Rear Bumper Compartment

I have a 2020 Caravel 19cb and one of the closures on the rear bumper storage compartment broke. What are those called, where do I find them? Has anyone replaced them with something more reliable?

I cannot help you with this one, but every time I latch mine I expect it to break so I will follow this and maybe source some spares...

The search that provided me the closest match was “boat (or marine) bailer (or drain) plug”.. You can add “rubber” if you like. Most appeared to be more sturdy than the A-S type. The drawback is that most look like they are easily separated from the cover.
“Snap-Tite” might bring in some results.
Good luck!

Call the dealer for replacement under warranty

Kena7000, your 2020 should still be covered under Airstream’s 3 year warranty. Just call the dealer and email them a photo of the broken one. They can mail you a replacement if you’re not close enough to pick it up. My dealer replaced the shower door sweep seal that way.

By the way, get some silicone grease and rub it on the rubber and the lever part on the top. They’ll work smoothly and won’t break. Silicone grease is used to lube auto disc brake hardware; you can find it at any auto parts store.
