      I own a 27 foot SunnyBrook 5th wheel. On my last trip the left Tandem Fender Skirt was damaged. Will I be able to buy parts from Winnebago? If so, please send me a web site where I can buy a new fender skirt. Thanks, Larry

      Larry,

      Your nearest Winnebago/SunnyBrook dealership would be a good place to start. However, if you want to make repairs on your own there are plenty of places you can order parts on-line. Just do a quick Google search for “RV Parts” and you’ll get a good selection of choices. Genuine RV Store (http://www.genuinerv.com/parts-p612.asp) is a partner of RVGuide and you may be able to find what you need there.
