Shop Rivets, Guns and Buck Riveting Kits for Vintage Trailers

Riveting is a joining technique that was originally used on large ships and other heavy machinery but was applied to the airstream and trailer industry in the ‘40s, ‘50s and ‘60s. Trailer rivets have been a design hallmark of the classic travel trailer since airstreams came on the market in the mid-century. Buck riveting is a quick way to join a large piece of aluminum to a metal frame or other piece of aluminum. It works by cinching the two materials together with a metal cuff, which is formed by pulling a bolt through a small metal sleeve, collapsing the sleeve and creating the bolt. For those looking to facilitate repairs or do a complete rebuild on an existing frame, you’ll need quality and reliable buck riveting tools to ensure your exterior holds up. If you’re looking for buck riveting supplies, we’ve got you covered. Find accessories such as rivets with different sized heads, washers and tool oil. We also have a stock of airstream rivet tools that can help you complete any riveting job, such as sheet holders, rivet cutters and even a pneumatic rivet gun. We even stock a complete Spartan buck riveting kit designed for that specific trailer model. Vintage Trailer Supply is the best place to find everything for your airstream rivet needs.
