I'm so sorry. That kind of thing is SO FRUSTRATING! I hope you guys have a laugh over this at your 25th Anniversary . . . We hang two separate sets of keys on the hooks inside the trailer door, and every time we leave, each of us takes a set. And at one time or another, EACH OF US has lost our set, at least temporarily.

Once you get into a routine with the trailer, it will all come naturally. At first, it's a little overwhelming . . . .

I have a set of spare keys inside a push button combination lock case that is VERY securely fastened to a concealed, yet easily accessible part of the trailer structure.

I also keep spare TV keys inside the trailer, and spare trailer keys inside the TV.

Add a serious case of an OCD habit of remembering to clip my key ring to my person when I'm out and about, and we're usually good to go.

Worse case scenario, I just have to decide which window to break to get inside one of the vehicles...(grin)

With reference to Streamaway’ lost keys

I share a “warehouse” with 3 other AS owners, with a total of 3 AS trailers (‘62–‘08?) and one Interstate. Our newest was asking questions as he tried to puzzle out the ways we could get water to run in our AS. I showed him where his fresh water tank fill tube door was, but his keys were not handy. On a whim I tried my ‘79 Sovereign key on his water fill door, and it opened! I can’t remember his AS year/model, but I think it might be ‘08 (?).

Then I went over to our ‘06/07 Interstate and tried the ‘79 key there, and it opened the Water door too! So find someone with an AS and try their keys!

I didn’t try the keys to outside cabinets on the ‘79 (rear locker, front 2 battery access doors) anywhere else (like the outside shower access door on the Interstate), but I will.

Point is, there appears to be some redundancy for some of the keys. As always, if you have a copy of the key you need another of, it’s always way less expensive. Even for just one key—if it reduces the cost from say (guessing) $50–100 to figure out the key to $2–3 for duplicating a key, that’s significant.

The water door key is usually a 751 key. Bog standard darn near forever...

Streamaway -> Keylist document



Also, suggest you hide a duplicate door key where you can retrieve it if necessary.

Awesome! Thank you...finally found a nice Airstream dealer part guy up in Boise Idaho- unlike the Scottsdale folks, he actually took the time after I sent him photos of my compartments, and located all my keys! And it didn't cost but $20.00 to get all the keys mailed to me- hope to get them this week! Thanks to everyone for such great support!!
