Rivets

I'm looking to purchase a selection of rivets from Amazon or other supply. Anyone know of a listing of rivets used in a 2021 FB22?

Now I'm trying to figure out how to delete this post because I found an answer.

For anyone else that comes along with the same question, the owner's manual should have a list of the rivet types for different applications on your trailer.

You would need to contact a moderator to delete a post but I wouldn't worry about it. You can edit a post until you log out but not after returning.

I have a 2015 FC but rivets are probably similar across the trailer sizes, I think there are 2 different sizes you want to have in your arsenal, 5/32" an 3/16" (olympic rivets). I was a little reluctant to get the rivets off Amazon, a little concerned about quality of material, and quality control generally, so I got my rivets from Vintage Trailer Supply. I probably paid a bit of a premium but I feel better about the product from them. I did get my rivet gun (hand tool) off Amazon, I like it, it works well and has good flexibility (the head can rotate to get into more difficult placements). The price is up a little right now on the tool, I got mine for about $50 last winter.

Yes, I found a list of rivets in the parts book for my trailer (2019 Sport). Some have a non-Airstream part number which can be used to look up the specs for the rivet. Found an article (Airstream Supply Company?) that generally explains what type rivet is used where. My parts book just lists the rivets, not where they are used. 19 different types, mostly 1/8” diameter with various grip ranges, some stainless steel, some aluminum.

My owners manual only showed the rivets used - 7 of them. Thanks for the k do and links. Airstream Supply seems out of the ones I need. I check out the article one of you posted, there is a depth gauge that looks interesting. Thanks, Mark
