I've removed the shell from my 1960 safari. The floor is removed and the frame is bare. I need to replace a few outriggers and have found some replacements at Airstream Parts for new and vintage Airstream trailers.

I got a little worried after talking to customer service....I wasn't convinced he was the most informed.

At any rate, does anyone have some insight on where to purchase these and what length do they come?

Thanks for your input.

I bought outriggers from outdoors mart. They worked good. There is a couple different kinds, and narrow body vs wide body. Take measurements of your and look through their site.
Not all those who wonder are lost.

I've looked into both of those company's, Outdoors Mart and Inland RV, and neither of them shelf outrigger's for a trailer's as old as my 1960, I called to make sure as well. I'll look into fabrication with the red iron.
