Hi there. First post, and greetings from a very snowy Suffolk in the UK.

Let me introduce you to Roger, our '83 Dodge van camper. We bought it in Vancouver in 2005 whilst on holiday, and did a little under 10000 miles in 3 months visiting 33 US states and 4 Canadian Provinces. It was such a good van that we couldn't bare to sell it, so stuck it on a boat, and it's been with us since in England. It's since done another 25000 miles seeing 18 European countries. Suffice to say, Roger is very much part of our family!

Unfortunately, the English weather has taken it's toll of the old thing. I now need some body repair panels, and hope someone on here can point me in the right direction. I should say that my in-laws live in South Carolina, and we are visiting next month, so I only need domestic shipping within the US.

I need inner and outer lower panels for the two cargo doors, then lower panels behind the rear wheels - the extended sill/rocker and the corner on each side.

Can anyone please recommend a reputable supplier of these parts so I can get them sent to the in-laws before our trip? Any suggestions would be most welcome! I've ringed the parts that we need on the photo below:

Thanks, Utterpiffle.

Well, I just wanted to say a big thank you to @apo234 for recommending Mill Supply.

What a great company - they went way beyond to help out getting the right panels for my van. They are all currently on their way to the in-laws place in SC, and we fly out on to join on Sunday.

Mill Supply literally couldn't have helped me more. Cheers!

Hi Utter,

If this helps, give me a shout via PM. I'm only over in Hereford & am just about to break my 79 B300 Maxi - same bodyshell as yours & mine has Santana camper hi top which protected gutters.

Engine & box sold but several of the panels may help you beyond what you 'think' you need... Always worse when you actually start cutting (i.e.: I have good steps, A pillars B pillar sections as well as good upper gutter rail rear corners - known deadly rust area). Long sad story behind decision to part out.

Regards,
