Only a couple come to mind in the immediate DFW area......North Dallas RV and Explore USA RV in Ft. Worth on I-35W (10600 South Freeway).

North Dallas RV has been around for years and probably has more experience with the items you need.....some folks swear by them and some swear at them.....just know what you need done.....


A dealer that a lot of folks are happy with is:

Bayer Motor Co. 18417 S. US Hwy 377
Dublin
TX, 76446
Telephone: (800)859-9205

See what you mean, Andy

Andy, I see what you're referring to. We will probably replace the axles - but after tires, brakes and shocks unless we find they are worse than we thought.

You are probably right about chasis rust. It probably has plenty. The floors are very firm, but I'm sure we may have to give attention to the frame, too. There is no apparent tail drop, however.

Until we go far, far away from both home and an AS dealer, "if she's rollin, we be ridin' (in our tv). LOL

If you happen to be in Dublin, be aware this was the birthplace of Dr. Pepper. Not only was it invented there, but the original factory still makes Dr. Pepper there to the original recipe with real cane sugar instead of high fructose corn syrup.

They do tours of the factory and have a museum onsite - Dublin Dr. Pepper comes in the original 10-2-4 bottles and fetches a nice premium in the local stores - if they can even get it.

A worthy distraction!

Waco was the origination point (and home of a museum exclusively devoted to). The art deco headquarters in Dallas was torn down a few years back to put up cheap retail/housing after a leveraged buyout.

Dublin Dr. Pepper & old headquarters building

One can occasionally find "Imperial Sugar" branded D-P, but is is neither the same, nor as good, as original recipe as found in Dublin.

W.W. "Foots" Clements put Dr. Pepper on the map in the 1960's. Silver haired and silver tongued.

North Dallas RV is easy to get into and out of. There are several threads in re Dallas/Ft. Worth and other A/S service facilities that ought to be read.

I didn't know that. It turns out the Dr Pepper bottling plant in Dublin was built six years after the invention of Dr Pepper in Waco. The Waco Dr Pepper was never bottled. Apparently, the Dublin Dr Pepper plant is only allowed to sell within 44 miles of Dublin - the limit of the franchise agreement.

I never had much trouble finding it in Stephenville, handy if you're running either 281 or 67. Used to make a turn in town where they'd stack it outside a convenience store. Easy to grab a case and go.

Camper Capitol is a supply house in the D/FW area for the small stuff (in Garland, on Forest Lane; I635, NE of downtown Dallas). I don't know how much past a $1k I spent there on all sorts of little stuff for our Silver Streak. Old, with long-time employees. Well worth the drive to get a paper catalog and peruse the selections, upstairs and down.
