Welcome jerguy to irv2.
From the looks of this thread your not alone in finding the parts.
I had a 88 John Deer and I want to a trucking outfit who came up with parts on my 8 year old chassis. JD dropped making RV chassis after I bought the motor home.
The truckers found the parts or match up some replacement parts and were reasonable.

We have a 1987 Fleetwood Bounder on a John Deere chassis with Ford 460.
Haven't needed any running gear/chassis parts as yet but have started to at least look in advance for when the need arises.

As far as I've been lead to believe and found out that John Deere parts can still be got through Freightliner . As yet haven't done any detective work in finding out
phone numbers or any product numbers.

Hi! Great idea don,t get caught with your pants down. As turns out they got calipers working found pads and can turn rotors to spec to approve for safety. I will still continue to search for these parts . they are not available i Canada but somewhere in U.S.they are there. Good luck. I called Ford RV services and they directed me to freightliner U.S. in SouthCarolina The #'s are in my rv at the garage but follow that lead. Only trouble is #'s they gave were wrong and very pricy. try aftermarket. All I can help with now. Jer

Just as a comment on Freightliner having parts for the John Deere chassis. I have a 1988 Fleetwood Limited on the JD chassis and was needing a rear rotor but was told by Freightliner that they no longer stock it and it is no longer available. Luckily they were able to turn the rotor but I am going to have to find an alternative for the day when I will really need the rotor. From what I have been able to determine the rear axle on these JD chassis is a Dana HD70 and that they were used on a number of dually truck models from at least GM and Dodge in the 80's. The trick is finding the 6 lug models, plenty of 8 lugs available. Anybody have any other info on this.
