Fender skirt

Had a blowout on my 2018 Forest River Wildwood Heritage Glen LTZ which not only destroyed the tire, but the plastic tandem fender above the two wheels and some aluminum siding. Does anyone have any idea where I can find these parts ? I've called one company and they said it would have to be custom made. Trying to do it myself, reasonably. Any help would be appreciated.

Your unit is fairly new. Take the fender, or pictures and measurements, to a dealer with a good parts Dept and have them order it for your specific unit. That's what I did when mine was newer. Got the exact replacement.
The other option is to either find some generics that would fit, or have them custom made. Several outfits do that, and their websites show you how to measure and order. Price didn't seem too bad and I'm betting they are better than the OEMs!

Since it's a 2018 I agree that the dealer might be your best option. If they can't get it or seem high priced try here:

Mine self destructed. The connection points broke. Not installed well.

It was made to fail. I bought fiberglass mat and resin at Lowes. Rebuilt the crummy connection points in fiberglass and wood. three two hour sessions.

However, the internet is your friend. There are about four made in different colors. A little over $100. Search. Even Amazon has them.

Measure yours carefully! Easy. Mine for the Hathaway was available.

My wife is frugle and made me repair ours. looks 85% good. Not so pretty but, much stronger. I used bolts to install them, not drywall screws!
