Now we installed a bullydog and without the trailer it was getting 14-15 in the economy mode. We pulled the trailer 23 miles from Camping World to home and got around 13. Still not sure what we're going to get because the truck needs a new thermostat and the mpg should get better after it is installed. Will let you know after the thermostat is installed how it does.
