Newbie needs help! =)

Hi all! We just purchased our first Airstream. It's a 1968 26ft. Overlander. I am super excited...right now. I know this is going to be a project, but it is in fairly decent shape for it's age. It does not have an awning though. Can someone tell me the best place to purchase one? I need the hardware too. Thanks for your help!

If you want to remain original you may want to start looking to the salvage market for parts that old.
One point to start would be
We Have Your Part…*|*Colaw RV Parts and Salvage

another might be DonMar Airstream
DonMar RV - Serving SC & NC for 30 Years. Sumter, Florence, Columbia, Myrtle Beach, Charleston SC, RV dealer, used, pre-owned, parts, service

You might be able to adapt a newer Zip Dee to the older trailer and Zeep Dee might have the answer.

Dont know where you are located but Ive got a pair of the old ('68 and earlier?) curved Carefree awning arms that may be available. Ive seen plenty of the newer yellow label Carefree curved awning arms at Bob's RV salvage yard in High Springs, FL.
