Had a fire in this area and would also like to find the molded rubber wheel well that melted. Will add pictures later. I can rebuild the wheel well with aluminum if necessary.
If you decide on new Airstream parts, a few Airstream dealers stock them.
Other than the fire damage, has the trailer been waterproofed?
As an example, the sewer vent pipe cover gaskets only last 2 to 3 years, other outside gaskets, maybe 15 to 20 years.
