20-footers

Plumbers have sweep ells and close ells, IIRC.

Widest range of weird parts is in black ABS plastic for sewer lines, BTW.

Has anyone out there used vehiclelight.com ? I need a new tail light and can't seem to get a response from the closest dealer so am looking on line. The reviews for the other site that that I found the lights on was pretty bad, but no reviews on this supplier so wonder if anyone has used them.

Thanks
Jerry

Not sure which AS dealer you used, but I would try Colonial AS in NJ. They can ship it to you. Low probability you can get an AS part from a generic FV parts distributor IMO.

Thanks for the help. I actually found one at a local CarQuest auto parts store. While not an exact match, it fits great and everything plugs in just fine and is far less than the $85 quoted from the local dealer.

Jerry, curious whether you considered that using a less expensive non-Airstream part might reduce the value of your trailer by more than what you saved in the cost of the part?

A careful buyer with a good eye -- or one who asks if you have ever used non-AS parts -- may assume that you took other short-cuts IMO.

Could this savings be a false economy?

Thanks,

Peter

May be the case, but if they have that good an eye they will recognize that he trailer has no leaks and has been regularly maintained. Also not sure it is that much different from changing a stock Fantastic fan to another brand or changing out the refrigerator to another brand. I suspect we almost all make some non Airstream changes to our trailers in order to make them more workable for us. The only real difference in the lights is the number of LEDs, the brightness is the same just a different LED pattern even uses the same rubber gasket to seal the light. Still find $85.00 plus shipping for a taillight a bit extreme. If I need to change it later in order to sell I will worry about it then. Until that time the extra $60.00 buys more fun on the road or at least a couple of bottles of wine.

I do appreciate your input.

Jerry
