Hi, all,

My fiance has a 29' 1989 Holiday Rambler Alumalite that we plan to fix up and sell in the next couple of months. We plan to downgrade to a truck camper to slide on our Dodge Ram 2500 pick up...something a little smaller and easier for us to maneuver.

Paul's a logger and lived in the trailer at various job sites, so it's taken a beating. Nothing terrible, but it definitely needs some sprucing up. We need to replace the tub, window screens, door lock, heater, etc. Any ideas where to go to find replacement parts for a trailer this old? Is it wise to just buy things meant for a newer RV? I've been cruising the Internet looking for RV and trailer parts, but I'm not finding much so far.

Thanks!

Hi amynpaul welcome to IRV2
Glad to have you aboard, if you go down to Vintage RV's some people redo older TT&MH'S and really do some great restore work they may have the connections as to where you can find replacement parts. You can also post in TT forums for answers. Good luck with your rebuild and enjoy the forums. "007"

amynpaul, welcome to iRV2.com. We are glad to have you join us here and look forward to reading of your adventures and experiences. A search for salvalge yards may also be of help in restoring the Alumalite. Good luck with your project and if we can be helpful with any questions just ask.
