Tambour

In case anyone is looking for a place to get some, here is a link to a good site.

http://www.outwater.com/tambour.htm#...AMBOUR%20DOORS

I'm sure this company has been mentioned before. I used to buy from them all the time when I was in the cabinet business in NJ. What a warehouse! So much stuff that can be used in an Airstream. LOL

www.outwater.com

They have a 950 page catalog you can order. Great stuff.

My 72 has what I think was simply a dark walnut wood grain. I still have a few pieces laying around in the garage that I will check later. Too cold out there now in Tampa! In the 40's this morning!

40 in Tampa? Amazing

When I read that I just had to check. It is exactly 40 deg. here in the woods of Minnesota at 10 am.

Here is another tambour site someone previously posted in a tambour thread here:

http://www.winonamanufacturing.com/index.shtml

I have a couple of broken tambor cabinets and most seem rather fragile. I don't know whether I want to repair or replace them with something else at this time.

I've found that if you pay more attention to the serious stuff, like replacing sagged axles, replacing rotten floors, sealing water leaks, resealing the vistaviews, rear end separation, etc., etc., the tambour problems sort of get cast off to the side.

Don't you wish they would have at least used the plastic tambour in the entire trailer? I have yet to have had any problems with the plastic variety.

Tambour

Greeting Chas!

The plastic tambour can be a problem as well. My '78 Minuet had all plastic laminate tambour, and all of the roof locker tambours had bowed out from the effects of age causing most of the doors to be inoperable. When replacement time came, I went with birch veneer tambours (from TapEase) with a pickling stain that approximated the original plastic laminate color.
