Forest River parts

Has anybody ever ordered parts directly from Forest River? I just bought a 19RR and am looking for some parts. Specifically looking for some cabinet doors and door hardware. My plan is to enclose the "helmet rack" and make a real cabinet out of it. The doors from the cabinet above the sink would work good. I have good wood working skills and think it would be very easy to do. Getting the doors pre-made and pre-stained would make it even easier. If I can't get them from Forest River I have another outlet for custom doors. I also want to install one for access under the bed. I would rather not have to go thru the dealer. I found a number for Forest River parts 574-534-3167.

RKSWYO,
I love your idea! we too have a 19RR and would like to do the same.

Thinking about moving the spare tire to the ramp door and putting a door for under the bed. Check out the thread "Pimp my 19RR". Let us know what you find out.

I called Forest River and got re-directed several times. I ended up talking to Jamie at 260-593-2366. She is the Wolf Pack/Grey Wolf parts person. She was very nice and helpful. Here's what I found out. You can order cabinet doors and hardware from them. Doors can be a custom size if needed. The doors are stained and finshed to match. Pricing for the doors was around $24 each and the hardware for the doors was very cheap. Other pieces needed I will custom build.
This is a modification I am definatley going to do. It would give me a much better storage cabinet for food, pots and pans, etc. The door on the underbed storage would make it much handier and usable without having to lift the bed. Spare tire will be mounted on the back. They should come from the factory this way.
I just ordered my trailer and it is still 4 to 6 weeks out and I can't wait to get started on the mods!

It will be awhile but once I get the mods done I will post some pics!

I have been checking out that thread for awhile. There are some great ideas there. I finally pulled the trigger on a 19RR last week and can't wait to get it. Dealer said anywhere from 4 to 8 weeks for delivery. I'm ready to start modding!

Brilliant! Love the idea of under bed door! I hate lifting that thing and just waiting for the day my back goes out doing so!

Every camper I have ever owned has drove me crazy on the space that is wasted and could be utilized for storage. I have seen some great ideas on here for makingthe most of them. Outpost RV shows an option exclusivley from their dealership concerning the cabinet/helmet rack. It is a $300 option from them. Great idea but I know I could do it cheaper. Being able to get cabinet doors from Forest River makes it even easier. Stain should match perfectly as well as the hardware. I think you could do the doors and framing on the helmet rack for less than $100 and the under bed storage door for less than $40. These are tops on my list when my 19RR gets here. I also have some ideas for the pantry/wardrobe to make it better.

Do share your idea when you do them... I like it someone can "build a better mouse trap".

a belated thanks..

I just found this post. Getting ready for spring camping season and getting ready to do some mods. I am looking to do something similar. I want to take out the thin particle/cardboard on the ends of the dinette benches and replace them with matching doors/hardware. I'm pretty sure the doors above master bunk would fit perfectly. Thanks to rkswyo for posting the number and name of who to contact for my Grey Wolf. It is much appreciated.
