Bonjour Jean-Luc,

hope you had a nice trip to the pyrenees, did you visit Perry??

Here is what I did...

I called ZipDee as they had no email at that time, but now they have... and told them which year and which length our trailer is. They gave me the exact dimensions and price without shipping, maybe they can help you with a shipping quote to France, if not you need someone who ships it for you...
A friend of our family offered us some help as he ships parts in big Containers from Germany to the US and back, so maybe there is a company in your near that might have some extra space for your small but long package...
Another way offered to me is to put it into an Airstream Trailer that is shipped from the US to Europe, big advantage is that the parts probably wouldn´t have to clear customs in Europe as they are in the trailer and look like they belong to it...
I think Remco from the Netherlands is looking for a 31'footer, ask him if he would put it into his trailer if he buys one in the US or post a requst on the forums...

If you are looking for used parts CherokeeRV might be a good place, but I would be too afraid that some parts are missing or the the Awning is not working properly whe used...

Good luck!

thanks for your help;I m waiting for the original vin number and I will write to zip dee ( I did write already but they need the vin number )
nobody knows a place selling used parts ? or do you think It s not safe enough?
thanks for the idea of shipping the parts in an airstream to europe
I am not in a hurry so why not
bruno, I was in bordeaux with the trailer on the 8 of july going south on the 10 th.
I didn't go to perry's place this year ,because I was working on the other side of the pyrénées
hope I will go there next year....
