Wonder where one could find another one if this one will not work.
Yesterday before posting a reply I checked the Airstream web site for a 1996 gas Land Yacht part list, but they did not have one. The closest is a 1998 parts list at this link:
The winch for 1998 Airstream is part # 410631. I found one at www.airstreamsupply.com
, but their site is off line today. Here is a photo so you can tell if it looks the same as the one on your 1996 model.
If it looks close you might try contacting them directly. I got their contact details from Google cache:
Airstream Supply. 2651 South 600 West Salt Lake City, Ut 84115. Telephone 801-972-2400 Mon - Fri 9am - 4pm.
Edit; I also notice they were still using this same part for the spare on 2004 models, so you might be able to still get one from Airstream. My Intersate has a spare tire winch, but it is very different and has a different part number.
