We purchased from Home Depot in Reno. They were installed by a company from Fairfield, so your location should be OK too. HD would not warranty due to movement/vibration, but installer said we shouldn't have any problems. After over 10k in travel, no problems. We used a product similar to Corian made by Samsung, called Starion. Very happy with results.

In addition to the counter tops you will need the cabinet base strengthened or replaced and modifications to your cabinet doors, drawers, sink and plumbing. So be prepared when to talk with someone about doing the work, there is more to than just putting on a new counter top. I completed a similar project on my 1976 31' Sovereign a couple of years ago using a Corian type solid surface product that I bought form SolidSurface.com. They sells remnants and smaller sections which is good since you don't need a large piece. I installed an under mount sink, new faucet, butcher block range cover, tile back splash as well new drawers and filter system. Here are some pictures of the project. I have put a lot of miles on since then and nothing has moved or shifted.

I can't help with countertops, but I can provide the following regarding sources for replacement drapes:
  • Airstream -- With your Airstream's VIN in hand, Airstream dealers can order new drapes for your coach. While I haven't talked to anyone who has pursued this avenue, I suspect that the fabric choices will be limited to those currently being utilized in Airstream products.
  • JPA Drapes -- One of the oldest vendors for Airstream product draperies, JPA Draperies, Inc., has a reputation for providing high quality and customer satisfaction.
  • P and S Trailer Service -- Located in Helena, OH, P and S Trailer Service became known for their refinishing of Airstreams including the applications of Plasticoat. With several decades refinishing Airstreams, they have recently expanded their offerings to include refurbishment/restoration of interiors as well as exteriors. P and S Trailer Service was my choice for the exterior restoration on my Overlander and I am a satisfied customer.
  • Fowler RV Interiors -- Located in Symsonia, KY, Arlene and Henry Fowler provide high quality interior restoration work at reasonable cost. Fowler RV Interiors was my choice for the interior restoration work on both of my trailers and I am a satisfied customer.
  • Silver Threads RV Interiors -- Owned by a fellow Forums Member, Silver Threads RV Interiors has gained the reputation for high quality and reasonable prices.
Good luck with your project!

Kevin
