We need help

We just bought a 1973 d200 motor home. It's 26 foot long and has a 360 engine. We need to replace all of the brake lines but havent been able to locate anyone who sells them as a pre bent kit. Are there any online web sites who may have them?

WOW--a 45 year old rig--don't even know what a d200 is?????? Hard to imagine there is still a source for OEM parts for either the chassis or the house......

You can buy straight sections of brake tubing in various lengths at any auto parts store. You can bend the tubing by using a hand held tubing bender. Each section comes with fittings and the tubing ends are already double-flared as required. Just buy the lengths needed and bend as required. Flexible brake hose is also available for the short distance from the tubing to each wheel cylinder. Not a tough job. Don't try to do the double flares yourself, my experience. Keep everything scrupulously clean and bleed, bleed, bleed (the brakes, that is).

D200; isn't that a Dodge?

Rebuild the wheel cyls while your'e at it and enjoy your vintage MH!

Well we have one

It is registered as a 1973 d200 motorhome. On the side of the motorhome it is stamped midas right above the back tires on the passenger side. It is 26 foot long and sleeps 4.

Yes its a dodge and runs good. We rebuilt the carb and replaced some bad wood on the inside and sealed some leaks in the roof. This is our home and we just need to replace all brake lines to be able to enjoy ita

Get a tube bender from Harbor Freight and try bending some tubing as practice before you get into it. Not too hard. Replace all wear components, wheel bearings, brake shoes, wheel cyls. If power brakes, see if you can get a new power brake booster/master cyl. It will make your brakes work much better.

An image would help everyone understand what you have and get on the same page.

I think you mean B200, that's what's in your profile.

Found a '74 Midas advertisement. Close, right?

Google RV salvage. There are several yards who have old RV's and may be able to pull your parts from an old rig.
