Thank you - yes that's the part. I'll call them to see if they have it in something other than "guaranteed to rust" material.

I notice in an above posted picture that the rub-rail has been added to the segment protector.
Is this necessary? Will the seg-guard not fit snug if placed over the trailers exixting front rub-rail?

Also one would have to split their existing rubrail to place it onto each seg-guard half. That would leave 6 exposed ends on the extrusions.(remember the middle section that would stay on the trailer) In the picture the cut end is closed with a stub-wedge type end filler piece. Surely those are not avaliable for the older styles of rub-rails are they?
And how many rubrail styles have there been?

Lastly I would not feel good if those snap-over fasteners were all that held such an expensive accessory as segment protectors on.

Oh and for the handy (real handy) somewhere on these forums there used to be a thread about making your own seg-guards.

I cannot recall seeing two out of fifty Airstreams that had any noticeable segment damage.
Front banana wraps dented yep probably 40 out of 50.

Someone should come up with a snap-on protector made from old carpet which could be stowed easily and used when off roading in a rock or gravel area.

Drummer,
Out of Doors Mart has belt line end caps for older trailers so I am sure Andy will also.

Segments

I had a number of dents in my front section so I also added Segment protectors. I was luck enough to find a set for sale directely from Airstream on EBAY for way below retail. There were three catches:

1-They were for a wide body (not really a big deal as they are fairly plyable and just have some extra space.
2-They were used and had (1) pre-drilled hole in them.
3-They only cover a portion of the Airstream panel. If you look at new trailers you will not that the Segment protector goes all the way to the window to protect the whole panel.

Given these three issues I thought the cost benefit was good. But if you want picture perfect you might want to consider new and Andy is great to deal with.

The rubrail is on the segment protector. Your current rubrail stays in place and the segment protector goes over it. The units are hinged on the front with a piano hinge - so they aren't going anywhere. the connectors shown just hold it back against the side body.
