Front banana panels for 310 Classic.
 
is it realistic to think I'll find a supply of the Front banana for a 310 Classic Motorhome or are we all now down to repair only?

Oh and just to complicate matters on such a large an unusually shaped object, I'm in England ...... (although could ship to a US address for forwarding).

have sent an email (and tried calling) Airstream Supply without success. Anyone recommend any other suppliers / source??

thanks all

cheers

Inland RV has them but getting them overseas will be fun. https://inlandrv.com/product-category/motor-home/

Hey,
You know, you could make them yourself for about 75.00 used. Make a concrete form, and lay down some fiberglass mesh. Make it about a1/4 inch thick, and your good to go. They're pretty pricey, for what they are. I may do just that, come winter. My back wraps are broken, right on the top edge. All there, just split. I tried heat gluing them. That made them more brittle. So for now, gorilla tape. Good luck DJ

I believe Inland RV got the molds after Airstream threw them out, and are now re-creating in fiberglass rather than ABS.

The last ones I got from Airstream Supply were actually for the post-92 model with the chin spoiler and fog lights, as being used on Peanut's thread. It's not an easy change - ask Ernie!

MEK/ABS granules and repair yourself providing you have the remains of the originals.

Or you could build in alumin(i)um as Keyair is doing.

Add fiberglass mat in the mix for more strength to the repair.

Thanks guys for both supplier and suggestions. Good to know I can get them but as Smartstream says, getting them to UK will be fun and costly.
As mine are intact but cracked and brittle, I will see if I can create a replica first out of fibreglass.
If that doesn't work I'll be onto InlandRV. in Winter.

Thanks all again, really helpful

cheers
