Here's an option. I think Airstream ought to make a 4 inch port on the side or bottom of the unit. Then, you get one of those bouncy castle blowers and hook that up and run it 24/7. That puts positive pressure on the trailer so that if it does rain, any cracks constantly blow air out of the seams so there is no way that water can penetrate.

I think a cover will go a long, long way to keeping the trailer in good shape. My trailer had to have been covered, and though he was a terrible painter, the PO of my 64 seems to have painted all the metal surfaces with aluminum fence paint. I think that saved a lot of my trailer from suffering damage that others have. Maintenance is key. I use Boeshield on my tools. Keep in mind that some products work perfectly, but aren't necessarily designed for UV exposure. Por15 is a good example. That stuff is amazing as long as the sun never hits it.

I have a 70 land yacht. My uncle had it before I acquired it. I pulled the carpet, original subfloor looking new with only 2 spots, smaller than 12 inches that need replaced. the seal had broken down on one of the windows and leaked between the skin, not showing obvious damage, and only the top wood barrier, and at the door, the step had rusted out and the somehow water leaked there. I am amazed at the condition of this dream come true. My husband is a builder, and our roof leaks, lol, and the house is less than 10 years old. My only wish is I had a Bambi instead of a 30 footer, but I wouldnt trade this gift for anything. Leaks can be fixed, the memories in these babys last a lifetime

Wow! Congratulations on recognizing the GIFT!!!!

I used "Git-rot" which is a thin epoxy you inject into dry wood. It fills cavities and absorbs into wood. It cures vet hard. You can fix a lot of wood problems with it..... If it fails, then do the replacement.

The rusted parts, that's different... Gotta fix.

Anyway, wish you and "da Boyz" another lifetime of joy and memories...

Peace and blessings
