I am looking for Airstream dealers in Texas that do exterior recoating.
Any recommendations will be appreciated.

Rivet Maybe ...


I lifted this information from the classifieds of the Airstream web site about 6 months ago. It was simply an advertisment, not sponsered by Airstream.

I cannot vouch for them and only provide this information as a courtesy. This is not a recommendation - only information I read.

airstream polishing
Location: kingsbury,tx near san antonio
Description: I polish airstreams to a mirror finish.
Contact Phone Number: 830-639-4393

I don't believe this is a dealer.

Due to the specialized knowledge, and tools/equipment required, reapplying the Plasticoat is a pocedure offered by very few dealers. The three most often cited sources include:

P & S Trailer Service in Helena, OH -- An Authorized Airstream Service Center
Walts RV in Ocala, FL -- An Authorized Airstream Service Center

Recently, there has also been discussion about a vendor in either Washington state or Oregon who re-Plasticoats coaches, and was one of the principals in the development of the Plasticoat process.

I traveled to Ohio to have the Ruths (P & S Trailer Service) polish and re-Plasticot my Overlander a little more than three years ago. The results were fantastic and the finish still looks as good as the day I towed it home after the processing.

Good luck with your search!


P.S.: Your coach is from a period near the point where Airstream began utilizing pre-coated aluminum from Alcoa -- I don't know what options are available for re-coating if your coach happens to be one with the Alcoa coating. I think that the switch was quite a bit later in the 1990s, but am not certain.
