2002 UA cargo (basement) doors

in a hurry @ fueling station & took out 3 cargo doors. contacted winnebagoparts.com to order replacement. found out they no longer sell & told to find a local shop to fabricate. 4 month later & i can't find someone to make these. tried internet search for 1) dealers & recycle sites, 2) rv body repair, 3)sheet metal shops, 4) metal fabricators, 5) RV parts mfg. no luck.

there's Rehorn body shop in Sacramento that does fabrication & excellent work, but, i'm in frisco tx hear dallas. i told them that if they could make these, they could make a killing. gotta be a bunch of UA, UF's out there that have the same issue.

Help????

I would think you could find a sheet metal fabrication shop in Dallas or some other big city near you. Or maybe a body shop can do it. Best I can think of, sorry.

What are UA's and UF's?

Google says they are small Class C's? Is that right? Got a picture? That would be cool to see.

Did you try all the salvage yards? I know that's a chore because there's something like 3,000 of them, but someone is going to be salvaging your model. You might not get the same color, but the doors can be repainted. I just did that with my '02 Journey and it cost $1100. For ONE DOOR. Door from the salvage yard, paint, and labor to paint the door. Door replacement article...

Here's a small list of salvage yards: Used RV Parts & Salvage...

Note that it's often hard to get someone at a salvage yard to actually talk to.

Remember, all the Winnebago brochures are online...

2002 Ultimate Advantage brochure

The doors don't appear to be flat. Are they skinned with sheet aluminum?

A few years ago I took out two compartment doors on my Ultimate Freedom. Winnebago suggested a fabrication shop in Eugene, Oregon called Tri-Metal fabrication. They had all the Winnebago drawings and were able to duplicate my doors very closely. Had to have them painted after delivery. Might give them a try.

Their contact info is:
Address: 3825 W 11th Ave, Eugene, OR 97402
Phone: (541) 684-9167

thx RD. don't know the sheet metal industry & how they make these. would you have to take an undamaged door & have them fabricate a duplicate? take drawings? thx for response.

thx lenp. i'll give them a call, i got a shop in CO that can do it, but, they said they may need me to send an undamaged door. guess they want to make sure they don't have it come back as a misfit. i'll give them a try.
