Missing Hatch Cover

Well, it was there when I started towing it home, but it's gone on Hwy 5 now. It must have just worked its way out of the channel and blown away. The dealer that sold it to me had no keys so it wasn't locked. Now I have to have a new one made. Any advice as to who should do the work or how much it's going to cost me?

Thanks in advance!

Ouch!!! I haven't lost a hatch before, but, on my old tent trailer I had a hard propane tank cover disapear on I-90. So, I bought a soft cover for it, and it blew away too.

Watch eBay. I sold a 14" X 12" compartment door just last week, complete with frame. Your door might even turn up there eventually.
These doors are not easy to fabricate. It took Airstream a long time to realize that these covers need to be hinged so they don't simply fall off.

May you camp where wind won’t hit you, where snakes won’t bite and bears won’t git you.

I thought a while back while I was surfing around that I came across a vendor that sold different hatch covers for Airstream. Vintage Trailer Supply? I know it will probably bug me until I find that. I will look up your tread if I do. Now I believe it shouldn't be 'too' difficult to reproduce another one. Look in Search. There are some posts of members making hatch doors for new hatch accesses.

You might want to try this fellow, I got a hatch cover for a 69 Overlander from him.
