Window Position Guides

I have a 1971 Airstream tradewind--several pairs of the guides are cracked, broken, They are the older 'white' plastic. Everything available now is in 'black' plastic. Without changing out the whole set of guides on the trailer, does anytone know where to get pairs of the older white Guides?

guides

You may be able to get them from InlandRV.com. However the ones you have found in black may be what is now standard for the guides. They may have been changed due to UV issues with the OEM guides. Andy R. @ Inland will be able to tell you what is available or if the black ones are a current upgrade from the original white ones. Ed

I think they are only black. Get some good quality aerosol spray paint

The white guides went south about 40 years ago.

THey were cracking when still in warranty.

Black is the only color available, but you can paint them whatever color you wish.
