I'm new to this site, but I always enjoy telling camping stories. I use to have a motorhome, but we traded it in at a dealership and got a new Coachman Chapparal 5th wheel. My family really loves it. I take my 2 grandsons with me almost every where of the summer. I really want to get some good accessories. I'm looking for a good place to buy RV parts though. I've been buying them from camping world and they're prices have been high compared to others after I shopped around. Right now i'm buying from www.camperpartsworld.com due to good price. Anybody else got any suggestions on who may be cheaper, or are these guys the cheapest on their RV parts?

I don't have a favorite place, Dick. When I need a part, I run an internet search and compare the price from several suppliers. It's weird that no single supplier seems to always have the cheapest prices. So I wind up buying the different parts from different companies. I'll try Camper Parts World next time.

Happy trails,

It's never too cold for camping; in fact, here in Oklahoma, cooler weather is the preferred season. The summers are simply too hot and humid.

Lol, that's how I'd like to be if it wasn't for the wife. Camping is the best way to go. It's gettin colder this time of year and she thinks we can't go camping anymore. If it was up to me we may just go out and freeze, but I would be single lol.

Dick, too funny! I was the same way -- either ON a camping trip, or PLANNING my next camping trip. Until, about a year ago, I gave up and moved into the motorhome full-time. Now, I'm ALWAYS camping!!!


I absolutely LOVE meeting my fellow RV'ers. All (except for a very few) have proven to be warm, friendly, & helpful folks who share similar interests to me.


I agree, the fifth wheel is probably the better way to go...

Hey William, thanks for posting. I'm a retired state worker and all my life I have enjoyed camping and meeting new people that camp. It's been an honor to meet a lot of people that share the same interest as me. When I'm not camping I'm usually trying to plan a camping trip lol. We've seen a lot of places in my old motorhome and I just got a new Coachmen Chapparal and just gives me the freedom to unhook at a site and explore a while instead of having to drive my class c around everywhere.
