Greetings John L!

The front window rock guard for a Minuet can be a bit of a problem. It is one that several of the Minuet owners on the list are struggling with. Since the Minuet is 8" narrower than the standard Argosys and Airstreams, the typical Airstream rock guard is too wide. The only Minuet owner on the list with a rock guard at present reported that the center section had to be narrowed to fit; and Airstream has confirmed that this is the only way to obtain a rock guard for a Minuet.

I have recently acquired the three piece awning to be modified for my Minuet. The wing window sections are identical to the similar model Airstreams and Argosys, and I acquired a slightly imperfect center section to be narrowed the approximate 8" that will be required to fit the Minuet. I don't know if any of the rock guards other than the three-piece would work on the Minuet.

I tried to find a rock guard through Colaw's RV Salvage, but was not able to get one through them. Eneded up purchasing the parts separately through an E-Bay auction and my Airstream dealer.

Good luck with your restoration.

Kevin
