Question You're kidding


Airstreams are aluminum skinned, not metal.
You need to go back out and, 'hug' your Airstream once more..

I talked to service reps at North Dallas R.V., and they said they could replace curved panel in back or A/S for about $850, which seems fair, so I'll probably drag it over there, if everything else checks out, and just get it replaced.

I appreciate all the help.

I assume you're talking w/Randy @ N. Dallas RV. He really knows his stuff! They are ver honest people to work with too! I have bugged them for years now and they are always willing to share their knowledge.

I'm sure you'll be happy with their repair.

I'm getting up in the morning, and driving up to Ft. Worth--about 700 miles--hopefully to buy this A/S. The man has been very decent, honest, and friendly to me, and after looking at several other trailers, this one seems right--an '86 25' Sovereign--and he has held it for me, so I'm headed to Texas.

As a long-haul trucker, no matter how jaded or burntout from the road I felt, seeing an Airstream on the road always seemed to lift my spirits, and whenever I would be sitting in a truckstop, and I'd see one, I'd go talk to the owner, and they were always friendly people. So if you ever saw a whitebearded, tattooed old trucker, staring at your trailer, and waving, from the cab of his green Freightliner, now you know who it was :-)

Well, long day tomorrow. Thank you to all the people who gave me advice, on here, and privately.
