2018 Airstream Classic exterior rivet

Have a 2018 Classic 30' and an exterior rivet popped off on our last trip. Does anyone have the rivet replacement part? Can I use a pop rivet gun to place it and any tricks on shaving the post off without the crazy expensive Olymipic shaver? Thanks, Jason

I have Olympic rivets, and the pop rivet tool works fine. I carefully use a file to smooth down the head. Not perfect, and it is easy to put a scratch on the trailer if your grip changes. I use Captain Tolley’s Creeping Crack Cure to seal the replacement rivet.
