Thumbs up

Hey Cat -- When you measure it, could you post your feet? We just bought a 1985 32 foot Excella October 31st and need a bit of trim our selves. Would be interested in what you find out.

Sharing Vinyl Clad rolls

Thanx...I am forming a list b/c I am receiving lots of response about this sharing the vinyl clad. One thing we all agree on , is that we have to be sure that we are all needing the same thing. I think the best way is to take pictures of the area it is to be installed on---with a metal measuring tape held ON the track where the Vinyl Clad is to go. and the download and post the photo with the tape in it

Email me at either the Personal Message Post...or personally email me at TinLizzy8131@yahoo.com.

Thanx......Cat

Cat.

Vinylclad is the interior metal.

The molding plastic is called "vinyl insert."

It is available in "BLUE"only, and in 50 foot rolls, only.

There are two uses for the insert. The "rub rail" which is at the floor line of the trailers and motorhomes, and the "belt line," which goes through the center of the trailers and motorhomes.

There are two sizes (width) of belt line. The wide belt line was used starting in 1974 and was used until 1977.
The narrow belt line was used starting in 1978 and up.

The rub rail insert is the same size for all the trailers from 1974 and up.

The motorhome rub rail insert, is wider than the trailer insert.

Hopefully, this will help with your collection.

Additionally, remind those that are interested, to include enough for the roof AC shroud, which is an additional 13 feet.

Vinyl Insert

How about the Propane "Shroud" ? If you needed it for the A/C...wouldn't you also need it for the tank shroud?

I'm going to have to take photos...the "Rub Rail" I 'get'...but the
"Belt Rail" I DON'T 'get'. Because mine is not the thick 'separate' "PIECE" of vinyl (that cracks and pulls off (out of a Trak).
My "Rub Rail" is the "piece" that pulls off in lengths...so far, it pulls off in pieces, b/c it's cracked and brittle and breaks in sections; so far, I have 3 pieces off, one about 10 feet in length, one about 5 ft. and one about 8 feet.
Now...HERE'S WHERE I'M LOST....the "BELT RAIL". Mine is about 6 inches wide---the top and bottom 1-1/2 " being DARK BLUE, with the center 2-1/2 inches being BA BY BLUE, with about 1/8 inch gold pinstriping between the 3 (2 rows of gold P-S).

IS THIS CUSTOM??? It's VERY THICK...but not like a VINYL "INSERT"...and it is CRACKED .

I'm taking photos tomorrow...with a measuring tape in the photo...and I'll download them after the TG holiday.

BTW...my A/C has no blue stripe anywhere...it's all white (cream)....

Vinyl Clad vs. Insert

That was a very informative description of the "rails".

Andy, if you don't mind revisiting this topic yet again... I looked at the trim you have pictured in your online catalog and am trying to determine if one of them is the correct item for my '66 Overlander. According to your previous post, and the info on the website, the thinner trim you sell is for 78 and up trailers. But it looks like the right size to fit the channels on my rig which measure just under a half inch. I have narrow channels on both the middle and the lower sections of the trailer. Any suggestions? Will the replacement stuff work? I have none of the original pieces left to compare.

I appreciate whatever guidance you can give!

I need to know the same thing for my 68 Overlander. Was ours painted? I see a little blue left.

I wondered about paint...there could be some remnants of paint on mine but I really can't say for sure. It would be an option if the trim doesn't fit. It just seems like the channel is designed for the vinyl trim though doesn't it?

The paint sounds much more difficult to do.
