Tent & Trailer City initially helped to get my Airstream ready for the road by installing my breakaway switch & controller, checking my brakes & bearings and otherwise making sure my trailer was street-legal. Later in the renovation process, they successfully installed a new toilet & fridge, repaired leaky plumbing in the Galley, and performed a propane drop test. The staff is knowledgeable, friendly, and efficient. Plus they appreciate having a good ol’ vintage Airstream in the shop! Ask for Bob. Highly recommended.

I stopped by Pete’s (the Vermont branch) to have them look over my original 1969 RV refrigerator, and they ended up performing a necessary drop test and helping me secure my LP tanks. The staff was willing to help me out on relatively short notice, and were thoughtful and efficient in their work. They have two other branches in Indiana & Connecticut. Recommended.

GLASS / MIRROR REPLACEMENT
I’ve worked with Sunrise Glass for years – they’re in a neighborhood I used to live in on Manhattan’s Lower East Side. For this project, they replaced window glass and a bathroom mirror for me at reasonable prices. Their estimate was 10 business days; I got everything back in a week.

The locksmiths at J. Stein were helpful and didn’t hesitate to work on what was surely an exotic project for them. They repaired and re-keyed my 50-year-old RV locks and installed them on site in short order. Very pleasant to work with! Read more about my experience with them here.

Audrey at JPA Drapes fabricated a beautiful, sturdily constructed, full set of curtains from material that I provided. The turnaround time was fast once we worked out the construction details and payment was made. I found her to be knowledgeable about her craft and able to help come up with design solutions adapted to the idiosyncrasies of my trailer. And the price was right! I would definitely hire JPA again.
