Looks Great!

moosetags, It looks really great installed on Lucy! The best part is it was $10.00 cheaper thanks to their mistake! I understand the original one (w/Jackson Center) was really only supposed to be for 75th Anniversary trailers but I think they both look fine on any year AS. I am waiting for warm weather to install mine. Happy trails! Ed

That's great!

Tom, That is great! I hope you realize that there are two different things being spoken about here. 1) Factory online store for "The Airstream Co." style screen guard or "Airstream Company Jackson Center, Ohio" screen guard which requires an e-mail to jsell@airstream.com stating which of the two you want and 2) The screen guard from David Winicks' Web site (that is currently out of stock) that reads "Home Sweet Home". Winicks' site is VintageTrailering.com and as he stated here, he will be making a new run of them soon. Hope all this hasn't confused anyone. Ed

moosetags (Brian),

We agree with you. We're keeping ours for the same reasons, and it also looks like this design will be a little more durable with less metal cut away. I'll be installing mine this weekend or next. Any tips or lessons learned for the installation? What hardware did you use?

Randy-
When I first put ours on, the silver inside screen guard made the new stainless one hard to read because it was silver with silver behind. I removed the inside guard and painted the outboard side flat black. The new one shows up much better that way. See photo

Use stainless steel self tapping screws to put guard onto frame. It should fit your door perfectly. You can pre-drill the holes in the frame and use regular slot/philips head screws if you don't like self tapping, but stick with stainless steel and avoid any rust issues. Ed

Thanks Ed (BIGED52). I was thinking that was the recommendation. I use stainless hardware a lot living here in coastal Florida. Are there any electrolysis issues using stainless on aluminum?

I emailed Airstream using the email that BigEd had supplied. I wanted the one that said Jackson Center. They emailed me back saying they were out right now and to send another email next week.

I found an old, inactive thread here that answers this question.

Stainless steel screws

Randy, If you are worried about it just use aluminum screws. You will have to cut some threads into the holes in the door frame first as the aluminum screws are too soft to cut threads themselves. Being that the guard is stainless steel you may want to use a thin plastic gasket or washers between it and the aluminum door frame. Ed

Debbie and Lewis, Wow! That must tell you the power of things that are read on this forum. They (Airstream store) have sold the remaining guards out of stock to folks who have read our information here in this thread and e-mailed their requests for these screen guards. That's just crazy.... Then again when you figure that there are around 18,000+ members here that could account for lots of e-mail requests! Let us know if you are able to get one ordered next week. I will be surprised if they can get any more of the ones that say Jackson Center, Ohio as that guard design production was halted. David Winick had previously told me that he stopped making them a while ago and switched to the one that says simply "The Airstream Co." as it had less manufacturing problems. Apparently the 1st version was difficult to laser cut! Please keep us updated on this as you hear back from Airstream. There may be others interested in getting a screen guard. Thanks Again Ed

wrap-up

Thought I'd wrap up my (success) story: after last posting at the end of January, I received the "Airstream Co." version.

I was really set on having the full 'Jackson Center, Ohio' version, and called AS about it. They processed a UPS return right away, and a week later I had the one I ordered. Me: happy camper!

I finally installed the door guard:

(and took a previous poster's suggestion to paint the outward-facing inner guard a dark color)

I ended up just using AL rivets to attach the guard.

Cheers,
-jd.

We bought one of the "Jackson Center" door guards from the Airstream store when they still had them in stock. I installed it using stainless screws.. no problem. I removed the inner door guard so that the new one would show up nicely. I was a bit worried about damaging the screen (pushing a hole through it) without the inner guard, but with the new guard installed that really doesn't seem to be a problem since the screen flexes a bit when pushed and contacts the new guard well before becoming stressed.
