Just found this post and was not sure if it was to late, but I am looking for a shroud for an Armstrong A/C unit and a Suburban brand NT-20 or NT-30 furnace. Do you have either item available?

Armstrong not running

Kurt & Eve,
What is the latest on your AC situation?

I'm working on fabricating an aluminum shroud for the Armstrong unit and will have it done in a week or so. If your interested let me know and I'll keep you posted on the design and cost. I thought of replacing mine with fiberglass one but I'm more interested in durability and looks. One tree branch and the fiberglass is a goner. And I like the idea of polishing it up to match my '72 Overlander.

Sorry to take so long getting back to you. I would be interested in finding out the details on the aluminum shroud. I understand that there was only one style of Armstrong A/C unit used. Do you know if that is in fact true? Anyway let me know once you have the costs down..

Sorry to tell you there were at least 4 models of shrouds and I presume at least that number of different Armstrong A/C models.
The aftermarket different shrouds can be found pictured at Inland RV website on the parts list.

There is a data plate under the shroud on the galvanized unit. My model Armstrong is the TRH-25-14. and the shroud that I have (identified by looking at my old one and comparing to Inland's pictures) is Inland #69831, which they say is for years 76,77,78,and 79.

I do not know whether Andy has a way to ID shroud by model number or not.
But if I did not have a shroud to compare, I'd be very sure which one to order before doing so. Return would be costly and damage prone I suspect.

Probably costly, but I hope not damage prone - I checked with InlandRV the other day about a new shroud for my Armstrong unit. Shipping was $115 and the handling, apparently due to it's size, was an additional $25.

I would hope a $25 container would be good for more than one use.

I have done some reinforcing as you described, it works well.

You need to lightly sand the surface before applying the resin. The cloth should be in the smallest pieces you can handle since the spots that normally need work are compound curves and corners. You want the cloth to stay flat, not bridge, big pieces will tend to bridge in corners. Over curves the big sections are fine.

If you have holes I recommend using some blue masking tape on the outside. This will allow the resin to fill the void, and with a bit of sanding afterword offer a nice surface to repaint. Be sure to remove the tape in the first hour or so after layup.

Tom, unfortunately the $25.00 is a surcharge for oversized/overweight items, and not for a better shipping container.
This is from personal experience, Andy would just be passing along an additional fee. The box it comes in may be a little more heavy-duty, but that is just because it is bigger, and the shroud is more fragile.

That was not the way his worker explained it to me. The $115 charge handled the oversized/overweight category, and the $25 charge was to put the "bulky" item into what was apparently a specially made box. It sounded like the shrouds sit on the shelf unboxed.

I appreciate your personal experience, but that's what I was told.

I still think the total S&H charges are extreme for the price & actual weight of the particular item. But Andy is in the catbird's seat with this particular item, and I have no problem with his marketing strategy. With vintage Airstreams, "You play, you pay"
