Bamboo Sliders for Cabinets

We have a 2009 Int. Ocean Breeze. It has the upper cabinets with the sliding acrylic panels. My wife saw an Ocean Breeze model with bamboo sliders. Ours has frosted acrylic panels. She asked me to investigate if the bamboo could be acquired and at what cost.

I told her I would ask the experts!

Thanks!

I am also looking for upper wood sliders for a 16' Sport. Doesn't necessarily have to be bamboo, but I want to pull out the accordion bread box cabinets and replace these with sliding wood variations. Not too crazy or complicated (so it seems). Any recommendations on who could cut these to spec and possibly ship?

I didn't get much help with this request but it could be because of not being as clear as I could have been with my question. The sliders we are trying to find are not bamboo but acrylic that looks as though it has bamboo imbedded in the panels. I found a picture on the internet that shows what we are looking to find. If anyone has any ideas on where to find them, it would be appreciated.

Just a long shot, but the Airstream corp website has the parts breakdown for all their models by year. You might try downloading the PDF files for your year and close by years of the Quicksilver Edition (which if I recall is the special edition that had the look in your photo) and see if they spec out the manufacturer of the panel, or maybe even have a part number.

I believe the "look" in your photo was a factory offered design.

So then you make your own from the material? Was it difficult?

Eddie Bauer

http://www.3-form.com/materials/vari...l_leaf_random/

The Eddie Bauer "Fossil Leaf Random" is one of the prettiest sliders ever. Still the feature I like most with my EB.

Basically there are all sorts of plexiglass sliders (or can be used as door inserts after removing mirrors, etc. I didn't go through the whole website looking for Bamboo, or "grass" plexi, but as you'll see these guys go pretty wild. You might also try "textured plexiglass". Some of the 70's units had a green or amber pattern that to me looked like the bottoms of beer barrels. Who knows what you might find if you look long enough. Basic plexi isn't all that hard to work with. This kind of stuff?

You don't have to go through the factory - and you're likely to find something even more attractive if you spend a bit of time searching.

Happy hunting. Paula
