Radiator shop should be able to get replacement if unable to fix yours

Any good radiator shop will dismantle your old radiator and keep the upper and lower tanks and mounting brackets. Then they will replace the core with an off the shelf unit to replace your old radiator core. The problem is that most shops cannot deal with an RV so you must remove the radiator and take it to them.

There are two kinds of shops now days. OLD and NEW

The new shops are just replacement shops You bring you ride in they figure out what is bad and order a new one and put it in. Easy Peasy.

But the old style shops FIXED things.. A raditor for example has several modules The upper tank, lower tank, Transmission cooler (often part of lower tank) and so on.. What a Radiator REPAIR shop does is remove the top and bottom tanks if they are good RE-CORE the thing (that is the heat exchanger part) and put it back in... Unless the problem is a bad tank. these shops should be able to fix ANY radiator.


Home is where I park it.

Radiator on my 2000 Spartan chassis started leaking late last year. I removed the radiator myself and took it to a local radiator shop. The completely rebuilt it for less than the radiators I found online to replace mine. I put it in and have just returned from a 6000 mile cross country journey and all is well.

This fits a 1988 - 1992 Spartan chassis.

MAC's radiator will rebuild your radiator, and they probably have the dimensions on hand to built a new one if you prefer.
