Lower rock guards

What do they call the stainless steel rock guards that wrap around the front lower section I see on newer Airstreams. Are they available or will they fit on a 1976 31" Airstream.

Thanks

Don

They are called segment protectors and they can be purchased from Airstream or Out of Doors Mart. They show up on the Airstream e bay site from time to time with small blemishes but large discounts. As to weather it will fit your year I can't help.

They have them for the 70s trailers but the wrap area is brown, not silver. The factory quoted me $800 for a pair. Out-of-Doors Mart is several hundred cheaper.

If the wrap area you're seeing is brown it's protective paper covering the Stainless Steel wrap.

I meant to say the banana wrap area is a different color.

Yes the bottom of the wrap area is black to match the newer trailers when Airtstrem started painting the roll black. I don't when that started but my 1976 was not painted originally but I did paint the roll black several years ago so that will not be a problem. I am looking in to the Segment Protectors as a finishing touch to polishing and new clear coat work I just had done at Oasis RV in Tucson. Scroll down to the bottom message with the most recent pictures from the thread below.
