I'm looking for a new online RV parts/accessories supplier of new parts. I've been a loyal customer of one that sold out, one that wouldn't honor a request for a return (after spending thousands of dollars with them), and eBay, with the hassle of dealing with many different sellers and transactions to get what I need.

Who do you use?

EDIT**
P.S. I prefer west coast suppliers for shorter delivery times.

I always shop around at several places, depending on what I want. I google the compoent name or brand and see who has it what whatsort of deal they are offering - price, shipping, etc.

One of the firstplaces I look for accessories is IRV2's own www.rvupgrades.com. Good prices and excellent service.

And I always check Camping World too, though I probably only buy 10-20% of my stuff there.

Mark's RV is a good source for many kinds of parts, running gear, and such.

As you have probably figured out by now, I am not a "loyal" customer. I have seldom found that my loyalty was rewarded in any wa - I'm hust a faceless customer to all of them.

I would mostly agree with Gary,except for the "loyalty" aspect....

While there are no "visible" rewards, I do support rvupgrades as much as possible since they're a major sponsor of this forum.
As time goes by, they're adding more and more items to their inventory.

I myself have ordered things from other sources, even Camping World, but I try not to do that too often....

I have used www.pplmotorhomes.com a couple of times with good results on price and quick delivery. I've ordered on-line and called the 800 number to correct an error in one order. They were very helpful and prevented a mis-order shipment before it left their warehouse. I am impressed.

I use RVUpgrades.com our forum and principal website sponsor. They are one of the key sponsors that assures that we keep the doors open on this site 24/7. Additionally it's one of the reasons why iRV2 remains free from subscription costs and fees. If the sponsorship capital changes then who knows what may happen down the road.

If you like what you do and see here and realize value from it, your support of our sponsors is essential and certainly most appreciated.

Please click on the huge banner at the top of this page. Thank you.

I purchased my Dirt Devil from RVUpgrades because they had the lowest price I could find, but their lack of selection and higher prices on most other items don't make sense.

I'll host these forums on my servers if needed.

There's no doubt the go-rv.com affiliate catalog has the widest selection of parts, however you have to pay sales tax based on the affiliate's location, and shipping.
