I was thinking the same thing, but he's looking for parts, not selling his trailer.

I'm not going to search...but there's a thread buried here somewhere talking about door replacements, where someone (trainjunky maybe?) replaced their Bigfoot door. I don't think you'll have too much luck finding a used door in great condition. There are brand new doors that are exact matches for ours. I think the doors on our trailers are actually one of the industry-standard generic trailer doors. Unlike the egg-shape trailers, ours can take a more standard door design.

Thanks Zach

Correct, looking for parts to repair/ update, I can probably get the items from the manufacturer, just thought I would check used or salvage market first. Thanks for the reply, will check the threads for entry doors! Billi

I knew that, just thought a pic would be helpful to anyone who might then be able to make another useful suggestion. Absent that, my shootin-in-the-dark suggestion per the windows is unless the frames themselves are damaged beyond repair (or just plain missing) replacing the glass and perhaps the butyl seals might work.

The problem with finding parts from an exact trailer is that they have to be worse than destroyed before someone will attempt to rebuild it. If you have the windows you might consider rebuilding them and having the glass replaced if broken. The door on the other hand is a stock part that is readily available.

Gotcha.

Guiser there's not a huge used market for these, and anyone "parting out" their trailer is going to have a trailer in rough shape. I agree it's worth trying though, especially for windows.

BTW, there's an RV graveyard with what looks like a real treasure trove near Shelton Wa- dunno where in Washington you are but it would be worth a look if it's not too far away.
