Bathroom cabinet door for 2003 Nuevo

Post by Hellfire on Sat Nov 01, 2014 5:08 pm

This is my first post since buying a 2003 Nuevo, our first motorhome.

We bought the van a couple of weeks ago from Lakeland Motorhomes. We'd popped in on the off-chance just to look round and they had taken it in part exchange just an hour earlier. We were able to haggle for a really good price. 

It was in immaculate condition, just one owner from new. The only thing was that the left hand door on the locker under the sink in the bathroom was missing. Apparently they had broken it and could not get a replacement.

I e mailed Auto-Sleepers but they said they no longer supplied that part. So, does anyone have any suggestions as to where I might look. I suppose vans do eventually get broken up. Is that a possible source and does anyone know a breakers that might have scrapped a Nuevo

Thank you

Nick

I think a lot of the plastic parts on AS's were made by Cheltenham Plastics (who I believe were taken over by AS) or by Plus-Tech Thermoforming Ltd who are based near Hull. (info@plas-tech.co.uk - 01964 544 544). May be worth giving them a call. If all else fails this company will make one to pattern but in the absence of one to copy (unless they can use the other door to do something) I'm not sure but worth a try...

and you could also try O'Learys and Magnum Motorhomes who both buy surplus and discontinued items from manufacturers..

If Hellfire doesn't want them, I'll have them 'just in case'.

I have a pair but I'm holding on to them as I've read so many posts regarding them breaking. We may change the van in the spring so they may be available then if we haven't had to use them.

OK, if you are a ASOC member, a technical sheet is available. If not, this is what I did, use body filler to fill the corners, tap the filler with a m6 tap, use stainless steel bolt instead of the plastic pivots and screw into body filler with plastic spacers, DM me for a photo
