Moon caps

Put the hub cap over two of the three lugs and hit the edge of the cap over the third lug with the heel of your hand. It should pop on without denting.

Can you please tell me where you found replacements? I am missing my baby moons and would love to replace them. Even our dealer can't locate any. Thanks very much.

Replacement baby moon

Holiday, a Airstream dealer in Albuquerque NM, got one for me 5 or 6 years ago. I believe they got it from Airstream.

Redneck Trailer Supply stocks them. Here's a link to their catalog. Your wheels are on page E-8, and the corresponding hubcaps are on page E-10. I replaced my wheels with 16" so I could fit LT tires, so know my part numbers, but you'll have to confirm which 15" wheel Airstream fitted. The original wheels are Dexstar, and this is one of the best sources for us consumers.

We were able to get two baby moons at $15 each when we were in Jackson Center on July 15. Our invoice shows "410922 CAP-BABY MOON CENTER 75TH." The parts desk couldn't find them but the resourceful tech who was fixing our AC did find them.

BTW our BAMBI75 (#01/75) has now been towed almost 60,000 miles and has been towed in all the lower 48 states and all Canadian Provinces except Saskatchewan. We have camped in most of them. We expect to at least tow in Saskatchewan, Yukon Territory, and Alaska next summer, perhaps also towing in DC and Northwest Territories. We will probably never make it to Hawaii and Nunavut.

Quick question for Bambi-75 owners... does anyone know where to get a replacement light for the bathroom ceiling to match original? Switch failed in ours (#12) and I can't seem to find a match anywhere.

Thanks.

Hey,

We just purchased a DW and believe it is the one Previously owned by Ethel. I have a couple of questions:
Where do you find the production number?
What do you replace the speakers with if you take them out?

This is our third Airstream. As you can see by my side bar, we like the late model unusual models. Though the CCD in the metro look is pretty common place these days, ours was the low production original black and white.

Love the Winick as it is a nice middle ground between the Westy and the 28' CCD. We are very excited that we found one at the right time as we have long loved their styling.

I'm a modern quilter and I love having a new excuse to create. I currently blog about my quilting at pedalsewlightly.blogspot.com but I have an Airstream theme blog that I started to share with friends and family too. Etherbourn.blogspot.com. I may need to resurrect it for the Winick.

Thanks,
Gayle

Thanks

Hi Gayle -- congrats on the 75. We love ours.

The production # of 75 is stamped in the bottom of the 75th Anniversary badge just right side of the door. At least ours is. And the Airstream VIN should be stamped into the tongue arms somewhere.

Haven't replaced speakers ... yet. I think our next project is pulling the CD changer and replacing with something digital. Already swapped out the TV and antenna for digital signal; not to mention a much lighter TV.

Safe Travels!

Thanks Racoco

Found it!

Our Westy had several standard features hogging valuable storage space. We removed the TV, a large retractable clothesline in the bathroom and a safe in the kitchen, apparently these are common in European campers/caravans.

With bluetooth, iPads and iPhones I do not see a need for all the A/V equipment. I'd rather have the storage.

Don't worry, we save everything so that it can be reinstalled if necessary.

We replaced our 4 Sony speakers with 4 of these from Amazon: Pioneer TS-A1675R 6-1/2" 3-Way TS Series Coaxial Car Speakers. They are better, but we used the original Sony covers because they fit.

We still have the original Sony TV and Sony receiver since they still work fine even though the TV requires a conversion box, but we will probably remove the CD changer when we rebuild the cabinet that is falling apart. Still have the subwoofer but thinking of removing it to gain storage space; the new Pioneer speakers have pretty good bass.

Insurance for a 75th

Hey,

We are having a difficult time finding someone to insure our unit for its fair market value. We have found in the past that NADA lists Airstreams well below FMV.

I don't remember having the insurance issue with our 2004 CCD or our 2005 Westy but we did have problems when we went to sell the units with purchasers trying to get financed. Thankfully, we were able to find cash buyers for both.

We have contacted a classic car appraiser and I have made a list of 2006-2007 19' Airstreams that are currently for sale. All are well above NADA.

Any answers to the following would be appreciated:
Airstream Appraiser contact information.
Is your unit insured for FMV or NADA?
Do you feel comfortable being underinsured if at NADA value?
Info for insurance company that is willing to insure for FMV.

Thank you so much!

Bird's nest,

We purchased our trailer last spring. It is insured at FMV by Nationwide insurance. We have our house, cars, and my business with them. I'm not sure if that has any impact. They just needed a bill of sale and I provided some comparables from the forum and eBay.
