Doesn't a 98 use the same doors ? How about other years?

Go to the http://www.irv2.com/forums/f105/ National owners forum and ask.

Temecula RV Service, RV repair, RV Parts, RV rental and rent RV storage I have heard these folks have National RV parts etc;

Would an insurance co. have resources that could help?

plastic cargo doors 99 National Seaview

well, here i am again. almost 4-5 months of searching for 2 plastic doors
for my RV.

i am getting pretty frustrated but yet i am continuing my quest for these doors. i figure if i keep searching i will eventually find them???

i have tried every rv salvage yard in the country but to no avail. i keep
getting told that i will have a hard time finding these doors.

i cant understand why they are so hard to find. this is considered a older
motorhome since it is a 1999 model and not a 2010 or 2011.

i am sure a Tropical, Seabreeze and Seaview from 1999 thru 2001 will work
as i beleive they all used these blue plastic cargo doors?? If not someone
here can correct me. i found a salvage yard that had a 99 Tropical
but apparently all the doors were replaced with aluminum doors???

The man at the salvage yard said they were not the same size i needed??

oh well, i will keep trying. any help out there will be greatly appreciated.

thanks frankie

In Quartzsite AZ there is a RV partshouse called The Gambler, he has a lot of stuff that was obtained from the National parts inventory when they folded. His main facility is in Adelanto Ca. right next to Victorville off of I-15. Google The Gambler for a phone number, should be area code 760 They just might have the doors, I know he had a lot of stuff there. Been there and the yard was amazing.

On the furnace motor--one of mine started squealing, had to replace it. Mine didn't have any way to oil it. You could try gaining access to it outside and try spraying some oil towards the squirrl cage, it might work. Bought the new motor from The Ganbler in Quartzsite, cheaper then anyone else I could find.

Search ' national dolphin rv' on ebay. There is a burnt one listed for parts. Not sure it is the same as yours but they look okay condition. It is at a trailer dealer in Sycamore IL.

Do any of the former National dealers still have parts or were they all sent back somewhere ?

Call The Gambler, they have a lot of the National inventory after they (National) closed.

If they don't have what you need in Quartzsite, they may have it at their yard in Adelanto, CA

I'm looking for doors as well for a 1999 Sea View - 8330 - and i've called the guys at Ortega and they're more than happy to make you doors for almost $1200 a door... not painted...
Id like to know what happened to all the "stuff" that was made for these RVs... Did someone buy it all up and its just sitting in a wharehouse waiting to be found again...
We should get the American Pickers or Storage Wars guys on it for us...
I'm going to try "The Gambler" and see what he's got!
