Question Manufacturer / segment numbers for exterior skin panels?

Does anyone know how do I go about finding out what panel number this front section is? It's from a 1973 Tradewind, if that helps.

I'd like to set up an eBay search for it so I get pinged if one comes up.



Thank you!

-Alana

The original number is 14.

The new style metal number is 29.

The metal banana wraps have been obsolete for many years.

Be warned, that a used segment or quarter panel cannot be salvaged unless the entire front or rear shell is completely removed from the rest of the trailer.

There are "blind rivets" that hold the segments and quarter panels in place to a "main bow".

There is no way that they can be sheared off, unless you can access the back side of the segment or quarter panel.

Then there is the cost. New segments and quarter panels are not expensive.
