TGhe majority of my stuff for the chassis comes from O'Rieley Auto Parts, MH stuff is usually through an RV dealer and if not there I go to one of the used RV salvage parts places.

I use the motorhome dealers in my area (I'm blessed to have a bunch within easy driving distance). there is a place in philly called Matthews. They deal with used motorhomes. There's ALWAYS a good deal there. I almost bought a 93 holiday rambler from them...pep boys has good deals on some things. I guess it all depends on what you need. I tend to make calls and shop around BEFORE relying on the RV dealers. Prices can sometimes be outrageous there

roaddogg369,
I had an 88 29' with the brown stripes on a a P30 chassis. Had to put a new Fridge in it, front air bags and repair the ceiling strips that cover the ends of the ceiling material. Other than routine maintenance, that was it for 6years that I had it. I did some upgrades on the motor to get better power and mileage, if you have the 454, PM me and I will let you know what I did. It was under $300 back then, should be still under $500.

I have saggy ceiling fabric, that has pulled out from the plastic strips. Do you have a suggestion on how to get them under the strips again? (I recently bought this 88 southwind)

I was thinking of spray adhesive, and tucking under the strips but now am thinking I may have to remove the strips, stretch the fabric and then reinstall them. What do you think?

Karl,
I had that problem with mine also, cut some furring strips to fit and painted them to match the ceiling, then pulled the material and stapled it to the ceiling and installed the furring strips over where I stapled, it looked better than factory.
