Ceiling?

We just picked up our '75 Tradewind last week. Noticed the ceiling over the gaucho is missing? It looks like it was removed to repair a dent near the roof. Does anyone have suggestions how to replace this or what material can be used. I assume it is the same as the rear bath????

It is similar to the rear the rear bath. You should keep your eye out for a trailer being parted out, all lengths should be the same, and many years will work for you as well.

balrgn,

I notice you have an InteliTXT link embedded in your intitial posting above in the word "used" at the end of the fourth sentence. Did you sneak in a hyperlink ad on your own, or is this being randomly generated on behalf of the forum administrator?

IMHO, I rather see that "Feature deep six'd".
It's one thing to have URL's to select at choice on the site but, to inject [urls]into my comments changes the whole nature of it's meaning..

I would vote "NO" for the extension of this feature~

I noticed you did not answer the question?
By the way I found you can turn off the option, and made the edit.

My appologies. I thought the question had been answered. It sounds like you are describing the plastic interior endcap. These are available for some year models at Inland RV; I've no idea if yours is available or not.

I think that yours may be fiberglass. Later models were abs plastic. Either way, they are one piece, and will (surprisingly) go in through the door. It will be difficult to find a used one, but perhaps not impossible.

One could rivet sections of flat aluminum in the manner of the older 13 segment Airstreams. Or I suppose you could take out the one in the bathroom and use it to make a mold to have a fiberglass one made.

I wish I could offer better suggestions.

And how do you turn off the Intellitxt link?

Mark

Smile Ceiling....

Thanx, I'll keep an eye out for a used one. I might try to fiberglass it, however that would make it impossible to get at the roof section. Another thought was a stiff fabric.

When you post, at the bottom, Additional Options, uncheck "Automatically parse links in text"

Some older model headliners are still available.

Headliners are over the front and rear windows only.
