All the more reason for us to keep our eyes peeled for orphans parked behind barns or forlorn in boneyards.

Colaws is not in Joplin, it's in Carthage, MO. Here is their website. They have lots of Airstreams, but they also have lots of customers. Good Luck.

If you have no luck, I dont think it would be too tricky to make something that would look presentable.

The bottom half is a piece of aluminum sheet, that any decent metal shop could slip roll or english wheel to the curvature.
It has a few holes in it with mesh over.
The top piece is trickier, because of the angle around it, but its main face is flat with some louvers for cooling.
Many metal shops have a Louver punch.
The 2 halves are joied with a hinge.

I may have to do that, but not right now. I'll going to keep looking for now. I may be lucky, I hope

The upper louver door is the same width as ours, so AS used a different latch set-up than yours and others, plus the middle hinge and the lower panel, which is wider (41 3/4") to take the bolts. I wonder if there is any one in your area that would loan you their's for a fabricator to take measurements? I also wonder if your's could be modified like ours, so this problem will never happen again?
