Airsream shop manual(S)?

Hello everyone,

Well, So far I am pretty happy with my Motorhome. However, I was wondering if someone knew where to find the Shop Manual for an Airstream motorhome, if available? Same for the P30 GM chassis. I am sure I could find a use for them sooner or later...

I have looked and searched this site and the web but didn't find much. Any help, lead or comments are welcomed!

Thank you!

Francois

Since you didn't mention the model year of your coach, there are two possibilities. If your coach is 1986 or earlier, you can purchase photo copies from Secretarial Services as described below: (Quoted from Vintage Airstream Club FAQ webpage)

Quote:
Q: I need an owners and service manual for my Airstream. Where can I get one?
A: The first owners manuals were published in 1964. Prior to that, the owner received a brown envelope containing parts lists and other helpful information on the accessories in his trailer. The VAC has started making these available in the Members Archive section. A service manual with instructions for performing service operations did not exist until 1972.
You can get photocopies of owners manual (1964+) and service manuals (1972-1986) from:

Helen Davis Secretarial Services
PO Box 484 Sidney, OH 45365
(937)492-8885

Prices are about $33 and $70 respectively. After 1986 the Owners Manuals included available service information
For later model coaches, Secretarial Services would be worth a try, but I suspect that the more probable source would be the Airstream factory. Have you tried contacting Airstream via their website?

Good luck with your search!

Kevin

Francois please do tell us the specifics- someone may have a copy to share with you. I have found P 30 chassis manuals on Ebay in the past also, as well as the Airstream service manuals on occasion. It is helpful if you put your model and year under your forums ID so others can respond who have a similiar unit.

Yes, I have been looking on Ebay, and everywhere. It seems that it will take some patience. Any place that sell the P30 Chassis manual? I need to adress a small leak on my Master cylinder, and it seems quite hard to get to.

I will also contact Helen Davis, thanks a lot Kevin!

By the suggestion of AlanSD, I added my Airstream model in my forum ID. I overlooked this since I wasn't yet an owner when I signed up!

Francois.
