European hinge clips

At Alumapalooza this May, Airstream said they are aware of the hinge problem but didn’t know that clips were supposed to come with the hinges. They found this out later. We asked for some and got them at no charge. Not sure what the cost would be if you need them shipped.

I think $13 to ship is too much, but it will be worth it.
If I have some left over, I'll send them to anyone who asks.
Yes please. I'll split shipping and take a bunch whatever that works out to!

Ordered these clips and they are no longer steel. We’ll have to wait to see if the plastic ones work.

Me too. I looked at the hinge in the closet, and the clip and it made no sense. Since I had to visit the dealer anyway, I took a clip with me and showed it to a service advisor. He had no idea either.

Google is my friend. The plastic thingy goes between the metal shell and the attachment part.

I was at my Airstream dealer the other day for a unrelated item, so I took one of the plastic clips with me. The service advisor had never seen one so he took it to the Airstream experts and the service guys and neither had ever seen it. I guess if you sell the units and never use one, there's no reason to "Fix" the problem.

Until I Googled the images, it made no sense to me either.
Here's some pictures from this issue on an old thread. Thanks to the OP for the pictures.
