New Airstream owner

I just bought a 90 34 ft. Excella. I am new at this so any advise or information would be appreciated. My Airstream came from Fla. and I think it was close to the ocean because of some rust on steel parts. The skin also has a light hase that looks like it would wash off. I got a huge note book with the trailer and have been reading all the information on maintence and up-keep. I need the names of some good supplyers that sell Air stream stuff at reasonable prices. I want to buy a set of fitted sheets for the beds and I would like to find some material that matches the couch to reapolster the chair. This may be asking too much! Thanks for the help.

Congrats on your purchase! I am not sure there is a "one stop shopping" sort of catalog or place that you can get ALL your supply wants. You might start off with using the search forums here and inserting a particular word or words such as "slipcovers" or "rust removal", etc... You can always look at the various forums and pick what subject matter you have a need to look at currently.

Good luck with that big rig of yours!

Welcome to the forum. Your most important first task is to become acquainted with the "search" box at the top of the screen. By typing relevant words into the box, and hitting the enter key, you will gain access to the huge amount of information on this site. For example, try " paint", then "paint a-frame" then "rust" then "rust frame" (prepared to be scared", then "upholstery" then "sheets" then "fitted sheets" then "suppliers" etc etc.. These results will lead you to other threads.
After spending a few happy hours researching, you may wish to come back here with any unanswered questions. Again, welcome.
P.S Whatever you do, do not search on "load distribution analysis"
