Yes they should, they have access to all the parts breakdown. May take awhile tho

probably not. In PUP's they tend to use the same laminate style for multiple years, as opposed to TT which often have changes mid-year.

Worst case scenario - it is not going to be a perfect match. Talk with your dealer. Odds are good they can source it for you, probably from whoever made it for FR back in the day.

We have learned that those suppliers are often more accommodating than the FR anyway. We had a custom drawer made for our new trailer, it was an easy process (dealer called them, told them what we wanted), is a perfect match and was very reasonable.

Seems like this may be an opportunity to upgrade to a stronger cover, maybe using 1x6 cedar so you can use it as a seat.

I don't think the cover was ever meant to be a seat. Besides the cover breaking away from the rear hinge two blocks that were mounted on the side where the cover rests on broke off. I was able to reattach them by putting in a slightly longer screw. Would it be cheaper to get the part directly from Rockwood? Does anyone have their phone #? I couldn't find it on their website.

do you have a picture of the cover? Odds are it would be cheapest to fabricate something on your own that would be more durable.

However, I would guess that the part might be cheaper from Rockwood direct. Their customer service webpage directs you to go through the dealer though...

Looking at this website, I'd say it could be upgraded strong enough to take weight. Bet it just needed a cross support in the front to keep it from cracking.

When I did damage Prime Time refered me to the dealer. May be cheaper to find a local reputable cabinet maker.
