Don't forget your local auto salvage yards! While they DO occasionally get RVs and travel trailers, ya never know when, so you need to check around frequently!

BTW, JACK'S Auto Salvage in N. Billerica MA still has a 1978-vintage RV with a Dodge drive train, factory AC. (it's parked WAY in the back with the vintage trucks). While most of the little stuff is gone, there's STILL a good 19-foot RV awning on it, and two (2) Coleman rooftop AC units.
Coleman stuff is hard to kill, I'm betting they still work. I partly disassembled one of the units' interior parts, mostly to see how they installed the thing. All of the parts are still there.

Plus there's the RV roof ladder to salvage, the tub/shower base, who knows what else....maybe the 30 amp shore cord?

I use ebay power sellers a lot, and also rvsurplussalvage as shown above. One I didn't see mentioned was http://www.ronthebusnut.com who has some items of interest. One thing I saw he has that I'd really like to get is Sleep number beds in "RV Queen Short" for around $450 which is very affordable for a sleep number bed!!

So...what does short mean? My 6'5" hulk needed a real queen because a twin was causing me back problems. It turns out that having 8 inches of feet and legs hanging over the end of the bed isn't good for you. I'd just like to know in case I'm ever pricing new stuff out for my bus. For the record, all the twins in my bus are 6'6" long so even I fit.

RV Queen Short is what comes standard in most RV's... If you're that tall, they do offer regular size beds, even king size!!

United Truck Body is a good place to look. Tim has many parts on hand and the conncetions to get more as needed for the actual bus itself. It's not Canada, but 150 miles from Ontario isn't far.

except I'm at the other end in BC. And I dont have to many good experiences with ordering from the states. It works but only if you have lots of time. Sometimes items are held up at customs for no apparent reason for weeks.
