THOR #20785
Rear Bumper Thor 31w

Hi yall
I this is my first post on the Thor Forum, but have been following it for years. Seems I had a slight mishap and damaged the sewer hose carrier (rear bumper) on my 2017 Thor 31W. I live in middle Tennessee and have been trying to find a salvage yard so I can replace the rear bumper. Can anyone help me locate an RV salvage yard near me?

Your better option would be find a welding shop to fabricate a real bumper that would have the strength & ability to carry something heavier than your sewer hose & might actually slow a vehicle from the rear should that occur.

Yes, a welder.
Double deep, nice door, added backup lights, hard mounted roof ladder,swing away spare tire rack.
Designed, not minimal.
Do not compromise by replacing the bumper with the same bumper the builder thought was the least they could offer.

What part of Tennessee? It's looking pretty slim in Tennessee but there's:

next door in Kentucky which have a good reputation. Problem is, they're closed until the 4th of January.
