Plastic end cap for panels

Is the plastic end cap that goes over the end of the aluminum panel around where it buts up the the end cap available? In my trailer its off white that matches the vinyl covered aluminum. I managed to break a piece last night.

No longer available which is why there are so many threads on "ABS repair". The end caps also get very fragile as they age and many who try to remove them for repair or paint come to regret it.

We painted ours in place using XIM primer and good latex over it. Has looked great for 2 plus years now.

I guess my post was misleading. I am not looking for the endcap but the trim the covers the sharp aluminum edge that overlaps the end cap. From a side profile it looks like a J with the longer edge going behind the panel and the short edge covering the sharp edge.

You should be able to buy them at your nearest airstream dealer.
I replaced mine about 4-5yrs ago when I replaced the complete front end of my airstream . CAN-AM RV ordered them for me in Canada.

Quick question: Is this trim purely aesthetic, or is it functional as well? I removed all of it from my trailer (including the trim that covered the panels in the shower) since it was crumbling away.

I don't mind the look of the exposed panel edges, but if the trim helps with waterproofing or somesuch, that'd be good to know!

Can the molding be removed and new installed with the panels in place? MPJ

It is purely for looks. It can be installed without without removing the panels although it is easier to remove the rivets first.

We got some a year ago at Oasis. but later I found this at Lowe's looks like the same stuff but only comes in 8 foot sections. I have used it a lot for edges of interior walls[IMG]file:///C:/Users/175594/AppData/Local/Temp/moz-screenshot.png[/IMG].
