Look for the heavy Bambi...

So THAT'S what happened to Jimmy Hoffa..... I'll be looking out for that Airstream Classic with a heavy side!

Question help, help, help!!!

Hi Marc - I would assume our 78 Argosy has the same wall composition as your Argosy (vinyl covered aluminum), but our PO painted our inside walls a light yellow gold, so hard to tell what they are and I can tell that he tried to repair the cracks both in the front dome (a small crack) and in the bath (shower) area which runs horizontally along a plastic strip of some kind till it hits the opposing wall. Would vinyl crack like plastic? These have reopened since we took our trip to Utah (vibration, I'm sure). Maybe Andy has some insight into what our 78 Argosy walls are? Vinyl clad or plastic? And can they be replaced? Inquiring (and confused) minds want to know. Leigh

Walls are vinyclad aluminum.

The headliners are plastic.

Headliners crack from very high heat as well as vibration.

In either case, headliners can be repaired, and then they usually must be painted.

Stop drilling them, doesn't help anything (there is always the exception).

If the cracks are from vibration, then balancing the running gear will stop the problem from returning.
