Designer needs technical info and resources!
I am a designer / fabricator looking for resources. I just purchased a brand new 2019 Forest river Salem 200RK.
This is my 3rd travel trailer I've purchased in the past 10 years. I buy them as a blank canvas and completely refab them.
For this build, I'm taking the Salem 200RK and redesigning it as a polished luxury travel suite. It's refreshingly low-key with clean, minimal interior aesthetics...which makes for a great start.
It's a budget build, but I have a talent for doing fantastic builds on the cheap. I'll post before and after pics.
Specifically, I am looking for electrical wiring diagrams, structural diagrams, and other in-depth technical information on this model. Does anyone know how I can obtain this? Is there a shop manual or technical manual I can purchase?
Also, I've researched higher end Forest River travel trailers and motorhomes. I see my 200RK interior parts / interior colors used in higher end models...which creates a great mix and match grab bag of high-end bits. I'm planning on trying to order some of these parts from the local FR dealer unless someone knows a better way.
Lastly, anyone have a resource for an RV salvage yard that might have newer FR bits? We have one here in Phoenix but it's mostly older stuff.
Here's a few pics of my last build just for fun.
