I'm looking for a upper door section for a 2003 3023. I suspect the door is the same across several models. Do you have one? Thanks, David T.

My experience is that UPS tends to have high shipping costs for retail customers. I recommend that anyone planning to ship something check out USPS.com. In July 2023, the post office introduced something called Ground Advantage. It appears to be similar to Priority Mail - which is still offered - but a bit slower and a lot cheaper, and box sizes are not pre-determined. My wife recently sent something that clocked in at over $30 Priority, but less than $11 by Ground. Delivery was only one day later.

Just my observation ...

I do, but not right at this time. I have a new upper door (long story) that Iím going to put on my project 2000 2720, at which point Iíll have that door available, minus the window. But the project 2720 is in storage and I donít have access to it until AprilÖ

If you can wait till Spring Iím sure we can be in business.

Iíve learned while parting out this camper that itís best to get quotes from UPS and USPS. I canít figure out any rhyme or reason why one is cheaper than the other on some things but not others. Size and weight be damned, itís a different outcome every time, and I think destination matters too. But I will agreeÖ Shipping for retail customers is absolutely outrageous. Iíve had more deals fall apart because of shipping.

And oddly enough, TrailManor seems to pay retail rates to ship parts out of South Dakota.

Have you thought about listing your items on eBay and using eBay shipping? It's a lot cheaper.

I have not! Of course that would require me to actually know what I have available…

Ebay shipping is cheaper than retail USPS or UPS, but the eBay fees and taxes are terrible. It is worth checking, but I'm not sure how you would come out ahead. Maybe it would work if you are shipping something that is physically big or heavy but inexpensive, so the sales tax is smaller. But be aware that the eBay tax bill includes a tax on the selling price, a tax on the listing fee, a tax on shipping, and a couple others that escape me.

I can use the door without a window. No hurry, my door is usable but is deteriorating from the inside out. When you have a chance could you post some pics? Thanks
