Airstream Repair near College Station TX

I am looking for a shop that can do some of the body work on my airstream in the College Station Tx area. If anyone knows of someone close I would appreciate the help!

Thanks!

A little over an hour and a half east is Top's Vintage Trailer Works in Nolanville, he's here on the forum as Top and on Facebook. I'd at least give him a call - nice guy who knows his Airstreams

Bob Jones, in south Houston.

Generally speaking, Airstream parts will cost more from a non-dealer.

You may want to purchase the parts from a dealer, and then have someone else install them.

Thanks!

Thanks for the replies and I will try to get in contact with them. I would like to do most of the restoration myself, but I may need some help for some of the body work. Thanks for the help!Heath

Take it to Lance at Top's. An honest guy who does great work.

if you need segments, make sure they are salvage and not new stock. The aluminum of the new stock is not the same as your 1968 aluminum. It cost me A LOT of MONEY to learn that.

Some 68 segments are still available.
