Panoramic interior curved plastic trim

Has anyone found a replacement for the compound curved plastic piece that trims out the panoramic windows on Airstream trailers/classic motorhomes and Argosy's. They are screwed in, top and bottom; mine are cracked or cracking where the screws are.

Will a modern day trailers panoramic trim piece work, albeit it would be a different finish? I wonder if any vendor makes replacements.

Cheers

I replaced the cracked off white trim in our 91 trailer with new grey trim from Airstream, was in the $200+ range if i remember right.
There is narrow body and wide body to think of with the center window trim but I think the side is the same in all the trailers anyway.

We tried the modern grey trim on Bella but it didn't fit.

Ended up just using the standard panel edge/U trim and rivet the inner skin to the frame.

Have you considered repairing the cracks with JB weld then paint to match. I've had great success using this method on my classic.

How bad of a job was it to replace the one piece header? I have been thinking about doing this in our '89 Exxcella for some time. I have the replacement parts purchased by a PO. Did you replace the rear header also?
