Searching for Zip Dee part
Hello everyone!

I've been searching with no luck to find a matching replacement part for my Zip Dee awning. I need a replacement head case and pin for my rear awning because my father managed to break the cast aluminum. However, I can't seem to find one that looks the same. I've found some I can purchase which would function the same, but then it would be mismatched.

I have a 1976 Airstream and so I doubt there are any new ones lying around, but I was hoping one of you might have one available or know where I can find one. (Yes, I've had an ad up on Airstream Classifieds for a while now.)

Have you checked with ZD? They have parts for older awnings.

I haven't seen this style offered by any of their dealers. I have contacted them too, but haven't heard back yet.

Why not buy two new ones

I have bought directly from zip dee. Also there's a great boneyard in Phoenix

MayaW1010, the ends look like the ones on my 86. Have you expanded your search, or are you just looking for 76?

I don't particularly care what year trailer they come from as long as they match.

MayaW1010 03-24-2017 02:41 PM

I can and if I can't find a matching one that's probably what I'll end up doing. I just figured I'd try all my resources before giving up.

I'd love more information on this boneyard, if possible.

I have a bunch of zip Dee awning parts off '70s airstreams.
Where are you?

MayaW1010 03-25-2017 07:20 PM

I'm a few miles out from Reno, NV.

I think I have a brand new pair of them.
