FrankR has listed Colaw Salvage as a source for Airstream parts. He put a picture on the forum months ago showing a long line of wrecked Airstreams but do not know if this is the same place.

Junk Yard
Dave, you're so right..Isn't that the place in MO?
I do believe they're even on the web.

They are on the web. I looked up their site a few months back but did not see anything at that time listed as coming out of an Airstream. I was tempted to call just to get an idea of what models of Airstreams they had on their property.

Cowlaw's has about a dozen salvage Airstreams. Most are getting pretty picked over, but there are still a lot of good parts here and there.

I am by Colaw's almost every week, and I seldom fail to get something. They are running pretty short of "window closer thingamajigs" as I have bought most of them! They only sell them off broken windows, and it is amazing how stout those windows are.

Interesting fact: most wrecked Airstreams are roll-overs. I guess once they go over they tend to just keep going.

ref:URL link
I believe this is the correct link to the website:
it looks like the words"rv" was left out.
But, I didn't see any references to the airstreams...??
