Question Rib & Frame source ??

I have read several posts and used the search but I have not found a source for the Ribs to do the repairs with. I'm giving a friend of mine help repairing his airstream that had a tree limb hit the front upper corner.
Need to find the rib or frame pieces if possible.

Or how do you folks buy raw stock and make the "Bends" to keep the proper contours?

Look forward to your advise.

Welcome and good luck with the project..

Best bet is talk to a metal shop, They may be able to bend it for you.. I had my local shop fabricate stuff for me before..

You can get the rib, bow, channel, and outrigger pieces from any Airstream dealer.

What year Airstream are you needing parts for?
