Who can install an AC in the Delaware/PA area?

I have a 67 Caravel and I want to take out the old armstrong and install a new Polar Cub. Do you know of anyone in the area that can do this work who has experience with older Airstreams?

Thanks

If you make it to Franks, it is all good. If not and you find someone closer to you make sure they see this picture.

I have a question, I purchased a 1968 Safari and the old Armstrong unit was replaced with a Duo Therm. The holes where the Armstrong unit was held down were filled with putty. Now there is a slight dip towards the curbside of the trailer, are the rivets that were removed and not replaced, structural in any way? I am looking for a cause for the dip on the exterior, or is the dip the effects of a rotted wood frame.

I have not taken the unit off, I am still cleaning up the exterior and removing clearcoat.

Von, Frank would be an easy drive for you as he is right off of I 95 on the east side of Baltimore and north of the tunnel (so you dont' have to worry about any propane bottles).
