2005 sightseer parts supplier

We recently purchased a 05 sightseer. Where is a good resource for all types of parts? For instance, I need 3 plastic rollers that attach to the top of my glass shower slide doors. Any help will be greatly appreciated. We recently came off our first 900 mile 4 day road trip.

For common small parts as mentioned, I look first to the local parts places and put off the "specialty" places until I can't find it local in other places. Next I go to local RV supply and hope but it often gets down to ordering from online sites as far fewer places stock the small items that we need.
Much depends on how well we might shop and lots of luck!

Same for me. I have a 2005 Sightseer and when ever I need parts for anything, I just call them ... or email at [email protected]


They are good people and get the stuff mailed right out to me for reasonable costs.

Since I am an avid Do-It-Yourselfer I look for parts at places like Home Depot or Menards. If that doesn't work I check Amazon or Ebay. When all else fails, the part gets changed to something I can find locally. Mine has a WorkHorse Chassis. They are a PIA to find parts. Brake calipers and pads are GM part #, but Auto Zone and Oreilly's could not cross reference the parts! NAPA did better! Parking Brake Assembly is discontinued without replacement, but most small parts are available. Contact Workhorse for part #'s.
HAVE FUN! They are a challenge, but great rigs when they work right!

If I can figure out who the original mfg of the part was (Winnebago outsources a lot of their "small parts") I will go to their site and order directly from them. As an example TriMark is the mfg of most of the locks, hinges, latches, door locks, keys for the outside compartments, etc. They have a web site and you can look up your part there and order directly from them ---- then you know you have a part that will fit. Sometimes it takes some more work to figure out who the supplier was or the supplier may be out of business or has been acquired by someone else -- whole new ballgame. This is how I have found "stuff" I need. As someone else recommended, Ebay is also a good source as are RV parts suppliers --- I have bought from Lichestein (sp) as has been suggested also -- they are very good.

There's a good chance you'll find what you need here: https://winnebagoind.com/product-res...ct-information


The rollers you need may be from a company called Coastal Industries. I've ordered shower door parts from them in the past for my '08 Sightseer.

I’ve used the usual sources (Amazon, box store etc) for a lot but will also add a plug for Winnebagoparts.com. I needed a couple of switches for a project and I wanted it to look “OEM”. Winnie parts was great to work with, would use again.
