I have had excellent luck buying my Airstream unique parts from Colonial Airstream in Lakewood NJ. Prices and shipping seem ok as well.

Woodland Travel Center in Grand Rapids Michigan touts having the largest Airstream parts inventory, not including AS factory , in the U.S, current and old. They do extensive AS restoring, custom upgrades and major AS collision work. They are also the oldest AS dealer in the U.S and always have a great inventory on the lot. An impressive place with a ton of new and vintage parts. They don't do the best job advertising this but I was there yesterday picking up my AS with warranty work and they are in the works with a new web site just for their parts inventory. There parts people are very helpful. There number is (800) 968-8688 ask for parts.

Maybe they should buy some ad space here, since this is the biggest place on the 'net for Airstreams. Couldn't hurt.

BUT Shipping Cost? I keep getting HUGE boxes that are 1/2 to 1/3 full with air pouches or peanuts to fill the balance. UPS & FED-X both charge by dimensions & weight so big boxes that weigh 3 lbs. get charged like they weigh 25 lbs. That's why the high shipping charges - idiots in the shipping dept.
Granted, using excess packing material, increase the cost of shipping.

On the other hand, inadequate packaging will cause UPS and FEDEX to deny any claim for damages.

So, it's that kind of world.

Dam if you do and dam if you don't.

What would you suggest that shippers conform to?

I bought my AC unit from American RV. They had what I needed in stock. Shipping was fast and reasonable.

Our AS dealer gives a nice discount to purchasers on gadgets and supplies in its well-stocked camping department. Also a large WalMart in a resort area has a decent selection of the more basic RV stuff.

There is an RV parts & accessories store in Casa Grande AZ (1530 N Pinal Ave, Casa Grande, AZ 85122 tel: 520-421-0408). I've gone there for stuff and what he doesn't have he'll order. It's a Ma & Pa operation and I often wondered based on the paucity of customer traffic how he stays in business even though his prices are very reasonable. Then I found out that he is a vendor on Amazon (The RV Store), and when he sells directly his prices are lower.
