Help From The
Several RV manufacturers have specific ways to obtain manuals. Try these first. If they do not have the manual you need, just let us know and we will be more than happy to post your request.
If you check the manufacturer web site and don't see your make or model listed - call them. Often the parts department or customer service has manuals not listed on the web site.
Pop-up Campers: The site, PopUpPortal.com has lots of manuals in PDF format. Please check for your manual. If they do not have what you need, please let us know and we will be happy to post the request. If you find a pop-up manual from another person or source, please let them know so they can add it to their library.
Champion: Although not an official "manufacturer's" site, Champion Fleet Owners has quite a collection of Champion manuals and assorted publication that they are happy to share. Please contact them. Remember, if you find a Champion manual or any information (publications, ads, magazine articles, specifications, etc.) concerning Champion RVs, please make sure they get a copy.
Coachmen: Coachman offers owner manuals as well as several other excellent publication. Go to their web site, http://www.coachmenrv.com/OwnerManuals.aspx or call (800) 453-6064. Coachman is now part of Forest River so you can also contact them (see below) for additional help.
Dutchman: Dutchman offers downloads of manuals and support info from their website, http://dutchmen.com/. Select "Customer Service" at the top of the page, then "Owner's Manuals". If your manual isn't listed, call them at (574) 537-0600. (Thanks to Stacy. 3-17-10)
Fleetwood: Fleetwood, like many companies, fell victim to bankruptcy in 2009. They completely dropped their towable line and now only deal with motorhomes. If you are looking for a manual for any Fleetwood product, first try their website at http://www.fleetwoodrv.com/partsandservice/#manuals. If your model is not listed there, call 1-800-322-8216 for customer service. If you strike out on both resources, let us know and we will be happy to post your request.
Forest River: Hello Vince and Ann. Sometime ago you contacted me and asked if I’m the appropriate person to request manuals for the Forest River products for. At that time, I was the contact for all manuals, however since then, we’ve implemented some changes. Most manuals can now be ordered through our web site (www.forestriverinc.com) where we now direct all customers. If they are unable to get what they need through the website, they need to call 574-389-4600 and ask for their specific product line’s parts personnel and they can assist them with that. Thank you. Thank you, Steph Richardson Thanks Forest River, we appreciate your help.
Foretravel: I spoke with a gentleman in parts that said anyone needing a manual should call Foretravel at 936-564-8367. Thanks Foretravel.
Itasca: Itasca brochures and manuals are available on their web site. Contact info is also available.
Jayco: I contacted a very nice lady at Jayco and she gave me two avenues you can follow to obtain an owners manual. You can send an e-mail requesting the manual to email@example.com. Be sure to include the last 8 digits of your RVs serial number. Or, you can call 1-800-283-8267 (customer service) and request a manual. Again, you will need the last 8 digits of the serial number. Thank you Jayco.

Mobile Travelers: Hi! I stumbled across your web page and figured since I did, i'd add some info for Mobile Traveler RVs. Since the company died in 1990, I have been maintaining a list on Yahoo for the Mobile Traveler, as well as creating a new presence on Facebook. (Mobile Travelers Owners Group) Both of them are easily locate able on the net. Feel free to add this info to your page, as some MTer may find it handy. I used to work at MT in the 1980s. I am doing what I can to help owners of the MT since the company is no longer here. Sammy Williams
Monaco (Holiday Rambler,
An RV friend sent us the following:
NOTE: There seems to be a lot of confusion at the Monaco customer service center. One caller will get a HR manual and the next will not. We suggest giving them a call. If they say they don't have your HR manual, let us know and we will be more than happy to post your manual request. Thanks.
(Received this note from an RVer) Monaco (r-vision) I recently purchased a used 2005 21ft Trail lite travel trailer, no manual. I called the telephone number listed on this site and was helped by a very pleasant helpful man. I was able to get a manual. The cost is now $45.41plus shipping. The part number is s-03213438. This covers multiple sizes, floor plans & models up until 2008. He also said if I have any questions not answered in the book to be sure to call the same number and they will put me in touch with a tech who can help me. Also when you call, they do NOT have a trail lite choice. Choose holiday, rambler, national extension. Thank you for this site and link. 10-27-2014 kb (Thanks Kathie)
