Redecorating our 1977 26T

The baby has new tires and a new A/C unit. She is roadworthy as soon as I get new shocks on her. Anyone have a part number from Monroe or any other shock mfg for them? I can't read any numbers on any shock. Has anyone redone their floors with TrafficMaster vinyl plank flooring and if so, what prep did you do and did you use any additional adhesive? My wife would like to replace the curtains in the front on the large window. Any one have any new way to do curtains there? If not, I need a source for the plastic slides that hold the curtains in place. Mine are so brittle from the AZ sun that they crumble when you touch them. Finally, what is the best source for light fixture lenses? I have all the fixtures working but no lenses survived the AZ heat.

Appreciate all the help and suggestions in the forum. My new tow vehicle is now a 2003 Durango, 5.9, full tow pkg and a 3.55 posi rear. I am seeing 12 mpg at 65 mph. Is that about what I should expect? My 2011 Nissan Xterra pulled it ok on the flat but the trailer often was controlling the Xterra, not the other way around. Can't wait to get the baby finished so we can camp again!

I think you can get the shocks, curtain slides and lenses from Inland RV. If they are not on the website, call them because they don't list everything. I have Monroe Magnum 555003 shocks on mine.

Inland RV, Out of doors Mart and Vintage Trailer Supply are great sources for parts. There are a couple of places that specialize in airstream curtains, I cant remember their name but do a search here and you will come up with them.

I just purchased new curtain slides from Vintage Trailer Supply. They are awesome. They don't need to be sewn on like the old ones; it's a hook and eye configuration. Order the drapery hooks they sell to go with the slides.

Bent Metal,
We need a bunch of slides for the curtains also.
I looked at Vintage Trailer Supply and found the curtain slides but am not sure which ones I need. I would like the ones that don't need to be sewn on like you mentioned.
Can you direct me to the right ones on their website?
Curtain Hardware
Thank you.
