We're always on the lookout for AirStream Slide-Outs (S/O's)...not many of us owners out there.
See you've got a 2005 30' Classic S/O...very nice! Glad to hear that you're working through little issues as we all do. I'm no help on material or sources for stripes...Tim A. has got some ideas for you.
Stop on by the Slide-Out Society Owners (S/OS) thread and sign-up for a S/OS #...no cost, obligations etc...just own a AirStream S/O. You're welcome to join us.
Here's the last page of the thread:
All the best!
