Step away from the trailer...

one could put a couple of coat of wax over it, but really u better not fiddle with it.

i think i see a faint central metal/color change on both rivets, as seen with olympic rivets after shaving....
Attached is a picture from one of my previous posts. The circled seam is where this is occurring, on both sides of the trailer, and only in these two locations. The photo in post #1 was taken on the street side. There are several locations on these two seams where this is occurring to lesser degree than the photo in post #1, which is about the worst case.

I will hold off doing anything to the trailer until I contact the factory. The only thing I have done is wash it and give it a coat of Walbernize RV Super Seal. Does anyone have a good number to call at Airstream?

The faint discoloration may just be a reflection of the other RVs around me. We keep the trailer in an indoor storage facility, and other SOBs are relatively close, but then I’m just an amateur at this.

Thanks,

Randy

hi rodney

i agree with michelle.

save yourself the frustration of a call

and email chris with the close up and a not-so-close up picture.

he is really sharp and will get this sorted out.

IF your trailer has this problem along both sides...

it will be interesting to read what solution they offer.

replacing both formed lower panels is a skill intensive project...

because a lot of rear interior would need to come out (buck rivets) for 2 full panel replacements.

in fact your showers stall would need to be removed...wow.

ok don't panic yet,

the best compromise repair (imo) would be applying the classic trim at the belt line...

ringing the entire trailer; besides the trailers look more finished with the trim.

i'm not a big fan of the unfinished panel edges on the safari line exactly BECAUSE of the problem you now have.

we've had AT LEAST 2 other members here with the same problem and repair.

cheers
2air'
