AS License Plate Frame.

I seen a license plate frame that says

Airstream.. An American Legend.

Anyone know where to get one?

The only place I know of is Airstream.com and they want almost twice the money to ship it then the item is worth Some reason that fundementaly bothers me

You could try eBay or do a web search.

AS License Plate Frame not holding up well

Hello Safari Tim,

I purchased the AS license plate frame from Airstream.Com early this year. It is not holding up well, the blue paint that outlines the lettering has peeled badly. If you do find one you may want to put some type of sealer on it before you install it on your trailer, hopefully it then wouldn't peel as quickly as mine has.

I'd place a bet on Bredlo being able to get some made for us at cafepress.

What you say?

I would suggest that anyone who is considering duplicating anything with Airstreams name on, to be extremely careful.

Airstream does actively, with vigor, use all legal remedies, to stop such activities, "unless," they have Airstream's approval or have been licensed by Airstream.

Just a word of caution.

Andy

Yep, Andy's right. Safari Tim, you could possibly duck the shipping cost by checking with your local dealer. Some dealers stock that stuff. Or, maybe you know someone who's headed to Jackson Center soon?

Don't you stock this item, AS license plate frame? If Airstream makes em you would know, and if they make them are they plastic or metal?

Myboyburt - That does not sound good, that it's peeling already. What could I put on it if I got one?

rluhr- Thanks for the idea. It looks like Tin Hut is fixing me up. Thanks Tin!!

Tinsel Loaf - The one on the AS site looks like it's made out of metal. Although the one I seen in person on someones trailer was the standard black plastic with white lettering.

My wife mentioned that you can get these things made. Like a county fairs and stuff like that. Don't know what the cost would be though. Probably more than what airstream.com is charging....
