Any special kind of Airstream Repair, cosmetic or mechanical....

Hi All, just picked up my "Pearl" from C & G Trailer in Bellflower, CA...got to tell you, Rod is a great guy....highly under appreciated...wow..he took in a complete amateur (me, not the trailer) and managed to get get both of us in working order! From trim to tires, and plumbing to windows...if you can get to Southern CA, he and his wife are there for you..try to give him advanced notice......several weeks if not a few months.....I guarantee you will be happy! You should see how nice my new toilet is and how well and with imagination.. it is finally done correctly!

C&G is the best out here on the west coast. I am fortunate enough that I live just down the road from them (10 miles). Rod is just super! Fair and honest and great quality work. Price is right too!

You don't have to tell me about C&G.

Took mine down there for warranty work. All work was A-1 and Rod is a heck of nice man. Very patient and knowledgable. His workers are skilled craftsmen too.

Of course not! I too am new to this...it's enough to figure out how to back up let alone post pictures! However, I did not have a complete cosmetic makeover, I was concerned about safety first, convenience second and fashion last. So, in that order, Rod was very important....from what I have gleened, you need to start outside in....inside out...in other words...start with the electrical, plumbing, brakes, shocks ect... then onto the floor is next, then refinishing cabinettes etc.....there is an order depending on how far you want to take it. Good luck! a 56! Wow.....do you have pics?
