Airstream would have them...use the number Lynn posted. You might have to get it through a dealer, but a call to the Airstream will get you on track.

Actually, if this is for your vintage unit, I think calling Airstream or Andy from Inland might be one of the few people I'd know to call. A door on a vintage I think is shaped different than the new(er) units we were orig talking about.

Thanks to all for info.

Amazingly, I got a reply from David in less than 2 hours. He tells me that the photo on the website shows exactly what you get. They are in stock and available.

David is great guy and does great work. The one on his site is different that the one I picked up. If this is for your '72, make sure of the specs. I seem to recall the doors being different slightly and I think his are spec'd out for the newer spec'd doors....but lookin' at one of his pics, the home sweet home piece looks like it's on a vintage.....anyway, you won't be disappointed dealing with David.

Thanks - never thought they'd have them so I've never asked when calling before. Yes, have to go through Caldwell here to get any parts. Rather odd set up since
Caldwell doesn't have access to vintage parts numbers. You call the factory and get the part number - then call Caldwell and give it to them to order the part....

Thanks for the help....

Hi All
This is the guy who designed and produces the stainless steel doorguard. I stopped producing the design that reads "The Airstream Company, Jackson Center, Ohio" It was extremely diffcult to make owing to some of the detail and there were too many discards.
I revised the design to read "The Airstream Co" & I have these in stock. No Airstream dealer has these in their inventory. There were a limited amount in the Airstream store at the factory. As to their remaining inventory I am unsure. These may be easily purchased online at my website: vintage airstream and other classic travel trailers
Thank you

David Winick
ps. Thanks all for the swell comments about the door-guard

Thanks David for all the hard work on the screen door guards. They add a great touch. We picked ours up at the Airstream Store while at Jackson Center seeing our new 2007 34' SO. We took it to our dealership when we picked up our new Airstream and had the technician put it on. He was so impressed! He had never seen one of these. He remarked about how difficult it would be to make and asked what we had paid for it. We had felt it was extravagant but thought it would compliment the new 75th edition nicely. He stated that for the difficutly to make it was a good price. So thanks again for such a quality product. We will make sure you get the credit the next compliment we receive on it. They do receive compliments! Everytime we give a tour, in fact. Ours is the original...The Airstream Company, Jackson Center, Ohio.

I just ordered one from the Airstream Store on line. It was a little pricey ($89 + $10 shipping), but Lucy will really like it. It is money well spent for a happy Airstream.

Dave, thank you for your great work. We have the "Home Sweet Home" guard on our Safari and it never fails to get compliments. Makes me smile whenever I see it, too.

Man ! I don't know who you guys know.........

.....but when I called the AS Store day before yesterday at the extension posted above, they said I couldn't order any parts direct from them and had to go through a dealer.

I called Bates, 'cause they are close to where I currently am and they told me they needed my VIN # because AS said they were only selling the 75 th Anniv. guards to people who actually had that model !

Truth be told, I would really rather have the " Home Sweet Home " version.....

Guess I'm the guy who always wants what he can't have

Bummer
