Helpful links?

Are you talking about the yellowed trim that runs under the window, around under the counter edge, etc? If so its called nosing I believe. Inlandrv.com has it in the original off-white color, as well as orange, AS blue, and maybe others. Also you can do a search online for vinyl insert trim or rv trim, I have found it in black, silver & white. Even check on Ebay for trailer/rv trim.

Here's a few links: Trailer Trim, and RV Parts, RV, Mobile Homes, Mobile Home Parts : Trim and Moldings. They have beige too.

I'm working on a similar repair/replacement in ours. I will be using the flextrim stuff where the tub panel meets the floor as mine has a round edge on the tub, and we are replacing the flooring with vinyl (took out the carpet). I will post pics of the look when we are finished (probably 4-6 weeks from now) on my other thread @

I've added your pic from your blog that I think shows what you asking about. Technically you can use anything that is the right width and can be flexible to go through the channel. Some people have used strips of floor vinyl cut to size. I hope this helps. If that is not what you are looking for then this company makes flexible trim (flextrim). The link is for there dealer search page where you can do a search based on zip, # results, and distance radius. They will email you the results instantly. They had several near me, and have a few more you can get it from online. dealer search

Here's your pic of the bath with the yellowed trim:



Good luck, let us know what you end up using.

Happy trailering!

Mary

Insert width

FYI: Be sure to make sure the insert you choose is the right width. Measure the existing one and match the width before ordering any product. Not all inserts are the same.

Mary.

The insert nosing is for the interior, only.

The colored vinyl inserts are for the exterior, only.

They use different moldings, and one really can't be used with the other moldings.

Thank you Mary for all your suggestion and for taking so much time to add a picture of MY bathroom from our blog as the "trim in question" Why didn't I think of that?

Thank you everyone

Thank you everyone for all the suggestions. I wonder how it would work it I bought the original trim and painted it the color I need with Krylon Fusion?

Insert nosing

There is a little trick to replacing that insert nosing.

The only nosing available from Airstream, was designed to fit a newer type molding. We have looked and looked, and have not found a reasonable substitute.

To make it work in the older trailers, is really not that big of a deal.

Lay the nosing face down.

Take a sander and knock off a little of the edge squares that are on, what is now, the top side.

Lube the metal moldings with some silicone spray, and then insert the nosing at one end.

Simply slide it into place.

If it doesn't want to slide very far, then you must remove a little bit more of the squares that are on the backside of the nosing.

Maybe we can figure out a way to do this on a large scale "in house."

Andy

Thanks Andy!

I was hoping we could bend it and snap it in place

I guess we could just cut our own strips out of some other material and feed it through.

Sorry, but it cannot be bent and snapped in place.

The insert nosing to be installed, must slide thru the metal molding.

What about painting the trim with Fusion paint?

When the insert nosing turns yellow, is usually becomes very brittle as well.

Painting it, I guess, is Ok, but you will have to do a bunch of masking if you want to spray it on, even with rattle can paints.

Good luck with your choice.

I meant to say I might paint the NEW trim a color that would match my interior with KRYLON FUSION paint and was wondering if it would hold.
