Argosy Interior Trim

Does anyone know where I can purchase the small plastic trim that fits over the edge of the interior wall panels? It is a "U" configuration and just slips over the thin edges of the panels where they come together.

You can get this at home centers. But if you want to match your color of the Argosy you can get this at Airstream, Jackson Center. Dealerships should be able to order it. We got ours direct from JC.

The stuff that fits over the edge of the sheet metal interior? It's called J-trim. The cheapest source I've found is Oasis RV in Tucson. I forget the price but it isn't much. Measure how much you want first and add a couple feet or more allowance. It doesn't stretch or contract when you apply it. Call their parts dept at 1-800-658-5863. You can order parts on their webpage but I'm sure it'll be a lot of back and forth. They are very knowledgeable over the phone and I think I had my J-trim in about 3 days from just one phone call.

You will have to drill out all the rivets at the edge of any interior sheet. Medium length 1/8" pop rivets do the job -- white if you can find them. To make the curve along the front windows you should snip the longer hidden edge about every inch or so.

Have fun -- it's quite an improvement!

Wonder if anyone could/would post a pic of this stuff? I think it is what is at the bottom inside edge of our windows as well as along the walls? Ours has become very brittle and cracked off, but want to make sure I am looking at what is referred to above? Thanks.

The part that goes under the sheet - use sidecutters to cut the long edge ever inch or two when you go around curves. Cut out a small wedge if it's a concave curve.

Ok, I'm 99% sure that the "j" trim is it! I tried going to Oasis website, but it was shut down. Might try to call them a bit later to verify. We did pull out a small piece from around our window (very brittle & crumbled) which looked like the pic posted by Dan, before it fell apart.

Squid - we have not replaced this yet. We were looking to purchase locally, but have not found the neutral color needed. Looks like ordering from Oasis, as Bob recommends, is probably best bet. We are doing some remodel in our house kitchen right now, so funds are funneling there. May try to get to the replacement of this trim in the Spring - which is coming on early here in Colorado (we had 70's record breaker yesterday!!) Does not appear to be a difficult job, just maybe slow & steady. OUR BIG EXPENSE WILL BE THE AXEL, which I keep trying to save up for, but something else keeps coming & taking the money (could that be the govt!!????????, uh,oh, better not go there!)
