Need argosy window U trim

Does anyone know where I can find the plastic "u" shaped trim that goes around the curved windows in my Argosy where the window frame meets the inside wall? Mine are brittle and break when I try to clean them. Or has someone found a different way of replacing this trim? Appreciate any ideas. thanks!!

Hi nodpete -- Hope you're enjoying the Forums! You're going to make us look good with this question.

That item is called j-trim and some Airstream dealers stock it. For quick service and inexpensive postage I can recommend OASIS R.V. CENTER, INC. - Home in Tucson. They know Airstreams top to bottom and their parts department is excellent working with you over the phone. 1-800-658-5863

You'll need to remove and replace pop rivets to put in the new material but it's worth it -- it looks sharp! You'll have to snip the longer hidden backside with side cutters every inch or two to go around the curve by the windows.

Thanks Bob, I'll give them a call. Yes, I am enjoying this forum. I'm new to this stuff, but it's great to be able to ask all this expeirience on any problems that folks have.

further info.

Airstream at JC has this trim also. We found it at our local big box home improvement store in various colors too.
