new world of rving
I have rv'ed a few years now and have tried to find thing for my rv as economically as possible. So while you can go to an rv specific store and get any thing you need to repair or replace--- If you spend a little time researching you can for example find
1.15 watt florescent replacement bulbs at office supply places, home depot, lows
2.many of the incandescent lamps at auto supply areas in box stores -usually cheaper than a rv dealership accessory department. But don't rule them out some of them are pretty good.
3.Regular uposltry shops can redo your couch and you can select the fabric you like, or again camping world (an rv membership store) has some of the replacement furniture and for a fee will install it. You're limited to their colors and patterns. One time I had a bench seat almost a couch made for me at a auto upostry shop, that installed a lot of bucket seats in vans.
I have bought over the years many things originally marketed for home use and installed then my self. (Need to decide if it can take increased dampness or what ever else unusual about a motor home be fore installing.) If you are full timing some motor homes we'rent designed for full timing, and the stuff wears out in several years instead of lasting and looking good for a long time. I think though today newer mh have pretty good and durable fabrics etc but certain units are intended to be entry level units, and simply won't last and offer the durability and comfort of higher price point units. That is why I have bought what was an expensive mh on the used market. To be sure I'm kind of handy with tools and have owned rental homes in the past. So finding things at other than rv specific store (therefore usually for more money) I source many items where you might not expect to find a rv part.
Hope I touched on what you were asking.
