Black??

Does anyone know if the traditional orange strip on the 1976 Argosy can be obtained in BLACK?

Need both the bottom rub-rail and the belt line, mid way up and all the way around the trailer.

The 3 sizes of vinyl insert are also available in black.

Sergei,
I just purchased a 1975 Argosy 24 a few days ago. The bottom, larger strip was once black, now faded. The top, smaller strip is completely gone. I was able to find BOTH sizes of orange through an Airstream dealer. However, there's a company called Taco Metals who manufactures all types of rub rails and inserts. Check out www.tacomarine.com

After you find what you need, look for a dealer who can order it for you. That's what I plan on doing for several rub rail and molding applications on my Argosy. Hope they can help.

Sierra, thanks.

Do you know which TACO moldings will fit our trailers?

SmokelessJoe,
Not exactly sure YET. If anyone has it, Taco will. I looked the planet over for a hard to find rub rail on my old boat. Taco Metals was the ONLY company who had it in stock. They don't sell to anyone but dealers, so I had to find a local marine dealer to order it for me.

They sent a catalogue which shows much more available than their website. If I were you, use a micrometer to get the exact dimensions you'll need, then give them a call. I believe they have different types of inserts to fit the same size rub rails. Hey, it's worth a try.

I have some vinyl insert coming from another Airstream dealer later this week. Just in case this insert is not correct, you can bet I'll be giving Taco a call. Let me know what progress you make. Good Luck!

Just received the orange insert (both sizes for my Argosy 24) straight from Airstream via Southwest Coaches (Thanks, Justin! I'll do more business with you in the future.) Because AS was out of the exact size for my lowest beltline, I went with the motorhome insert which is slightly wider. No problem, though. All I need to do is easily trim off both lip edges, and viola! Fits perfectly and looks great! I won't install this while it's freezing weather, of course.

From what I heard, Airstream is out of this as of Nov. 2006. If Inland or another dealer has some lying around, it's worth a call. Shop around for the best price. I paid $26 plus some change for a roll of 50 feet (large) and 60 feet (small). The supply is out there and so is the demand, so don't settle for inflated prices.
