which water filler neck?

I am doing a almost complete redmodelling of a 1972 Tradewind. Currently I am looking for a new fresh water filler neck, if possible with a kind of funnel. The only thing I can find are (ugly looking) white plastic filler necks? Any suggetion what to use on an Airstream?

Hi there I'm not sure if this is the part you're referring to but this is something a few have used in their streams with success:

or variations on that idea from marine suppliers. I just ordered one because I like the idea that it's more secure and has a lock of sorts.... not high security but could avoid some pranks and keeps the drinking water supply cleaner. maybe that's just me being paranoid though haha! hope this helps

Keep on truckin!

Here is what I just did. I'm going to modify it a bit and put a small marine vent next to the filler. You can also vent it down internally into the sink drain. I saw fittings in Lowes today that could do just that too.

A little paranoia goes along way. ;-)
