Airstream specific parts weve bought in Jackson Center while in Ohio. Recently we were in So. CA. and stopped at Inland where we found some hard to find airstream motorhome parts. We have been in So. NV. lately and found Tom & Kathy at Double Eagle RV in Las Vegas to be very helpfull, though they are not specifically airstream, they do carry alot of related rv parts. Lowes is one more. For the mechanical parts we like to go to NAPA because they have supply houses all over the west and if they dont have something in stock it usually doesn't take long for them to get it.

I've purchased a couple of items from Camping World and always check their prices before my next purchase. Once shipping is added on, I find it just as reasonable to make my purchase from the store where we store our AS. I try to make as many purchases at my storage place - I don't want them to get frustrated and close down their establishment - $2. per foot for monthly storage is such a good deal and if I pay them for the year, they'll give me the 12th month FREE - AND IT'S INSIDE STORAGE. Almost too good to be true. They'll get it ready for the summer for $59 (flush out all anti-freeze, fill water tanks, propane, charge batteries, check tire pressure and power wash the exterior. I want them to stay in business. Plus, they are located about 8 miles from my home.

I found RvWholesalers is the lowest overall.

Inland has high base shipping costs.

THere is an AS dealer outofdoorsmart that has everything and low actual cost shipping.

I buy it where I find it

Camping World and an Airstream dealer are miles from us. I buy most of my bits from a local RV dealer, or at Home Depot or Lowe's, mostly. Or KMart and whereever I can find them. I have yet to order anything on line, but that will eventually happen, or ebay. There are just things I can't find around here.

You could, if you wished, call an Airstream parts selling dealer on a toll free phone number, to order parts.
