1. Original Manufacturer Replacement Parts
Original manufacturer replacement parts are made by the manufacturer to make sure that when something is broken in your original motorhome, you don’t have to replace it with a less high quality part made by a random RV company.
Purchasing the original replacement part can make a big difference. For example if you have an Airstream class B motorhome and you need to replace an exterior part, you won’t even notice any changes when you use an original manufacturer replacement part. There are certain RV and motorhome supply stores that specialize in providing original manufacturer replacement parts for owners of motorhomes.
2. Salvage Parts
Sometimes when a motorhome is destroyed by an accident or by the elements, there are still many parts of it that are in perfectly good condition. When this happens the owner often sells these items as salvage parts for a small fee. Junkyards also often have damaged class B motorhomes that have many useful items that can make your motorhome better. These parts are often original doors, windows, compartment doors and more.

Interior parts that need replacing time after time are water tanks, such as fresh water tanks and gray water tanks. Window latches and door latches are also some of the first things that break because they are used so often. Such parts including water pumps, waste sending units, fresh water sending units and waste tanks can be purchased in most RV supply stores.

If you need parts for your camper van shower or refrigerator you will need to find a place to get class B RV motor home parts.When we needed parts for our 1993 recreational vehicle we always checked online first. We find the best products, warranties and prices, this way. However if you are having problems with the van it self, tires, brakes and other parts related to the operation of the RV in most cases you can get what you need from any auto parts store.
Check the prices, warranties and service before you buy anything. Compare the RV store and auto store and go with the best value. Don’t forget to include RV club discounts in your comparison. Our refrigerator failed while we were camping in Oklahoma and had a replacement sent to us in two days.
A friend purchased an awning for her B motor home in 2002 while camping in South Dakota and is still using it.
