I am new to this so not sure how all of this works. My family has a 2002 Keystone Travel Trailer that stays in storage at the beach. We love it! We need some parts that are hard to find - any suggestions on where to look for old parts?

Thanks.

I don't have an answer to your question but I did want to welcome you to iRV2. I have a suggestion that you Google Keystone Travel Trailer. I did that and Google returned lots of info. Also you may want to visit our Travel Trailer Discussion Forum and perhaps you could get some ideas there.

Good Luck;

Don

Almost all brands of RV trailers use standard parts. Things such as water heaters, air conditioners, water pumps, faucets, toilets, microwave ovens, refrigerators, axles, tires, wheels, awnings, cooktops, ovens, stabilizer jacks, etc., regardless of brand of trailer, use the same parts, with maybe a couple of choices of brands to choose from. So if your Suburban-brand oven needs replacement, you replace it with a new Suburban oven of the same size. You can buy almost any RV appliance from Camping World if you don't want to argue price with your Keystone RV dealer.
RV Supplies, RV Accessories & RV Parts for Motorhomes, Travel Trailers - Camping World

About the only thing unique about your Keystone is the doors to access the basement and other storage areas may be a unique size. So if you tear off or damage a door, you may need to order that door from a Keystone dealer. But you can remove the latch on that door and put it on the new door without having to buy a new latch. But that latch is also a standard item, so any RV store should be able to sell you a replacement latch.

I have a 2000 Keystone Sprinter 25RKS fifth wheel RV trailer that I bought new. It's been coast to coast and border to border several times over the years, but I've pretty much retired it now, and my daughter is living in it as a full-timer. I replaced one of the Aljo axles with a new Aljo axle. I had to know it was an Aljo and not a Dexter axle, and I had to know the exact width of the axle, but there was nothing unique to the axle just because it was on a Keystone trailer. I replaced the water pump with a new one from my RV store. Any 12-volt water pump will work. I upgraded the tires from ST205/75R15C to ST225/75R15D. The bigger tires required new wider trailer wheels, so I ordered those from Southwest Wheel.

(Most RV manufacturers don't put tires with enough weight capacity on their new trailers. As a result, you can have trailer tire problems such as blowouts and tread separations with the stock-size tires. So the first thing I do with a new RV trailer is upgrade the tire size with tires that have at least 25% weight capacity "safety margin" over the GAWR of the trailer axles.)

So far I haven't had to go looking in the bone yards to get any parts for my 14-year-old 5er, and it has well over 100,000 miles on it by now.

If you still have the Owner's Manual that came with the trailer, you'll note that the Keystone part of the manual is very skinny. But there are also included the Owner's Manuals for all the various standard appliances and parts such as axles and stabilizer jacks and TV antennas.
