Cool Broken Grill

A collision with a deer resulted in front end damage to my 1990- 34.5 Airstream Classic Motorhome. Can't locate a new grill. Can anyone help?

toaster one,
Welcome to the forum. I assume you've called Airstream in Jackson Center, OH already? Also try RichardT (member on this forum) for spare parts or Colaws Salvage in MO.

If Airstream doesn't have them anymore you'll be looking for something off a wreck.

Worst case, you could replace it with aluminum bar stock. It would not match the original but a well fabricated grill might look nice.

Welcome to the forums. Definitely give RichardT a PM. He has part off of a 280 and I believe they should be interchangeable.

I feel your pain. My 3 week old 30' Airstream Safari had a colision with a deer at 50 MPH Father's Day week end. It is now in Jackson Center getting corrective surgery. Hang in there, we aren't alone. Paula Ford stopped by JC for a tour and said an '06 Classic with the 75th anniversary packcage came in that had a deer come over the tow vehicle and go through the front wrap window and land in the leather sofa spilling its guts and blood all over the place. I consider myself lucky?
