Ha! Indeed you do.

Thanks for the tip on the new A&E's. Since I think I'm going to have to go back to roll-out, it's good to know there are options.

Edit: Wait, just saw they only fit post-68 trailers. Oh well, guess I'll have to go with ZipDee after all and perform their highly scientific "bending" trick to make it fit the contours on the 63.

I chose the A & E on my last trailer and loved it. I have had both A & E and Zip Dee, but like the A & E better. It is lighter in weight and easier for one person to put up, especially when that one person is a woman. The price was right too!

Looks awesome! I've always liked the way the supports look on these so much more than zipd.

Thanks guys, I will see if I have a pic that shows the existing mount, but I don't think so. I was suprised how small (narrow) it was. Seem to remember it was flat u shaped about 1.5 inches wide. If I can't find a pic that shows it I will have to wait until this blizzard snow is gone. We got 14" in Tulsa a couple of days ago and now we are getting 4 to 6" today, and more on Sunday. The unit is stored about 30 miles out of town.

Thanks again.

BTW - I keep wavering between OMG what have I done to This is going to be fun!

Either Zip Dee or try to locate the hardware for the older awnings, and put new fabric on it.

It's good to know that Out of Doors Mart does such nice vintage work. I'm not that impressed by the lone Virginia dealer, so next time I need something that's Airstream specific I'll head down to see y'all. Are you doing full restorations of vintage? There's a old Globetrotter that's been sitting in an alley in Virginia Beach for YEARS. I might try for her if the owner is reasonable.

And after taking a second look at the one in your picture... 'bout time for some new axles for that one isn't it?

Paula
That one will not get axles for as long as the current owner has it. It is not going to be on the road, other than to be towed the 30 or so miles to his house. His HOA covenants forbid outbuildings, but they allow a trailer "in good repair" in the back yard, as long as it is not visible from the street. So, he bought this gutted Safari, and is making a playhouse/ poolhouse out of it. Alterations are not going to destroy anything other than what is already gone or broken, so it may yet get out on the road after he is done with it.

I didn't see this question earlier, and the time for editing has expired. That's what I get for not reading all the way through, and posting right before dinner.
ODM does restorations, though most of them are partial restorations, or doing the heavy repairs so the owners of the trailers can finish them.

I plan to repair and reuse the awning that came with my Cloud. There are no ID marks on it. Hoping that Terry or anyone else can tell me if I can get the broken and missing parst. Also I plan to replace the fabric with a newer sunbrella. I will document that for those interested.

A&E on wide body Airstream...

Has anyone actually tried installing the A&E 338100D015 Main Arm for an 8500 awning on a wide body Airstream? I have talked with Dometic and they could not confirm this would work. Of course now-a-days, the person I was talking to was probably texting her friend at the same time! LOL!

I found this thread via google, and I can't see the pictures. Maybe the post is too old? I have a Dometic awning that was removed from an Argosy, and I'd like to install it on mine. I am unsure of what fasteners to use to attach the hardware to the body.

Mine uses a combination of screws and rivets.
