We use several different stores both online and off. For minor repairs, such as pipes, rivets, plumbing, carpet, etc.. we use Lowes.
There is a small RV store in our town ( Patterson's), that carries some of the older airstream parts but not many, they are mainly for S.O.B's.
I buy all of my curtain sliders and new light fixtures, from Outofdoorsmart.com, or Vintage Rv Supply.

I live outside calgary canada. A city of over a million people. I shop where I can for airstream parts . The closest airtream dealer is about 200 miles away in edmonton to far to drive for parts. I think if Airstream cannot have more certified dealer around they should let local dealers order parts from them. Also more people may buy airstreams if they they could get them serviced and get genuine airstream part locally or at least near by.

A dealer for Airstream, must have a fair amount of knowledge about their products, before they would consider an agreement with them.

Without that knowledge, the girls in the their parts department would be bombarded with calls from an unknowledgeable dealership, as many parts are unique to Airstream.

That is something that Airstream strongly avoids, if possible, excepting perhaps a new dealer that is selling their trailers.

For our customers convenience, we ship parts daily, worldwide.

Airstream cannot and will not sell any parts to anyone, unless your in Jackson Center, Ohio, other than a dealer.

They will sell, "on line" most all the items from the WB store, but that's it.

This was updated by them February 12, 2007 at 8:45 AM pacific time.

I've bought stuff like pumps and propane fittings at Camping World. Lots of stuff at the local Airstream dealer, and online from Vintage Trailer Supply.

The best deal for appliances was Palomino RV Parts. Saved more than 30% on AC, water heater, furnace, refrigerator, and some other stuff. Shipping was very cheap. 100% satisfied.

And I got my Intellipower from Randy at BestConverter.com

C & G Trailer Service in Bellflower is terrific....Rod and Darlene are open 6 days a week and have been in business there since the mid 1960's. They are very knowledgeable about both new and vintage Airstreams.....

Also, down the road from C & G is Deluxe RV for stuff like hitches, brake controllers and lots of other RV type stuff including propane.....pj
