Shower stall repair

Our shower door got loose during a recent trip and punctured an upper corner of the fiberglass shower stall. I bought fiberglass repair material to fill the hole, but have no idea how to obtain or apply gelcoat or to match the tannish color of the existing material. Any ideas?

I don't know the answer to your question, but I have one myself. Is your shower fiberglass? Certainly the older ones are all ABS plastic, I thought the new ones were as well.

Fiberglas or ABS

Older units ('59) had fiberglas shower pan and black water tank.

I have got to remember to be more specific when I refer to "older" Airstreams. I tend to think in terms of newer - say the advent of the widebodies, and older - like mine, you know, from the 80's. I keep forgetting that there is an entire world of Airstreams out there going back decades beyond that.

Anyway, I am pretty sure that the showers from the 80's into the 90's were all abs plastic. The model in question is a '98, and I was wondering if AS had gone back to fiberglass somehow.

After reading of the possiblity that the shower in our '97 Airstream Excella trailer was ABS, I contacted Parkview RV Center, which sold us our trailer and has proven reliable and helpful. They advise that the shower stall is fibreglass, and that Airstream supplies a repair kit for same. I have ordered one in the hope that it wil include gel coat and tinting material.
