I'm interested in the TV cabinet. Can you tell me where you are and what you want for it? Thanks. I am also looking for the venetian blinds for the side windows in the bedroom and bath of our 345. Also need the spice rack that goes behind the stove and a two bulb overhead light.

Hmm, we're in Austin, the moho is in Arizona, and the cabinet is in Colorado
I suspect we won't get back to Silverton before mid to late June...
If you still want it then, it's yours, but you'll have to pay shipping.m

I think the materials now used are beyond just prototypes. Not varied enough to replace traditional manufacturing processes, but suitable for none critical parts like weep hole covers for airstream motorhomes!

See Fab@Home under materials; no aluminum, but stainless steel does sound promising.

Would you need an 'stl' type file, or are there other formats that would be acceptable?

Yes, an STL file would be needed, unless you want to pay someone to convert your data to STL. I do realize there are materials available that are suitable for use beyond prototypes, what I was saying was 3D printers aren't the most cost effective way to make parts so they are not generally used for production runs.

Actually, I have been to that place. I grew up in Oak Grove, MO and Joplin is south of there....on a trip back to visit family, I stopped there.....and I had forgotten about it.....thanks for the reminder...will contact them.

That is great about your mother.....my grandmother lived to be 98 and my mom, almost 95 in that good ole Missouri land.

Rub rail moulding

I've just about exhausted my efforts trying to chase down the "guy from Galveston" that scrapped out a 310 and swore that he had saved the parts I was after. I'm starting to think that after 2-3 months and a dozen unreturned calls that he's possibly not interested?

Soooo, Is anyone aware of anyone with a Classic that has been set aside as a "parts" unit? I am in need of several pieces of aluminum "end cap" trim that are used to terminate sections of the 2 1/4" Rub Rail moulding that runs around Classic mohos at about bumper height. Any help will be much appreciated.

Charly

Hi, Try John in Canada.
Here is his email shepherd@quicklinks.ca.
He is a member on the forum and i had good dealings with him.
He has an Argosy but many body parts may be the same.

I believe I got mine on line at Camping World. They must have had to best price/shipping at the time. I am missing a couple and I will be replacing all of mine. It's always on the top of the list but never gets done. You can have my old ones if your not needing new and you can wait a bit.
