Oh, gosh, that's going to be expensive, especially that refrigerator!

If you want to buy new, I'd suggest shopping first for products (models), and then searching for those products across suppliers by price.

Some folks would prefer to buy used, and for good reason. There are several RV salvage yards, including a big one in Carthage, MO (SW Missouri), not that terribly far away for you, relatively speaking. It's called Colaws:

We Have Your Part…*|*Colaw RV Parts and Salvage

Keep in mind that while Airstream bodies are unique, the appliances they use are not. What varies a lot is the particular model of the appliances that will fit into the hole in the Airstream from the original.

I've found great service, best prices and fast delivery from PPLmotorhomes.com in Houston, TX. I replace my water heater and fridge and they had the best prices on both items plus very reasonable shipping charges.

I recently ordered a new porcelain toilet from PPL. It was damaged in shipment. A phone call to PPL took mere minutes and a replacement was sent that day without question. One of a very few internet purchase experiences with an issue that was resolved so simply.

We bought our new fridge from PPL, Houston after shopping for near six months. I even tried to get my local RV store to work a deal on the purchase of $5K worth of appliances, no go.

I could not get a better deal than PPL.

Ditto on PPL Houston, bought new refrigerator from them,

DON'T buy any used or refurbished refrigerator from any place in Conway AR --- I had a very bad experience with them. All to save a couple of hundred bucks.

One thing that always tickles my fancy is a Craigslist or Ebay ad for an AS that says, totally restored adn then in the pictures is a dorm sized refrigerator from Lowe's or Home Depot.

lol

Recently when I was shopping for a new fridge (Dometic) I looked all over the Internet and ended up going to CampingWorld locally and speaking with the manager. I took the printouts two best prices I could find, one was their ONLINE price on sale but it had freight charges. He ended up beating BOTH prices for me and I left with it.

Big Discount RV gave me the best price on a Dometic Frig. I had it shipped to a commercial site with a loading dock instead of a residential delivery and that saved me a lot.
