Parts Question

Hey, I am somewhat of a "newbie" when it comes to the rv'ing world. I recently bought a 1993 Fleetwood Prowler 29 foot bunkhouse model. I picked it up for $2,200 which is a screaming deal if you ask me. There are a few small things on it that need to be replaced. IE a vent cover, and light cover. My question is when looking for parts for this are they model specific, or do I just measure them and the parts are generic for all models? Any help is appreciated. Thanks.

Find an RV supply store near you and go in and check their inventory--take the old part with you if possible. Most of the interior items are the same or similar from just a few suppliers.
If you can't take the old one in, just find what seems to be near what you need, make sure you can return it, then get it and see if it fits.
Any good partsman can find what you need--you can even shop online if you like www.rvwholesalers.com is one place I look for things.

First thing I'd do is check for water leaks and then re-caulk everything. We just bought an '85 Wilderness that looked pristine, but I knew it had serious water damage in 3 corners and the bathroom floor was rotten. I kinda like fixing up old vehicles so it worked out. I scraped 3 layers of old caulking off and then re-caulked it all with Proflex. Every TT has leaked, is leaking and will leak, even new ones.

Thanks for the link for the parts and the idea. I will look into it and let you know the outcome. The vent cover, and light cover I need are both on the exterior. As far as the leak thing goes. My trailer doesnt have any leaks at the moment.......knock on wood. Luckily the vent cover is just cracked but it still does not leak. I want to get the trailer looking like new again IE replacing all the broken/damaged parts. Lets be real the trailer is 19 years old. Its going to need some touch up here and there.
