Camping Supply Sources

Would appreciate some recommendations on internet/mail order sources for general supplies for the use, maintence and repair of our Airstream. Find selection of items at local RV dealers limited and expensive. Camping World is the only internet site I'm aware of and have wondered if there are others someone could recommend. Not looking particularly for specialized Airstream parts-just the day to day things similar to Camping World's inventory. Thanks.

There are a couple places who claim to be huge superstore/warehouse types...

One is RV SUpply Warehouse in Ohio RV Supply Warehouse

Another is RV Accessory Warehouse RV Accessories, Motorhome Parts, RV Maintenance, RV Products

Only Airstream Dealers and Authorized Service Centers can order and sell Airstream-specific parts, so those have to be ordered or picked up at a dealer..

There's no single answer for everything. Tweety's is one of the largest and best known RV catalog places and has a product line similar to Camping World's. I've had good luck with them. Adventure RV is similar, but I've experienced unexplained shipping delays and less than ideal customer service with them.

Amazon has a good deal of stuff but you have to know what you want because it's not organized very well.

Jamestown Distributors is a marine supply place I've used. West Marine is also good. The marine places have a better selection of higher quality plumbing and electrical items than most RV places.

Vintage Trailer Supply has some more general purpose things, like propane tanks and regulators, and also some odd items specific to older Airstreams.

PPL Motor Homes has an online catalog with mostly major items like furnaces, water heaters, and refrigerators.

Some local dealers are surprisingly good. The Airstream dealer in the Minneapolis area has an excellent selection of stuff on the floor and reasonable prices.

That should get you started.
