Exterior vinyl trim

I own a 1976 31' Sovereign. The exterior decorative trim that is a blue vinyl is missing in a few places. This is the trim that runs in a track the length of the AS and surrounds the logo at the rear. Is this something that I can replace or should I remove it all and just paint the empty track blue? I would prefer to replace the missing pieces if possible.

I replaced some on my '75. I got it from a dealer, so I know it's still available.

The stuff in the track is called beltline. We had it in our 1979 but was dry-rotted and looked like blue cork. We took it out to polish and I have already ordered and gotten replacement. The replacement is like a pliable plastic (almost rubber). It is a little expensive but looks really good where I have already replaced in the A/C cover. I think we spent $125 for both the lower, wider beltline that wraps the entire camper and the thin upper beltline that goes around almost twice. We have a 31' Sovereign as well. We got ours from online. There are a number of places that carry it other than Airstream and they are cheaper.

Bowmans... I'm needing "beltline" for my 93 Excella and wonder if you remember the names of some of the online places you found yours? Thanks, Kurt

Beltline

I believe we got ours from Andy at InLandRV.com.
