Bathroom trim

I have this plastic (?) trim in the bathroom of my 75 Trade Wind. It has become hard and discolored. It is 1 inch wide and is all over the bathroom. They also used it as trim under the cabinets in the very front of my unit. Can anyone point me to replacement material? I figure I will need around 40 feet of this stuff. I am not even sure what color this was originally.

Cheap Alternative (linoleum strips)

Unless you're locked into keeping it all original, strips of linoleum (available in 12' wide pieces at Lowe's/Home Depot) worked quite nicely for me and allowed me to match the floor and decor of the bath.

Pizza,

What kind of paint did you use for your bathroom? My 75 AS bath looks exactly like your before pic. Well, the paint anyway and woever had her before me must have taken some panels out . There is caulk smeared around all of the seams and tub. And I mean smeared!!! Like 1-2 in. thick. Maybe they were trying to hold it together. Wo knows.

Scotty

We used 2-part epoxy (Tough as Tile), available at Lowe's for about $25.

Here's a pic of the Overlander paint, the Sovereign paint, and the finished bath.

It is brushable a well, but I prefer to spray it. (Cleanup is a bit messy.)

It can be done in place, if you remove all your trim and prep it thoroughly.

A very cheap but very nice alternative is to remove it and simply use the bronze which is underneath it. I did this with my 75 Tradewind and now with my Motor Home. (Although I am certain Balrgn has replaced it with the exact same plastic trim which was there from the factory in the '75 Tradewind. He probably has even found a way to fade it a little to give it a '75 look. He bought my 75.) I liked the metal trim better than the plastic. It looks classier and no one will ever know it once held a cheap looking plastic trim. (That is no one but Balrgn.)

Balgrn redid his bath in his 75 Tradewind last year, not sure he has installed trim yet. I do believe he was planning to. For folks who haven't already done so check out his website, he did a fantastic job.

This material is called "nosing" and can be found at Inland RV in California. They sell it by the foot. I replaced about 9 feet of it in my Excella bathroom about 6 months ago. It is closer to the color of your headliner than the yellowish color you see now.
