Motorhome Vandalised

My 2005 Forest River Georgetown XL, 34 ft., was broken into and vandalized. Cupboard doors were broken, glass inserts smashed, light fixtures broken, carpet dirtied, but the worst was the dash was smashed beyond repair.
The RV repair Shop has been able to fix or repair everything but the dash. It is beyond repair. They tried to glue it together so it could be fiber-glassed from behind, but it kept falling apart.
They have been unable to source a replacement dash. Does anyone know where one may be found, either new or through salvage?

Ouch sorry to hear that. I would start calling junkyards and watching craigslist. You could also try ebay.

Hi did you try FR they may have information on who may have parts. Hope the insurance is covering most of your costs.

break'in and entering

Worthless people! Sad to hear that. Hope you get it repaired to your liking. My coach is housed on the property and I use a driveway sensor in the coach. As Mr. T said "pity the fool".

That is an awful thing to happen and hope whoever did it will rot. There is a huge RV salvage yard near Carthage, Missouri, just off I-44, called Colaw. They may be able to help you. Phone number is 877-548-2125.

May be able to go to a good fiberglass and or boat repair facility and have them make a new dash for you.
If you have a rough idea of the shape or some of the structural pieces intact, they should be able to make a new one for you.
A good fibergass shop can make just about anything
