Another Classic owner with the same issue! I've sort of being ignoring mine - probably for too long - because I wasn't sure there was much i could do.

Is the centre section fibreglass and the end caps plastic? I never seem to have much success with epoxies or products like JB weld on plastic, but it sounds as though your repair is holding up so maybe I'll give it a try.

I wonder if the whole works could be painted after to spruce everything up an hide the repairs - I know there are specialty paints for car bumpers & such.

On a related issue, the centre section of the bumper on our trailer has been very much dulle by UV I suppose.

I ca get it looking good again with products such as Armorall and the similar products, bit it a very temporary remedy.

Yes, center is glass and ends plastic. Regular car wax will shine up the glass. Several applications will be necessary to remove heavy oxidation. Then it needs to he done about once a month to keep it dark and shiny.

I found the end parts for sale for $194 online at Airstream Supply. As long as the rub rail is removed might as well take the other side off and check the seal behind the rub rail.
