Steve,

Contact your local Airstream dealer. The hinges are still available. Price used to be less than $100 each.

Out of interest, why do you need new hinges.? Not clear what your issue is, but I think they can come loose from the inside.

I have emailed Inland RV & Silver Trailer Supplies but have not heard back. The top hinge is worn badly on the pin and the hole. I live in Perth, Western Australia and I would like to know of any other dealers.

Both those suppliers have been in sharp decline in recent years - currently I would not trade with either of them even though I have bought a great many parts in the past

Try Out of Doors Mart (http://odmrv.com/catalog/) or Airstream directly.

The trailer hinges are the same as the motorhome just inverted so if you need a replace top hinge for a motorhome it is the same as the bottom hinge on a trailer.

See post #40 to see what to expect behind the wall panels.

http://www.airforums.com/forums/f311...s-97332-3.html

You'll have to remove the inside aluminum framework around the door; window frames, and interior panels to gain access to the hinge bolts behind.

As Martin said, the hinges are labelled for trailers, so U for Upper hinge is to be mounted on the bottom, and B for bottom on top for these to work correctly.

Like my post stated, making a 1/4" aluminum plate, drilled, tapped and vulkemed into place on the inside of the wall to secure the hinge screw bolts means you could remove hinges without having to remove inside walls in the future. Plus makes the mounting of the hinges that much more secure.

Cheers

Thank you both for your help. I have never been able to deal with Airstream themselves But will try both sites. It is good to know the trailer hinges will fit.

Thank you both
