Thanks for the site. I had previously looked at their product and wasn't sure if it would work for me, so I passed. My needs have been met as far as rub rail is concerned. Thanks anyway. You might try a place in Alabama called Montevallo campground and RV service. They are really slow but may be able to help you. If I remember the guy's name was Sonny. Albeit, I had a little trouble understanding them, I think they have parts. # 205 665-2531 Best of luck in your journey.

Thanks for the tip, Radman.

I think I will be able to handle the accent; I'm from about 125 miles north of there!

Make sure you're asking for the right thing. Rub rail is the lower trim strip between the belly and the side panels. Beltline is the middle trim strip at chest height. Maybe take a photo next to a ruler & crop it if they'd improve your chances by having a photo sample -- if they take emails with attachments. But I'd call first and start up that relationship thing.
Hi Bob;
Colaws has acknowledged receipt of my E-mail and assigned a person to handle my request. This was 6 weeks ago and I have yet to hear from him. I am not the one to push my dollar into someone's pocket by force, but response from the business is the least I expect. In my business I return all calls regardless if I can, or cannot help the customer. Fortunately, there are others like me who at least offer you common courtesy to reply to a request. I would rather make the part from scratch, than be ignored by outfit like Colaws. Thanks, "Boatdoc"

Boatdoc, catching up on reading some subscribed threads and ran across this one.

I've dealt with Colaws a couple of times and been very happy with the service. Like Bob suggested, I called first, then emailed picutres of the items I needed. I got all of the proper items very quickly with very courteous service. I don't know why Colaws dropped the ball on your order, stuff happens sometimes. I'd give them a second try. Good luck with it.
