Shock info for 1996 Excella 25' tandom wheel

Can anyone tell me what shocks I need to get for this trailer. I am hoping I can go to a local auto parts house and get them.

Thanks
Steve

The mounting position will dictate the shock.

Are they mounted more or less horizontal. (Parallel with the ground) If so an Airstream dealer is your only source.

Are they mounted more or less vertical. (pointing up and down) If so this application can be had at many different places.

My guess is you have the first type.

The shocks are "horizontal shocks".

They are specially made for Airstream, and cannot be purchased from anyone except an Airstream dealer.

Those special shocks are very reasonable in price.

A parts stocking Airstream dealer should be able to help you.
