1973 Overlander resources

Hello all,
We just purchased a 1973 Overlander that is in good shape for the year! We need and would appreciate tips on where to buy parts. I have a list of items I will be needing.
Entry Lock, Water heater, replacement parts for Dometic Fridge and freezer.
We are brand new to this community and it is amazing what is out there!
Thank you for any tips you may have!

We have used Vintage Trailer, Out of Doors Mart, and Inland RV for many things we have needed for our '72 reno. Camping World also has new stuff that has been valuable to us at times. We found a few things at Colaws Salvage in Missouri (online). They have multiple vintage wrecked trailers that they part out. West Marine carries electrical connections and water inlet stuff, etc. Best Converter for converters/electrical.

+1 for excellent service from PPL. I had a shipping fiasco with a range bought from them, and while I ended up cancelling the order after two damaged packages, PPL's customer service was excellent through the whole ordeal. I would definitely buy from them again, just not a range drop-shipped from Atwood.

I bought my Precision Temp 550 with the aluminum door and tons of other stuff from Vintage Trailer Supply.

Airstream Supply has not been mentioned yet. Not the best service, but they did have a couple very difficult to find used parts that I needed. Worth checking if you can't find what you need anywhere else.

I believe I got my lock parts from Out of Doors Mart.

I'm keeping a running listing of all the major parts I bought for my reno and where I got them on my blog. Might make for interesting reading if you're shopping around for stuff.

I have spent hours on the internet trying to find a salvage yard, so, thanks for the tip.
