Wheel Well Fender Skirt

Hello
I apologize if this question has been already asked but been a couple years since I have been active on this forum.

I have a 2013 BH26. The wide stance black fender skirts on my unit are both cracked. The cracks stemmed from the screw area and over time have gotten so bad they now need replacement. (Guessing these screws are too tight from factory?).

Anyone in Canada find a dealer or parts store that have replacements ? Everything online seems to require me to ship from the states and the order for two fenders are I'm being quoted nearly $600cdn !!! Insane prices.

Any help would be appreciated

Thanks

Try icondirect.ca. They have fender skirts and I used them for a outer skylight replacement.

If yours are like mine (2014). Then they are no longer made. You can get knock off ones front icondirect. You can not get the CR logo embossed any more.

Save time and money and get the icon ones.

The screw holes on my skirts cracked from a tire failure I was able to repair it by expoxying stainless washers over the cracked holes. It has held up for fives years so far.

I reinforced the back with fiberglass plys and resin, then epoxied the holes from front. Drilled new holes Made a solid fix. Used flat head sheet metal screws with speed nuts on the back so they won't loosen up. Painted screws to match repainted skirt.

I ordered one from Guaranty RV in Calgary and I think it was around $100. Try Canadian Leisure Travel in Calgary ask for Radar in parts, he has always been most helpful.

When you order make sure you order the right one, textured or flat.

Good Luck

This is exactly what I did after a blowout. After doing the epoxy work, the cracked areas on the outside were sanded smooth & then I sprayed the whole skirt white. I also epoxied the stainless steel washers in place to provide more uniform pressure on the skirt. It looks brand new.

Cost to do the whole thing was around $20 and an hour or so of my own labor.

If you're not into the DIY thing, then you can check with Designer Coach Works. They are a very good RV body repair shop. I personally would not buy anything through Guarantee RV. After several botched warranty repairs and a not great sales experience I have no confidence in them.

I found a replacement for mine pretty reasonable on this site.

Kagex,

Try Allstar RV in Sherwood Park. The cost for new fenders is reasonable but they get you on the shipping. I paid all in just under $300 for 2 new ones. Best to buy them local as my first set showed up as the wrong ones (this was even after I gave them the VIN). This way it is easy to return them. I bought them this past summer and they are the OEMs.
Take care
