Bumper End Caps

I thought I remember reading somewhere that AS will be adding a bumper end cap to all 2016 models and that the cap would be available as an aftermarket product.

Can anyone confirm this? And if so has anyone been able to acquire said bumper caps?

Thanks!

Hans someone reported that AS was selling them at the WBCCI International Rally. Call the AS store and see if they have them available.

I'd be interested in knowing about those also. I saw some in a photo here on the Forums, and thought that they looked pretty cool.

I just looked on Colonial's Website, and all of the 2016s have these rear bumper ends.

The bumper end caps along with aluminum threshold end caps are available from Airstream. Since these are exclusive Airstream parts they must be ordered thru a authorized Airstream dealer or purchased in person at JC. Picked some up when I was there in May. Price of the bumper end caps was around 3 bucks ea and the threshold end caps around 65 cents ea.

I just ordered the end caps from Colonial Airstream, $3.02 each plus shipping. The parts manager is Brian Hawtin, Phone 732-367-4499.

They do not have them in stock and must order from JC. Brian estimates 10 to 14 days for delivery.

Thanks.

Starting with the 2013's AS replaced the wooden threshold with an extruded/hollow aluminum threshold. Both ends on the aluminum are open, and end caps make sense to me.

That said, I liked the wooden threshold in our 2011 23 a lot better than the aluminum in our 2013.

I received the end caps I ordered from Colonial. Easy to install and knowing it might save a scraped shin, it was a good addition.

Looks like a good idea...I have a bad habit of hitting shins and knees on low parts like that

I know this is a old thread but..still confused on the" aluminum threshold endcaps." Where are these located on the floor? Any photos? Ive put in a call to order the rubber bumper encaps. Also how do you remove the 27ft FB nightstands? I only see 1 set of screws underneath the countertop. It appears to be magically glued to the wall and floor.
Thank You

Thank You. I called Colonial to order the Bumper End Caps and even the parts guy had no idea what the Threshold Endcaps were!
