Airstream Parts or Graveyard

Good morning everyone! We live in Arkansas and were told that there is an Airstream Graveyard somewhere in Missouri. Does anytime know of one close to Arkansas?? Thank you for your time!

I've never seen or heard of an Airstream Graveyard in Missouri. Maybe it's a secret. However there is an RV salvage yard on the west side of the state in Carthage. Their address is 10389 Cimmaron Rd Carthage, MO 64836. Their website is We Have Your Part…*|*Colaw RV Parts and Salvage. I've not been there, but have talked to them on the phone. They don't often have Airstreams and according to the salesman I talked to, when they do get an AS, "those Airstream people come down here and take everything, even the rivets."

You mean a place where old Airstreams go off to die, like the fabled "elephant graveyard" of Africa?

Hate to disappoint, but old Airstreams NEVER die! They just lose their shine.

Uhhh...Missouri is close to Arkansas. Very close.

My guess is Colaw, as Tina referenced in post 2 in this thread, is what you're thinking of. OK, Carthage is clear over on the west side near Joplin, but I don't think there's anything closer.

However, the reason I chimed in is to tell you about the Classifieds here on the forum. Specifically, one add: Airstream Bumper - Airstream Trailer Classifieds - Airstream Trailers For Sale

It's for a bumper. Not that I think that you are looking for a bumper, the reason I brought it up is who placed the ad. jimrogers121 is in Jonesboro and buys and sells Airstreams sometimes. I bought my Excella from him a few years ago. He doesn't really post on the forums other than the occasional classified, but he and his wife are absolutely great people.

If you contact Jim, he might be able to point you in the right direction.

Oh, also, welcome to the forums.

Thank you everyone for your replies. Yes, it's the one in Carthage that we had heard about I think...and yes.. Vaughn... I do think MO IS rather close to Ark., or so I've heard... I do appreciate the tips!! Thanks... I wasn't sure that there was even a salvage yard in Missouri, or if it were just a 'fable'. ��
