Catherine Long and Glen Dickerson write: Hi
guys, please tell Andy we had such a great time meeting him and all of you while
we were out there. We're home now and starting to work on the "baby". Andy,
your help will be invaluable and we just loved the time spent and the massive
amount of information you imparted to us. Thank you so much for your help and
we're ready to tackle this puppy!! Love to all and many thanks, Catherine Long
and Glen Dickerson
Faith Davis writes: Andy, thanks a million for once again for your sound advice on our ' 75 trailer repairs.
This time it was window repair and axles. We really appreciate you taking the
time to help us. You're awesome!
Chris Keysor writes: I am sure this has been said elsewhere on (Airstream Forums), but ... when someone
really contributes to someone else's passion they must be recognized. Inland
RV & Andy - I have bought several items from Inland RV and I just need to say
what an asset they are to Airstream owners! Not only do I see Andy's contribution
to the forums on this site, but every item I have purchased from Inland has
been reasonably priced and the highest quality. I am renovating a 1978 Airstream
(just vintage) and have ordered parts from fans and gaskets to rock guards for
my front window. AND EVERY PART I HAVE ORDERED HAS BEEN OF EXTREMELY HIGH QUALITY!
Please support Andy with your business so he can continue serving us.

Alden Stevens writes: Dear
Andy, I recently ordered replacement seals and window channel for my 1977 Argosy
motorhome. I just wanted to thank you for catching my measurement errors in
my order and correcting them. I received the order recently, and am in the midst
of the replacement now. I am so grateful you are out there. I look forward to
a long association!

I've owned my 1969 Overlander a year and a half after lurking over for more
than two years to learn what I could. Your postings are like Gerald J's ...
fascinating! Sometimes they are over my head, but mostly brilliant. Mostly brilliant.
You have saved me mucho hours & dollars in this rust-o-ration project and now
I have a unit to brag on. I can't thank you enough. If you ever have a question
a Counseling / Psychology / PhD might answer for you, fire away (I do need to
say I am not licensed in California). Keep the faith Andy, you're one of the

Thanks Andy, for your response and ALL of your help!! I am a Big ANDY FAN! I
think your great and let anyone who says differently know it! Keep up the fantastic
work! Your Loyal Customer, Dave
Elliott writes: I
have purchased parts from you as well as enjoyed your wisdom over the past 2
years . When we purchased our 1965 Caravel I can't remember how we ran across
Inland RV, but after a phone call and talking to you on the phone, I was hooked.
Thanks for all the good you have done!

and I have come to the conclusion that we appreciate all the input that Andy
gives freely and willingly. Andy's advice has been a huge help to us as we slowly,
but surely, get our silver beauty ready for next season. If we lived close to
the West Coast we would gladly drag our Airstream to Inland RV and trust Andy
100%. THANK YOU ANDY!
just wanted to add my thanks and support to the many others from the VAC list.
I appreciate your willingness to share your knowledge and experience with the
vintage community. As far as I am concerned, your direct connection to the A/S
sales and service network gives you more, not less credibility. I live on the
East coast and am unlikely to pull my '77 Tradewind into the Inland RV lot any
time soon. If I were in your area and needed service, your participation on
the list is something would motivate me to drive out of my way to get there.
Evans of Evans, Georgia writes: I just want to comment that I have
talked to you and you have been so helpful in answering all my questions. The
windows you have were not as expensive as I expected, in fact they were very
reasonable! Thanks for responding.

writes: I purchased new covers from Inland RV for the fixtures in
my 1964 Overlander and couldn't be happier. The new lenses/shades are made of
superior materials when compared to the originals and are a very brilliant white
color. I have had my lenses/shades for almost a year, and I even purchased a
couple of spares for future insurance.
owner of a '74 Argosy, writes: Re: Tire diameters, load, size, and
balancing: Per Andy's suggestion
based on his years of experience and info from the rim manufacturer, I went
with load range C rather than D. Don't want a split rim and possible damage
at this point in the restoration. Apparently you can drop down a range, but
not go up in range. Per usual, Andy's advice helps me work smarter, but of course,
I had to do it my way first. Thanks again, Andy!
from the "VAC" list, writes: No slam on engineers, but
I have received good solid information and quality parts from Andy at Inland
RV. I also believe that if your in a business for 25 plus years you see all
the problems that the factory doesn't. Andy thanks for all the great posts and
the timely delivered parts.
Siiteri, of Austin, Texas, writes: While
on a recent road trip the entry door lock failed. Luckily, it failed while the
coach was parked. First, I spent twenty minutes calling RV centers and locksmiths
in southern Wisconsin (whom both advised me to call each other). Secondly, I
obtained the name off the lock and called the manufacturer of the lock. The
manufacturer advised me that they no longer made the set, but that it was available
from an Asian company. They did not sell direct anyway, but said it was available
through Airstream Parts and Service. Next I called Airsteam and found out that
they do not sell parts direct to end users either, and they informed me that
the lock set was availble from an Airstream dealer that deals with vintage coaches,
one of which was Inland RV. So, had I done what I first had thought of doing,
calling Andy R. at Inland, I would have been able to resume my vacation more
quickly. Inland is in southern CA and I dropped off my coach there in December
2001. I was pleased with the service and impressed with the knowledge of the
staff. So if you need some obscure piece for your vintage rig, I recommend inlandrv.com!

had a trailer tire tread separation during our vacation (Rt. Rear) that smashed
in the right, rear curved panel behind the wheel well on our 92 25' Excella.
Inland RV (Corona, CA) did an excellent job repairing this damage in only 2
days.....and even took the trailer in after a short call on a busy Monday morning
(last), done by Wednesday noon. Plus he replaced the magnets on the brakes which
were very worn, while doing a wheel balancing. Check out their website. They
have listed it elsewhere in this forum . . . probably under the repair and/or

Enjoyed reading the articles, didn't know we were in the company of movie stars
with our airstreams. Where
can I get a model like the one you are holding on your home site?

It is a pleasant surprise to find a company such as yours that has the access
to Airstream parts. I am planning to begin fixing up my trailer. Your prices
and expertice will be a tremendous help. Thanks, Rich.
Davis, owner of a '75 Sovereign writes:
Hi Andy. Thanks for offering to look at pictures of my husbands little mess
he had started with the sub floor in our ' 75 Airstream. Our digital camera
seems to be on the blink. I dropped it and now it doesn't work. However, I wanted
to tell you that my husband had just cut the section of wood that he was planning
on replacing and had not really attempted to throughly pull it out. Thanks to
your advice yesterday, today he put the screws back in and just repaired the
cut that he had made. He is in the process of sealing the entire outside of
the trailer with Vulkem and Parr-bond. Thanks again for being so willing to
look at pictures and offer your expertise.
McCoy of Milford, Ct. writes:
Andy, I just wanted to take a minute to thank you for the time that you spent
on the phone yesterday helping with my airstream. You were very helpful.
Stanley of Sugarland, Texas: This
is the greatest site I've ran across yet. You have parts I thought I'd never
find. As soon as I get off work and home I'm making a list. You'll be hearing
from me soon. Thank you in advance!
Allen writes: Greetings
Andy! Thanks for the confirmation. I can now contact the contractor and reassure
him that the material is indeed fiberglass with a gel coat. As a side note,
all of the restoration supplies I have purchased from your store have been excellent!
The parts have included the ceiling light fixture shades, and the large astro
vent cover and operators in living room.
Townley-McGaughey writes: Hi
Andy, I was a vintage airstream and I was searching for some parts and ideas.
I just wanted you to know how much I enjoyed looking over your site. Mine is
a '64 Land Yaght and
has min. dents but looks so dull. Where can I go to have it polished or should
I paint it? Everything needs to be redone and I am on a budget, but I just couldn't
resist it even if the timing was wrong. I will be buying some parts from you
soon, just wish it could be more, but I will do all I can. Thanks for a great
resource and neat site!
S. Cain, DVM of Moreno Valley, California writes:
I am so thrilled to find this site and I am local so I will be calling shortly,
but thanks in advance for specializing in Airstream renewal. Maybe someday I
will have the money for you to renovate this trailer to match all my needs ...
for now it's a little at a time.
Kleven of Simi Valley, California writes: I'm a new owner of an '81

come highly recommeded for parts and service.

I am so glad that there is someone out there that is making it possible for
us to keep our Airstreams on the road! Thanks again!
Gregoire of Cortland, NY writes: Hi Andy Wanted to let you know the
help you gave and the parts I bought from helped me put my 64 back in service
and my family thanks you.
Brownfield of Davison, Michigan writes: It's nice to find this site,
you fill a gap between airstream clubs and high end custom shops, the kind that
want major $$$$ for info that i can find on my own.
E. Pastroies of McKeesport, PA writes: A few years ago, my wife and
I decided to find a seasonal campsite ,not so very far away. We were told by
some acquaintances about a privately owned camp in Ohio. So we ventured that
way, and low and behold purchased a small camper on site. Not satisfed with
this by the end of the season we found out about a camper that was being sold
in the "holding pen" if you will. I went to look at it and there it was a 1967
airstream, full of clutter and clothes, and who knows what else,but I could
visualize past that. I took my wife to see this beauty(I thought) and she was
livid. She called it everything (in good terms) but what it was. Well, I am
now the owner of that airstream and after we cleaned it found out that almost
all if not all major items were very current and functional. Now my wife is
decorating it (and you know everything has too match) and finding it very unique.
MacDonald of Malden, Mass. writes: I got a hold of you folks around
last Christmas looking for info on how to repair the walls where they attach
to the skin on the Argosy and Andy said he'd help in any way he could...I could
not have hoped for a better response...project not started yet I'll keep in
Trask of Monmouth, Oregon writes: Great site! I'm interested in restoring
my 1957 to its original condition and appearance, as practical, to go along
with my 1950's car collection.
