Steel and Aluminum Tariffs

Just curious, does anyone know what affect the steel and aluminum teriffs might have on Airstream?

Question asked on one of the AS tours I took last week and we were told tariffs would have no impact on Airstream. All of the aluminum is sourced from Alcoa, either US or Canada

Although the panels may not be affected, many of the parts will be.
I work in a manufacturing-based industry and we are being told to expect price increases from suppliers.

I am sure that the sinks, water heaters, refrigerators, wire, electronics, and other parts going into an Airstream may be increasing.

Right now we are hearing figures between 5-8 range to a 15+% range from various customers and suppliers.
