Parts places on internet for p30 chassis

I posted this on the land yacht section of the forum but after thinking about it, this might be a better place, if you are a mechanic or not, solving your MH problems and finding parts I am looking for best source parts for p-30 chassis, found lots but they only seem to carry a small range of parts.
I've been searching for rear axle rubber bump replacement. figured it would be an easy search, not. Lots of places have shocks, mirrors etc but a simple pad of rubber or poly not so easy. Anybody have a good site for lots of parts at good prices?
Thanks,
Dave

Our dear old P-30 is a bread truck chassis on a cool body; parts are still available; bump stops are moot if the springs and air bags are kept in service.

Only have air bags on front, springs look ok as the rear sit higher than the front, when I used the levelers I had to lift the front about 4 inches on a level pad. I have noticed p-30 billed as stepvan but Chevy must have changed quite a bit for the MH chassis, bread trucks are rated at one ton. Bump stops should stop the bone jarring thud when the springs bottom out on hitting a large pothole.

What year and model do you have? I thought all Classic mo/hos had rear air bags.

Land Yacht 30 2000 not the classic, this is the MH that uses f/g above the Aluminum basment storage. For the PO it weighed in at 5260 steer axle and 10,800 pulling a jeep at 3780 pounds for a total of 19,840 more like a tank than a bread truck.;-)

Dave-
The P-30 has been such a popular and dependable chassis for the motorhome industry for many years it is widely found on everywhere. Many manufactures used it beside Airstream. I have never had any problems finding parts for my 82. I even found brake parts in stock at a tiny off the beaten path shop in rural Georgia. If you are doing the work yourself check with a local large RV dealership and they will be able to help you. If a dealer is doing the work I would maybe question the dealer's knowledge about the chassis and what they are doing.

I have a p-30 chassis also and I never have had problems with the rear. The front sat a little low until I replaced the coil springs with heaver ones. That made a lot of difference. I have always found the parts I needed at most auto and truck stores. If the local stores don't have the parts try Winnebago or other dealers who have sold P-30 chassis.

Look at Mill Supply. They are on the internet. They have a lot of P-30 stuff.
