We are fixing some damaged siding on the side of our 1990 Fleetwood Prowler Lynx TT. I think we will need 2 rows, 26' long. It appears that the siding near the top has a different profile than the siding on the bottom 2/3 of the camper. I've been searching online, but not finding much. Links to pics are in my signature. we are in Michigan near Toledo,OH, so something in the midwest would be preferable.

Thanks!

Try a local roofing/building supply shop OR Mobile Home Supply shop, the panels are commonly called "Mesa Aluminum" and come in an "Polar White Krystal Coat" color that is the common ones for RV's. Haven't really changed that much in 40 years or so!

EXAMPLE-HERE Click on "Aluminum Siding Patterns" for the different "ripple" or corrugation patterns to match your RV!

Your best bet might be to call Fleetwood and see if they either sent all the TT somewhere or sold it to someone. I know a lot of times in the past individual manufacturing plants have a warehouse where they store left over stock. Locating it is a real bear and I had to go to the plant in Hagerstown, Md. get a hold of one of the plant supervisors who turned me over to a person who took me to their old parts warehouse.

A real big problem is that this siding is usually shipped in huge quantities because it has to be trucked and getting only a few pieces costs more in shipping than often the cost of the siding itself. I would be contacting some plants close to you and see what they might have leftover that would work and then you might replace the top two sections on each side of the trailer.

For an older trailer this can really almost make the repair more expensive than buying a new trailer.
