We have them made with fiberglass.

You need part # 69812.

We've got one of Andy's shrouds on our Sovereign, it's very rugged, and much thicker than the plastic shroud that came on the a/c.

It looks exactly like that.

By the way, the axles on that trailer are beyond being history.

New AC Unit

I have a great idea for a new ac unit. If I could only get it to snow a foot or two right before a 100 degree weekend?

Linda.

Measurements are not necessary.

We have the original Airstream molds.

The only difference is that the original covers were molded from plastic sheets.

Our replacements are made with fiberglass.

Too bad you're not closer to SW Washington. I have an extra one for free. Impossible to ship economically, however. Darol

Your in luck. I rechecked and it is 3x4. You have to double check these things because you never know what somebody might have done before you. Don't take anyones word for it professional or not.

The best news is my company just started a project in Grand Junction so I will get it to you free of shipping. You maybe out the cost of a little cleaner and some paint. Beats buying it!!!!! I will PM you.

Overlander63 thanks. I will think about it. The Carefree has the best fit to the Airstreams. I have both and both need parts. I am not impressed with the Z type and how it looks. I may have to maverick it and go to the market with my own design.
