1962 Avion T-20

I am new to this forum and am in the process of buying a 1962 Avion trailer that needs a restoration. It has everything in it but needs lots of work. I was wondering if someone could tell me the best place(s) to buy parts. I need a front door handle/lock, some cupboard doors and window cranks and probably LOTS more misc items. I haven't picked it up yet, hopefully this weekend.
Also, I would like to talk to anyone who has restored an Avion similar to this and can offer any advice.
Thanks for your help!

I did one of these. There is no easy source for parts specific to Avions. There is an Avion Owners group somewhere and I believe the Cato (sp?) brothers who had the company before Fleetwood may be still around. Some parts which are generic are still around. You could also try Tin Can Tourists and Classic Campers.

Sail on silver girl. Sail on by. Your time has come to shine.

Good luck finding door parts. Impossible to find. Other parts can be found at Cayo, Vintage trailer, and Inland RV. Come join the Avion Facebook pages, lots of friendly folks.
