Anyone know where to find a 2000 Brave front fender passenger side?

Title about sums it up... we were driving today and heard an incredibly loud noise in the front passenger side of our brave. It was windy as hell and I was focusing on keeping the rv in my lane and then the noise rang out.
When I stopped, I was looking at the front portion of my passenger side fender gone.
No clue what could have caused it but nonetheless it is now gone.

Can anyone offer advice as to where to source a new fender and or a parts yard that might have one?

What a bummer to see the rv with a gaping hole in the side!

Any help or direction would be great and appreciated.

thanks!

Goebs

My understanding is that Winnebago keeps the molds for past models, so if you contact them they may be able to make a new one for you.

Goebs,

Here is a link to the Winnebago Parts web page: Winnebago Parts - Parts for all Winnebago motorhome makes, models, and years, including Itasca, Rialta, Eurovan - Specializing in the Renault based Winnebago LeSharo, Phasar, and Centauri Motorhomes

For me they ask for my Vin and Serial Number and they can send me parts that are specific for my motor home.

Does this look like your brave? Winnebago Motorhomes - 2015 Brave

This is a 2015 Winnebago product. Perhaps parts are interchangeable, but probably not.

Safe travels.

JD

Just a note that the above folks are a good source of Winnebago parts, but they are actually part of Mobility RV, not Winnebago itself.

I have a 1999 Brave and one of the attachment points on my passenger side fender has come loose. It was epoxied on. I had better repair it.

Winnebago via a dealer is the best source for a new replacement if the salvage yards don't have one. Orobably is about $400.

John , I paid $65.00 including duty and delivered to my dorr in Canada, took me about 20 minutes to installed and refresh paint job,, $400.00 seems a lot of money for a little piece of plastic. :(

Awesome feedback everyone!!!
The place in Joplin doesn't have a panel. I spoke to the one in Iowa Lichtsinn and they just need my vin number and they thought they would be able to get me the fender. Hope they can locate it but if not I will continue to look at the other links and track one down.

It is the entire panel-fender so guessing it will not be cheap. $400 sounds about right...

Thanks so much!!!

I have bought from both Lichtsinn and Mobility RV-Winnebago Parts and have found shipping to be a lot less from Mobility RV. They both have daily access to the factory. Check them both.
