Seems to be well done.
Why did you keep puttiing that spot over the employees face? Jerry I think he was.
I don't like the idea of bending the face of the guard to fit. I want one made to fit.

Great video:

I think any how to video is good public service. I can see someone trying to mount the guard without removing the hinge for example.

The "face covers" are likely just their logo to protect the video as theirs..?

Yes they are pricey but so are the wing windows. If broken, they are pricy and hard to replace.
We don't have a crating fee.

Wish I saw it before I installed mine!

Only criticism is you should change the cheesy background music.

Great video - hope you do more - thanks for the service.

That is the one that is made to fit. I got the same rockguard from Airstream, and they all have to be bent to fit.

Well obviously Terry you and I read from a different dictionary.

'Made to fit' means something else to me.
That is exactly one of the reasons I am waiting on the vintage style that I 'think' I remember, but cannot yet find a good picture or example of.
One-size-fits-all may be fine in gimme caps but I want more from $350 dollar Airstream specialties.

If I was to find a used one at a price I liked, I would not expect it to fit exactly, and would adjust it as necessary.

I have learned to live with and can accept universality in many hidden parts and pieces of hardware, but appearance parts deserve better. Rockguards are definately high appearance IMHO.

Rockguard

I am still in the process of building one for my trailer. I am using a aluminum framed 50/60's something house porch awning that I have been restoring the fiberglas panel on. It is the same color as the factory original (yellow) ones I have seen on vintage trailers. The frame had to be cut down to fit the front window size for my trailer. It originally had an arched effect for the porch awning, so I kept that theme on the downsized awning for my trailer. So it will look slightly different from OEM awnings from the factory and have the slight arched panels of fiberglas on the sides of the awning. As soon as I am finished with it and am ready to install it on the trailer it will fit right where the factory one (missing except for the hinge) was mounted to my trailer. I have already purchased the (2) awning arms from Airstream as well as the new style (2) awning holddown hardware kit. It won't be a pure restore but I believe it to be a better look for my rig than the new ones that Airstream sells with the dark lexan panels. They look okay on newer trailers and are very good for trailers with wing windows but just don't have the look of the original rockguards. I am currently on the lookout for more old awnings so I can make up more retro awnings for other trailers. If anyone wants to see my awnings I will post a bunch of pictures on this thread as soon as mine is finished and mounted. I hope this gives some of you a few ideas. Happy Trails, Ed
