Wink Trim

Hello. We are still working on our 31' Soverign and it's coming along great. What we are in need of is the plastic piece that slides through the trim. I'm talking about the trim in the bathroom and throughout the inside of the trailer. It's gold and the plastic piece (that we need) is cream in color. We did purchase some already but it was to thick to slide through the gold piece. Thanks for any help.

I purchased some form Ace Fogdall in Iowa 800-747-0747. I bought too much, and have since sold it. If you have the right stuff it just may be an issue of installtion instuctions. I have attached the instructions I sent to the member who bought my excess.

Here are the directions
First I get a rough measurement of length and cut it a bit longer, The using the How to start picture get one edge in.

You can gently bend the insert to get the end started and pop it in, but be careful as it will stress it to the point of turning it white. The look you are going for is in the picture Getting in the first inch.

Then using a screwdriver push the molding up into place and pop it in. I was able to do this in half inch increments. I recommend a smooth handled screwdriver or you will have blisters by the time you are done. See Pushing it in . The screwdriver will rest in the notch created in the molding to hold it in.

Get it near the end and trim to fit before you get the final end in.

The picture shows it installed but not yet caulked.

I love the way it looks installed, I think you will too.

Lisa & Larry,
If you bought the trim from an Airstream dealer, then it's probably the right material. To add to the above instructions, warm the plastic with a hair dryer and it will be much more pliable and easier to insert. Leave a little extra hanging off the ends and don't cut it to final length until it's completely cool, as it will shrink. Try to use one continuous piece when ever possible to avoid gaps when it shrinks from cold temps.

Great help guys! My bathroom plastic trim is cracked and I was wondering how I was going to get new trim in. These tips will help me when I buy replacements.

Let us know how the trim from Inland works out. I am about to redo all of my trim as well and was unsure if Andy has the right stuff. Something about having to sand down the edges before installation didn't sound like an exact replacement to me. I have a bunch to do and want it to go as smoothly as possible.

The current "nosing" fits the latest molding.

To make it work in the old moldings, it is necessary to remove a very small part on the backside square corners.

Then with the help of some silicone spray, it will slide in the molding very easily.

Our part number for the nosing is 71411. You can see a picture of it in web site,
Click on parts.
We sell hundreds of feet of it each month.
