    Default Where To Buy Lowe Trailer Parts?

    Or does a different company make them?

    I just bought a new to me Lowe FM165 with trailer. Well, I'm not use to the extra length of towing compared to my 14' Lund. I hit a metal pole while pulling into the gas station within the 1st 10mins of owning it. Good thing it was there protecting the pump stations....

    Anyways, clipped my fender up really good. How do I go about replacing it? Or can I just buy any fenders online and it'll fit no problems? Currently being held together with ducktape.

    Yup, it actually cause me some headaches registering mine, since some of the paperwork says Lowe and some says Karavan. You might check the Trailer Parts Superstore also, I bought parts there that are identical to the ones on my trailer.

    I forgot to mention, mine is a 2005. Dont know if that matters. On the title, it does say Lowe though.

    Mines a 2006, it says Lowe on the registration and Karavan on the warranty.

    just talked to Karavan, my VIN is not a Karavan VIN.

    So in 2005, Lowe's trailers made by someone else.

    Any clue?

    *edit*

    Called up Lowe's and got to talk to someone on the 1st ring, lol.

    Yacht Club Trailers for 2005 models.

    wow, I barely got squat in my package. The dealer cobbled it together with stuff lying around their shop. I was not amused. Talk about piss poor service. I made sure to tell Lowe about how they operate. I never got an actual Lowe manual for my boat. But from what I heard, it's very generic and not of much use. The rest I have (except trailer one). My trailer is a ShoreLander from Lowe. Very nice trailer, just too damn long in the tongue!

    I'm not impressed with Yacht Club. They havent responded to my email inquires in 2 days.

    With Karavan, they replied the next day. And when I responded back. They replied within the hr.

    I have to say, my Dealer/Saleman was very very professonial, day of pickup went through the whole package in a large waterproof zip lock folder(Lowe Manual, Merc Manual, Trail Manual, Lowrance x50 & some other stuff....then went over every thing concerning my boat. Then they took a picture for their Website.
