Smile Need Airstream manual '76 31' Excella

Hi, I purchased a '76 31' Excella that has a few problems. Actually , several problems. Would anyone know of a good Airstream-specific repair and maintenance manual? Not just the owners manual but an overall renovation manual.

Service manuals are available, for the standard trailers, but not the Excella's, since they were limited production.

However, considerable information in the manual would still be helpful to you.

Sarge, That would be cheating! How else will you grow to appreciate the love-hate relationship with your A/S!
I have not seen a specific repair manual, however, there are many many resources on this forum that I have found very beneficial. Just ask lots of questions, post some pics, and enjoy the ride!

Thumbs up Thanks, Andy and Lewis

Andy, would you have one of those manuals for other model in stock?

Lewis, some call it cheating, some call it educating oneself.

found GOLD!

Well, not gold, but I did find the repair manual and also the owners manual for my '76 excella 500. I owe the previous owner a kiss, but he's a dude, so that's not gonna happen. Maybe I'll kiss his wife instead!
