Default Spare parts needed

I believe there is a caravan breakers somewhere in Norfolk somewhere. I am in need of some spares (new blinds for roof vents, a ladder for drop down bed over cab etc.) - can anyone give me some links please. I have done a search, but not had much joy!

Many thanks

caraparts on fleabay would be your cheapest option. They may have what you want either new or used - and are quite cheape, super fast on deilvery.

Phil,

Depends on what roof lghts you have as regards blinds, we may be able to help same as with ladder but they will all be brand new prices unless he has some from repairs.

Give Ian a ring on 01-580-883061 and ask him.

Peter

I can recommend O'Leary (http://www.olearymotorhomes.co.uk/) for parts such as those you are after, they buy up excess stock from dealers (when they close down etc) so a their stuff is new but at reduced prices.

Their website only has a fraction of the stuff on it that they have so I'd suggest phoning them to see what they have - as they are lots of warehouses you can't just turn up and go looking round them as you'll be lost in them for a week!!!

Also, try Ebay too, you'll be surprised what people sell on there!!!

As per the op, there is a breakers in Attleborough, although not in Norfolk there is another in Ipswich.. there are a few round the coast too

Just google caravan breakers norfolk suffolk and they will all come up

Equally, try www.yell.co.co .. you can specify exactly what you want and where you want it
