Parts availability?

I know that the stove, refrigerator, etc. are standard RV items and that I should consult the manufacturer about any repair parts I need. What about Airstream-specific parts, though? Are they generally available from dealers? What about the factory?

The dealer for most. You wouldn't get parts for your car from the mfg would you.

You can get many parts and pieces direct from Airstream. However be prepared to pay dearly for the parts and shipping. I find it handy to have a local Airstream dealership as they have contacts and a very good relationship with Jackson Center and seem to be able to get just about anything shipped to them. Also they have been very good at getting factory modifications to new trailers that others seem to be having problems doing.

Mothership can help with many "replacement part NUMBERS". You will be referred to a "dealer" for the AS parts such as "skylight trim shrouds". Where I can substitute, sometimes I do... Such as recent issue with my Winegard antenna lift crank handle.

We called the "local" dealer and had them "drop ship" parts to us. Sometimes cheaper than a long car ride.

The parts do NOT always match... Such as the trim plate for some of the electrical switches and mismatched plumbing design/color for shower in the HEAD.
Peace and Blessings..

Many dealer have many parts, for newer trailers.

A few dealers have parts for the vintage Airstreams.

For Airstream specific parts, I usually start with these guys:

Airstream sells some parts online and in the store at the service center in Jackson Center. Otherwise, it is the dealer or places like Out of Doors Mart.

Reminds me I need a new shade for the sunroof.

It will depend on what you buy. Trailer or moho, and its age.

The older the trailer or moho, Vintage Airstream supply , Airstream supply, Inland RV, along with other suppliers will be your best bet. That being said, certain parts can be and will be a bear to find.
For example I just purchased a NOS Keeler lock set for my 310's front door. This lock set is rare to impossible to find, and is expensive to replace ($275+++). I acted like Gollum muttering "my precious" outside in the car as I unwrapped it from its protective bubble wrap.

The newer the Stream the easier to find parts but I have found the chase and acquisition of rare parts to be quite fun and exciting.......waiting for an offer to be accepted by a seller with only two locksets left, all the while praying no one buys it now out from underneath me.
