TRIM? not sure what its called???

It seems most of the "trim" other than the ends of it, is missing from my baby. It looks like it is supposed to rivet or somehow attach onto the inner trim piece. Where can I find replacement trim or what do others do when this is missing?

I got mine at Inland RV Center - The Nations Leading Expert in Airstream Innovations

My trailer uses two sizes. I bought 2 rolls of each size.

Eastern South Dakota is very pretty with hills, rivers, and trees.

These are vinyl inserts that slide into the channels and are held by the end caps that rivet on. They come in rolls by the foot. Look in Exterior Trim at inlandrv.com or in Airstream Special at Out-Of-Doors Mart (odmrv.com).

There is a MUCH cheaper alternative to the scarce on-line distributors. Rustoleum paint has a color that matches perdy good. True, you have to actually paint it on the camper and that takes time. But it's much cheaper and looks better (IMHO).

Did I mention you can save money with this route?

Thanks Terry. I forgot the color. I'm basically "cheap". Anytime I can save several hundred dollars, that's the path for me.

I have another question about the trim. Does the blue color go the whole width of the inset (as in one ribbon? Or is it thin and just within the rail (as in 2 small ribbons?)

The vinyl insert is one piece and rests within the metal molding.

It is two smaller inserts.

Thanks, I thought it was the smaller two ribbons but I saw one today that had a wider blue strip.

It is one insert in the channel like Andy said. Look at the end piece by the International sign where the paint is(n't).

If I do this right, this is a photo of a '74 with all three inserts installed:

Thanks for posting this. I am a visual person and it's nice to see what it's supposed to be like. Is yours paint or the actual strips?
