Question Source for a replacement rock guard

On a trip last weekend, the lower, streetside rock guard was ripped off our '96 34' Excella 1000. I found it on the side of the road 2 days later but it is not fixable.

Can any of you point me to where I might be able to find one?
Thanks,
FT

I think the lower steel panels are called "segment protectors" or sometimes "wrap protectors". "Rock guards" are the plastic covers up on the panorama windows,

No, I do not know for sure where to get one.

My go to supplier is Outdoors Mart Airstream and they list some "wrap projectors" but the list is slim and then stock inventory slim to none. Might be worth a look though. I have seen them for sale in the hallway at Jackson center and you might call them for a part number. I saw some in the Airstream store at Salem last summer.

Google for Airstream Segment Projectors brought up some classified adds of some for sale.

And it would seem like that is something most dealers should be able to order.

There was a time when I was thinking about adding them to my trailer but it is way too late now. And I was worried about the coming off and doing damage if I did not get them attached properly.

Hello Bill, Thanks for the information. We were traveling from central VA to Norris Dam State Park (West CG) when it happened. Unfortunately, the day after we got there, we got a call that my MIL had passed away so we had to return home immediately which is when I found the guard on the side of the road about 8 miles from home.

The SKU is for the part from Airstream? A dealer? Thanks again. FT

Thumbs up Update

I contacted Mark in the parts department at Out of Doors Mart in NC. He was very helpful. As it turns out, you can buy 1 guard for $495 or a pair for $795. I drove down there this afternoon and got the one for the street side. Now to install.

Bill, thanks for the suggestion.
