Need help with 1977 Excella 500 parts


We just got a 1977 Excella 500 that's in poor condition. We would like to update it to acceptable shape and need help knowing where to find good deals on parts.

For example, we are looking to replace a side window and frame, stripping, and some other pieces. Also, the back end has been hit and needs a fair amount of work. Can someone make a recommendation on whether we should replace the whole end or just part by part? Related to that, how do you deal with the rivets on the aluminum?

Thanks for any help you can provide.

Laurie Here is a link to a dealer in California who specializes in vintage airstreams. It is INLAND RV. Ask to speak to Andy. HE will have the window, and panel parts you need.

Inland RV Center - The Nations Leading Expert in Airstream Innovations

He can even perform the work for you.
