I need to order 2 large parts for my motorhome: the ladder on the back, and the 8 foot long metal trim piece at the bottom of the rear wall. I found the parts and I wrote/called Winnebago parts department. They told me it will cost about $200 to ship each item. There are no Winnebago dealers near me in South Texas (Alamo, Texas). The closest ones are near San Antonio about 4 or 5 hours away.

I would like to get this done here in the winter and then try to sell the rig. After thinking it over, I have 2 strategies to reduce the cost. I am going to ask Winnebago if they can ship them together. $200 is better than $400, but I don't know if they will do that. I will also ask them what is the cost to ship them to an RV shop here in South Texas. Winnebago told me it's more expensive to ship to a residence than a business.

Does anybody else have any ideas how to get the parts and not spend so much on shipping?

You could once get large items put on a Trailways or Greyhound Bus but I doubt that option is available any more. I don't see many bus stations around anymore. So you are stuck with UPS or FEDEX freight or common carrier trucks.
The problem is getting the package to the truck I doubt Winnebago will cooperate at their end.
