Hi guys,

That depends on what parts you are looking for. Engine and driveline stuff is easy through places like Rock Auto, NAPA etc. Travco specific parts are another matter all together. Windshields are available (at a price!) as are rubber extrusions, but many things will need to be found through the members at the Travco Facebook site and the Yahoo group.

Another thing about Travcos is that their chassis parts can be a real bugger to work on, since they still were using the older style front end components. This applies especially to the brakes and steering. They used a "novel" brake system that uses no less than three master cylinders with 2 hydrovac booster units located mid-chassis that supply hydraulic pressure to front and rear brakes independently (sort of). Bleeding air from these systems is challenging, to say the least, and since not many brake shops know how, or are even willing, to work on - it's likely that you will become an expert. :-)

Travcos are great motorhomes, but like all vintage machinery, you will require patience, time and $$ to repair, restore and maintain them. Having mechanical, electrical and plumbing skills will also help keep you reasonably sane and enthusiastic. I possess all of the required skill sets, experience and willingness required to handle my rig, but it's funny how few wives (or husbands) find it amusing when things go wrong on the road. Heh heh. The main thing is to get Auto Club Premium membership with extended RV towing. Don't ask me how I know.

Good luck and have a great time!

MATT
