Adhesive for rub rail on 2006 Safari

Well, we just purchased a '06 25' Safari SE FB and are enjoying the heck out of it. This is also my first post on the forums. I really love this site. I have a rub rail that is coming a bit loose and I want to know what the appropriate adhesive is for it and the best method for reattachment. I have some Sikaflex 221 that I bought from AS. Here is a better pic so you know what I am talking about. Thanks in advance!

Welcome Sirws, and congrats on all accounts!

I've use contact cement on my rub rail. Be sure to let it tack up as per the instructions.

Is there double sided sticky back on the insert?

Maybe others know some other method. I'm sure they will chime in....

Welcome to the adventure!

I had to replace some of the same stuff on our '06 Classic becuase some of the plastic chrome started to bubble and I did not like the looks of it. It was still under warranty when it happened. If I remember correctly it is just 3M double sided tape on the back. Remove the old trim piece, strip the adhesive from the trim strip and the trailer, and clean both surfaces. Then go to Home Depot or similar store and get some 3M double sided tape and you should be in business.

If you need fresh trim you can get some at Out of Doors Mart...
