I have a call into the deal right now. Sometimes it seems that things get done a lot faster on these forums. Thanks

Sorry to hear of your damage from the blowout. The dealer should be able to order that for you.
On a side note, What brand of tire blew out? How old was the tire? How many miles?
Good luck finding the new skirt and I hope it does not cost too much.

Skirting fr wildcat

Cruchman asked about mileage year,age of tire. If your steel belts broke you maybe able to claim compensation from the manufacturer.

I found it alot easier to bypass the dealer and go straight to parts at the manufacture.

Save the tire carcass and tread for a claim.

There is an outfit near Fresno CA that makes discontinued skirts. I think they are called Sierra Engineering. They made some for my Cedar Creek 5er

Just a follow up in case anybody is looking for this in the future. The sheeting is called j wrap. I really appreciate all of the comments and suggestions. These forums always seem to come through when looking for answers.

Lower radius skirt IS available from FR and the fender should still be. If not you can get the fender from Icon.com. Big cost is freight and crate for radius metal. Your insurance will cover all but deductible.
