Airconditional Cowl/Cover

We have a 28' 2000 Airstream Excella. I was washing the roof and bumped into the air-conditioner and the darn thing cracked. When I tried to fix it the darn thing continued to crack and a couple pieces fell off. Thanks to Gorilla Tape the hole and cracks are fixed but it looks terrible. Does anyone know where to go to find a replacement cover? Hate to show up at the International rally looking like my Airstream is held together with duct tape.

Duct tape is quite acceptable. MacGuyver University has it on their logo...

Sorry to hear of your problems I'm sure somebody will post where to get another cover.

On the other hand hopefully duct tape is not the entrance standard... for if it is we would never be able to go anywhere. We are held together by duct tape, that and the shiny HVAC tape plus soon to add the clear 3m.

So nice of them to make the silver duct tape in that matte silver oxidized look :-)

Check with these guys. They have been very helpful on a project I'm working on. So far, they've come through and provide a ton of technical info.
Give them a call.
