Chuck, it'll be a few days before I'll have time for pics again. Too busy at work, trailer's in storage right now.
But I will take some and post them, soon.

Couple of other ideas, what about cutting a thin veneer wooden strip insert and using velcro, tape, glue...whatever...lay it in. Could look nice.

Another option would be to use a metal insert or overlay, you could maybe shape your own that way....you can buy rolls of workable brass, etc that can be formed.

Good suggestions, tin hut.
One challenge is that the section along the rear vanity is curved. It follows the contour under the rear window, from left to right. The other sections go in places where i would rather not have them protrude much. The stuff they used is just perfect, i guess. I will try and find something very similar. So far, no go on any of the sources I tried. Most of them have metal molding, someof the vinyl insert trim, but no one so far shows the system I am looking for.
Another thing, parts of it go into the wet area of the wet bath, under the step the toilet sits on. So it also has a sealing function once caulked over with silicone.

I just talked with the folks at Inland RV today looking for exactly the same item. They suggested I take a piece to Home Depot and see if they have anything similar since it is no longer made by Airstream. I'll post more if I find anything.

I'm not sure if you folks have a store called Princess Auto down in your neck of the woods (USA) but I have found many items for my Airstream there. Anodized aluminum trim of every shape and size for example. I browze the store occasionally for fun because you never know what you'll find there. But then again I need to get a life.

Bathroom Trim Ideas

Uwe,

You're about 4 weeks ahead of me in the restoration process. (My floor new floor is in and I just finished cleaning all the disassembled bathroom pieces on my back patio, awaiting the refinishing process.)

Sounds like my trim is different than yours as it is aluminum with a vinyl insert. (Don't know if you can find some or not.) But as my wife and I were discussing replacing the insert (it is yellowed, cracked, and otherwise ugly, those pieces that survived the rip out anyway), she picked up a piece of linoluem, cut a 1-1/2" strip, and it slid in perfectly.

We now know how we will make our trim match our new floor, as well as coordinate with the new paint/wallpaper in the bathroom.

This may not help you as it looks like your trim is different, but if you can get your hands on some aluminum trim.....

I think there is a little terminology confusion here. The piece that is being sought is a snap-on cover (?try Home Depot, cabinet dept.), rather than an insert. The slide in, vinyl insert can be found at Camping World ( item #2948, $4.49/25ft) or from Inland RV (quite a bit more expensive at $1.25/ft).

It's not a slide in molding.
I have done the RV store, Home Depot, cabinet shop etc. runs already.

The rivets holding the bathroom plastic fixturs together go through the part that is showing the holes ( see pics)
The other part does not snap in it, but rather over it, and then hides the rivets and keeps splash water from going through the rivet centers. My trailer has a wet bath. ( very wet with me in it!)
the entire assembly must be semi flexible and thin to work as needed.

I am patient. Some of it will surface when least expected. thanks for all your tips so far.

I think it was Shari's web site on her trailer renovation that talked about getting some kind of metal moldings for kitchen cabinets and dinette table...maybe that sort of supplier would have something appropriate?
The place I got our table edge trim is Outwater Plastics if you still need another resource to check out. Call them they have much more in their catalog than shown online.

Good luck!

Shari

That photo of uwe's looks a lot like the plastic wiremold that you can buy in 6 foot lengths at Home Depot. I think it's something like 1-1/4" wide and about 1/4" deep. It snaps together like the molding in the picture (outside, not inside). Probably could paint it if needed also.

UPDATE:

OK, it's 5' lengths, white, unhinged and between 7-8 bucks.

You can find it on the Home Depot site, doing a search for "wiremold"

I ordered the Outwater catalog, looks like that's the closest so far.
I might have to just use an adhesive backed trim strip and stick it over the rivet holes.
I am yet to find a material similar enough to the original.
Thanks a bunch for everyone's help.
