The best way I've found to ship odd/heavy/weird things is to take it to a moving company who does freight forwarding, Such as United Van Lines or Mayflower or one of that crowd. they can handle it. Sorry but I have no idea what they would charge, but it shouldn't be much. One of the ways it may be cheaper is that they usually won't do a "to your door" delivery, but rather just bring it to their transfer station/warehouse, and one may then pick it up there. I had a small collection of instruments and sound gear shipped out that way, I felt very uneasy letting them go out (secured and sealed in a crate with transfer tags and all kinds of paperwork) but they got to their destination safe and sound. get the insurance, its not expensive.

I ship a lot of different types of equipment. The moving company's do better with the fagile stuff.

Wow, $540? I think I would just enjoy a drive Oregon for that much, lol. So basically, I need to poke around. The canopy would be shipped to me, not from me. So I would also need to find someone that is willing to put up with the hassle of shipping the darn thing. Thanks for the answers guys!

the #1 most common key for campers, toppers, RVs, trailers, toolboxes, etc is a CH751.
with this key over 90% of the campers, toppers, RVs...etc...etc can be opened.
There was a time when the industry got rather lazy and this was the only keylock option made.
They've since smartened up a bit.
But you stand a pretty good chance of getting that key from any RV dealer/supplier.
and yes, you can recore the handles with a new key if you wish. often times its just easier to get a fresh new handle with the new lock installed.
Hope this is helpful in some small way.
(by the way I used to tick off my buddies out camping by opening all their storage hatches and trailer/camper doors with one key...MY key)

I took my camper topper to a local locksmith and he took it apart and made a key for it. However that is true about the seal. I have two toppers and the seal is bead on both. Anyone know where to score new seals?
