New Furnace Needed

Hello, I need to replace the furnace in my 31' '74 International Sovereign. Can anyone point me to the least expensive vendor? I know of Truck and RV Supply in Indiana and will contact them. Does anyone else have a supplier I should try?

I need to get this done in a week or two at the latest.

New Furnace Needed

Greetings 74SovereignInt!

I notice that you are located in Illinois. If you are in the Northern part of the state, you may not be too far one of my favorite Airstream repair facilities - - Ace Fogdall RV in Cedar Falls, Iowa - - see:

Ace Fogdall RV - - Cedar Falls, Iowa (Airstream Dealer)

They replaced the furnace in my '64 Overlander and did a fantastic job, and overhauled the furnace in my '78 Minuet. They also have a full parts department and accessory store.

If you are in the Southern part of the state, I have had very good luck with a dealer who is not associated with Airstream. They handle a number of brand X RVs, but have an excellent service department and a well-stocked parts department and accessory store. Kampers Supply is located in Carterville, IL between Carbondale and Marion on Route 13. They have a web presence at:

Kampers Supply

Good luck in locating a new furnace for your rig.
