Welcome. If you provide a list of parts that you need, someone may have a suggestion on where to buy it.

just about everything in the ventura are off the shelf parts. Water tank is the same as a boler but different fitting placement. Let me know what you need and I can probably point you in the right direction. I have a 76 Ventura that has been "updated". Know it inside and out.

Needed Ventura parts

The main thing I need is an entrance door 22x66. Wouldn't mind to replace the fridge it only works on gas. And really would like to change the windows.
Thanks David.

The door is a pain to find! One from a truck camper might work. I ended up building one from a household plywood interior door cut down to size , I then laminated white Formica inside and out. Installed the original aluminum trim and replace the latch with a Fastec lock and sold the old one on ebay for $120 (Bargmann L400's are rare and worth a far bit).

As far as the fridge, if it works on gas then you should be able to get it working on AC and DC fairly easily. If worst case find a dead one and grab what you need. There was a great trouleshooting page but the link is dead I will see if I can find the info. There are a lot of manuals for dometic in the document center. The best bet for replacing these small fridges are ones from a tent trailer. Find someone gutting one due to moldy canvas and you can probably get one for less that $50.

Ventura door

I'm in the process of rebuilding our Ventura door using 2 white Alpolic panels., new vertical sliding window and existing door hardware. I will order new weather striping. One problem we have is the canvas covering on the door hinge has rotted away causing the door to leak, so this will also get replaced. Alpolic is a brand name you can find more information at alpolic-northamerica.com
