Shower door

Thanks...
The rough opening for door in our 23D is 28". This is a factory installed door. All 23D (now called 23CB) have this door as well as the 19' Airstreams. If you remove your door including all metal framing the opening may be slightly larger. A 36" door would work fine. It just would not fully extend in your opening. In the kit it comes with you would have to trim the top and bottom rails to fit your opening. Easy to do. If you have an Airstream dealer within a reasonable distance go take a look at a 23CB.

The Nautilus door.... You would buy the 36" door of your choice and the horizontal parts "B" would be cut to fit. Download instructions to see how.

Yep, did just that and trimmed the top and bottom rails. Makes the whole trailer feel bigger and no"'door wars" between toilet and shower.

What is the deal with Airstream's shower doors?

The one in our 2017 19-footer leaks and I can't find a way to keep things dry.

And, it has come loose at the top. What the ...?

Replaced the seal on the shower door. Took maybe 5 minutes. It press fits on my 2018 Serenity 28

To answer the OP’s original question: this is a known issue with the shower door. I think Colonial Airstream sent me one for free or very cheap. Replacement takes a few minutes. It is not necessary to remove the door. Never noticed water getting outside the shower, before or after the replacement. We have a handheld shower. The idea is to get water on yourself not the door. Admittedly, we don’t use the shower foe hair washing, which might get more water around, and also do a much better job of filling your grey tank and depleting your water supply.��
Of course, some folks view their trailers as a continuing project; others just use ‘em to go camping. So I’m sure there’s all kinds of stuff that can be done, but we’re in the “camping” group. Don’t sweat this one, and don’t pay gobs of money for someone to fix it. Buy some fuel for your TV and go camping! ��

This is not about shower doors but it is about Aistream service. We needed new axles, Airstream said it would take every bit of 4 days to get it done. Bought the axles directly from Dexter and they shipped them to a local shop. 2.5 hours labor to install them, axles, brakes, bearings, spindles, the whole thing.

Easy Fix

We’ve had numerous problems with shower doors and have had to replace twice. It always starts with the shower sweeps tearing. Then the door won’t open and close properly without lifting it. The repeated lifting over time will cause additional problems and eventually, if not fixed, the door will fall off

Good news! We finally figured out the fix and it cost less than a dollar. We bought a 3/8 inch nylon lock nut and placed under the lower door hinge. This holds the door up (after the shower sweep starts tearing) and allows for smooth open/close operation without having to lift the door. And, even though the sweep is torn, there are no water leaks when showering. Wish we would have figured this out sooner: would have saved us significant $’s and tons of investigation.

Are you thinking that Airstream should stock all of the axles, brakes and bearings for all of the trailers that they have made. I would think that they would order them in from Dexter, just like you had to do.

Ordinarily I hate to add to a thread hijack, but (just as Adventure.AS probably felt the need to do) I can't let this one go .

I can confirm that Airstream also orders from Dexter. Not quite a year ago, I ordered a new axle for our 2002 19' from our local Airstream dealer. When it arrived, various labels clearly showed that it had just been ordered by Airstream from Dexter.
