I don't recall, exactly, but I think $20-$25. They look lovely.

I don't think it will, anytime soon.

I believe the letters were affected by our well-intentioned placement of a cover over our Interstate. Winds pulled the cover around, the cover moving chipped off bits of the letter. Lots of problems with the cover, overall, which we are no longer using.

I have never used a cover. This is an 8 year old unit....so I'm guessing every 8 years or so, we'll have to replace. Just not something you would expect. I don't mean to beat a dead horse, but, after having many older model Airstreams. (89 Excella, 4 different Argosy models, A Sovereign, An Ambassador, Airstream RV Cutter) We have NEVER had to deal with these picky little issues at every turn.(restores and upgrades for 30 year old units sure...but not this.) I would expect sticky tape emblems on SOB's but not Airstreams. A problem fixed...should be problem done.

First time I washed mine (two weeks ago), two letters, and some of the pin striping began to separate.

I agree with you in principle, but reality tells me that ain't gonna happen.

I'm almost of the mind to remove the damn things and put up with folks asking me what kind of trailer I have.

Point being, I don't think there are too many other coaches with the distinctive design of the AS, and the additional embellishment doesn't make it that much more functional.
