airstream trailer frames rotting out

I have observed how many of the older airstream trailers have had section of their frames needing to be repaired.
Whether a trailer is old or new prehaps you might want to undercoat those vital areas .
In Ontario( Known rustproofing ) is an ideal product that will extend the life of the trailer frame as it cover the frame with a special oil under coating that constantly creeks threw out the frame areas.
Lets face it whether we live in cold or humid areas or camp near the ocean , this will protect are investment.

Bill, how right you are.

I have been using the Crown and Rust Check products on my vehicles for over 20 years now. Bought my own spray application equipement and do it myself at home. Treating the inside and outside of the Airstream frame was the first thing I did when we got her home. Cost to do that was about $5.00 worth of Crown solution. It won't restore the frame to new condition but it will prevent any futher deterioation. Crown and Rust Check are wonderful products that work!

You might like to look at this thread for a discusssion of this issue, including the use of a fiberscope to inspect the frame:
