Cool

I think we are off to a good start. Now we just have to find the perfect blue color of canvas. That should be the easy part. So what to do....awning first or curtains.

By the way curiousity struck and we had to visit your website and we did the long story version. Your quest sounds much like ours, we bought from a guy who had no idea about anything on his airstream. When I have our web page ready you can read all about it.

HI I'm new to this forum but have read about stake awnings. My trailer did not come with an awning rail. Can someone tell me where you get these?

The awning rail itself is available at most RV Service Centers. You may have to search a little bit more for Aluminum vs white/black/chrome...but it's out there. Here's a wbesite that'll help you realize what you are looking for: Aluminum Awning Rail

Awning help needed

Hello all,

I am trying to figure out what the awning frame looked like on my 1963 Bambi so that a replacement could be fabricated. I have searched the pictures and can find nothing like this.


Pic-1 shows the left frame mount and the fabric channel. Pic-2 shows the top frame mount above the channel (below the fabric??) and Pic-3 shows the side view of the coach with the entire curved channel showing.

I would appreciate any pictures or explanation of how the assembly worked and what it looked like. Thanks, Paul

Well, I think I've finally put this "vintage awning look" to rest...at least for Maxwell! I finished up my window awnings this weekend at the DenCO Maintenance Rally. The individual window awnings match the main awning...I ordered extra fabric and binding tape with the awning. They have corner pockets on the bottom edge and snaps at the top. We riveted the snaps to the frame, which of course wouldn't work with '66-'68 Corning glass style windows, but it works great on our '64 even in a stiff wind.

Thumbs up

I love these vintage type awnings, since I don't have any awning I think I'll give a try.


This is an old thread (May '05) are there any updates?

Shari, did you get the Sunbrella chairs from Zip-Dee or other? Our Airstream didn't come with them and I'd like to get some for our "patio" but the Zip-Dees cost more than I am willing to pay.

Thumbs up Still love it!

The only update I can provide regarding my awning is in posts #119 & 122 of this thread and on our website.

Also, Vintage Trailer Supply now offers similar awnings. I've seen several and they are very nice. They are limited in color (red, yellow, green & blue)selection though...so I would still get a repalcement (if/when needed) from TCT&A so I could pick from the full line of Sunbrella colors.

I ordered them directly from ZipDee. They are available in any Sunbrella fabric (call them & talk to a "real person") ~ Airstream only offers limited patterns that match their awnings.

cant decide

I had convinced myself to order a Zipdee, but then I started thinking vintage again. I think I can live with the set up issue, but there are a couple things I am wondering about. First, How do they do with rain? Is the door blocked by the awning? Do they do ok with the wind?
