I like the way the trim looks! I too found some trim @ Home depot, it is a very tough, foam filled vinyl, that I cut down to 1-1/8". The only trouble is it does not turn a corner with out bunching up and popping out if the slot. I was able to use that in the living area.

Still looking for some to fit the Bath. I'll be stopping by to check out what you used. Is it flexible enough to make the corners?
I painted our bath with Por 15 Whitecoat and could not be happier. If you’d' like to see how yours will look check out

The vertical blinds are very flexible and it makes for a good fit in the aluminum trim. Nice part about using vertical blinds is that you can literally find hundreds of colors and textures to match your interior. 80" also fits most interior trim runs in the Airstream.

Nice site! I've also started posting pictures of our restoration at http://www.texpharm.com/cgi-bin/igal...ream+Tradewind

Great pics! Looks like you went down the same path as we did. Including the seat damage in the shower. I found our damage when I took it out, the area was so thin from the factory we used a POR 2 part epoxy to make the repair. I'll be checking out the blinds this week! Thanks for the tip.

mwmoss.

The "insert nosing" is still available.

That's the material that's in the molding just below your rear window.

It's our part number 71411. You can see a photo of it in our web site.

Don't take this wrong but the price for the OEM is cost prohibitive. Looking for an alternate method. What I need needs at least 30'. (plus shipping ) Thanks for the info. I will keep it in mind.

On Topic....

Hi Andy, We would love your input. What do you use when you need a replacement for the aged trim that was the cause for this thread? Pictures are posted by me above.

Thanks,

Steve

I'm pretty sure that's not the stuff that the original poster and I are talking about. Please see the early posts and SFIXX's pictures above.

Thanks,

Steve

Thumbs down Still Looking

Andy,
Steve is right, I bought some of the "insert noseing" and it is perfect for that part of the restore. I am still looking for something to replace the plastic finish edgeing that goes down both sides right about where the end-cap begins, and across under the front windows, I need to take some pictures and post them.

Thanks
Jay

What I'm talking about is the big curved one piece end cap on the end of the kitchen cabinet at the front of the trailer. They are one piece cream colored plastic that is riveted on and very cracked . I'm just trying to find a substitute. I'm considering upholstering these ends to match the sofa or using a wood piece. I have some beautiful stainless from one of my husband's jobsites, but it's not an AS it's an Argosy.

Cool "J" trim source found!!!

I am happy to report that I found a source for the "J" trim used to cover the raw edges of the interior aluminum panels. Oasis RV in Tucson, AZ. had it in stock. Stock number 200019. The charged me .35 per foot. I bought all they had; 31 feet, which I think is enought for what I need, but they told me they expect more in soon. Phone 520 889-6361, 1-800 658-5863 Web www.oasisrv.com

Thumbs up Insert material??

. I bought the insert material from Inland RV and was very happy with it. There is just ine problem. If anyone knows how to get it back in the trim I would pay a million dollars for that info. I have tried to slide it and nurse it and it will only go so far before it just stops. I have a lot to do any suggestions will be taken very seriously. This is my baby and I'm taking her back to OEM specs.

Sometimes the new beige insert nosing is difficult to install.

Not a big problem.

Turn it upside down.

Sand off some of the square edges, rounding them as you go.

Spray the metal molding with silicone spray.

The insert should now easily slide into place.

Andy
