Compartment door

Well, I did it. Caught the guard posts at a gas station, and ruined the driver side compartment door, last one under the slide. 2005 Seabreeze LX 8321.
Anyone know if/where I can buy one, or should I take somewhere to have the fiberglass redone (where?)

I can't confirm that they still have parts/molds, but Ortega Manufacturing was said to have bought the molds for National RV bins & end caps. Give them a call to see if they can help.

I also ran into a gas pump concrete post a few years ago. Went to a local auto repair shop and their fiberglass guy was able to make me a new one. It was perfect.

Guess you need to look around and ask around for a good fiberglass person.

You can also check with these guys. They have some salvage units and may have what you are looking for.

If you have all or most of the pieces, a competent fiberglass shop can repair it. You might also check with a boat repair shop for an estimate. Once you have an idea what the repair cost will be, you can compare that with the cost of buying and shipping a used one. Don't forget to factor in the cost to paint the replacement to match after you receive it.
However,,, Fiberglass is not difficult to work with and if you are handy you might consider fixing it your self. You can use West System Epoxy instead of resin as the bonding agent. If you make a mistake, grind it off and start again! You can learn everything you need to know on You Tube!
Then all you need is someone to paint it for you.
