Depending on the part you need, most parts these days can be found and ordered on the internet. Most major RV supply stores have websites you can access to search their inventory and order parts. Make sure, however, you order from the reputable places.

When determining what parts you need, be sure to peruse the inside and outside of your trailer to see what's wearing down, what need fixing, and what needs to be replaced. Some travel trailer parts may just require a little maintenance, a little grease if you will. Other parts might need to be replaced or upgraded depending on how old the part is and how old the RV is.

Within the two overall groups--motorhomes and trailers--there are smaller groups worth noting.

Trailers can be subdivided into these following categories: park models, travel models, 5th wheel hitch, and pop-ups. you.

General travel trailers are typically larger than pop-ups and come in a variety of different shapes and sizes, ranging from a small bedroom-sized travel trailer to big apartment-sized travel trailers. Manufacturers build these rigs close to the ground because they have to be pulled by an appropriately rated tow vehicle. Since many of these rigs are similar, many travel trailer parts are transferable.
