1961 Airstream Astrodome Cover

Greetings Bobbyo954!

What you have is a vent that Airstream called the Astrodome. It measures approximately 14" x 26". There are at least two sources for replacement covers of which I am aware: Inland RV as this link --- Vintage Trailer Supply at this link. There may be others but these two immediately come to mind. I purchased one of the covers from Inland about 18 years ago and I am looking at replacing it in the very near future as the material used at that time is weather cracking (it is not opaque as the current model appears to be).

Good luck with your investigation!

My Astradome from VTS is 5 years old now and holding up very well.

If you also need the smaller 14"x14" cover, PM me. I have one that's yours for the cost of shipping.
