Rub Rail ?

This is my first post. I have a 2012 Eddie Bauer. I bought used about 3 months ago. The Right fender came off with the original owner. The left side isn't far behind. the double sided tape is failing. I feel it looks better of but I have about a 6 inch section that now needs Rub- rail to clean up the look. I can find the exterior rubrail on out of doors mart with the double sided tape. I cannot find the part that attaches to the camper and then what the Rub rail is taped to. Thanks for your time

Ok.. you are missing the 'beltline' trim.. looks like previous owner had a tire let go or other damage in the area. Rather than remove the whole length of the beltline and replace, they cut it off shorter... a hack of a fix..

So you will have to get the replacement beltline, pull off the 'insert', drill out all the rivets from the remaining length to the next section where it started. I looked on outofdorrsmart.com they did not have the metal 'beltline' rail that I could see.. they have the 'insert' which is the chrome thing in the center.. chances are, the 'insert' is barely stuck to the beltline rail...

You may have to find them from Airstream directly.

Did you replace the exterior green rubrail? How bad is it to replace?

"replace" of the rail is not difficult.. drill out the old rivets, pull off the old rail, drill the NEW holes in the NEW rail is the 'hard part'... getting them to line up... but it is worth it.. and can be done.

Rivet in the new rail, replace the center trim... go camping.

Actually I was referring to the plastic/rubber insert in the rubrail. Not sure if its adhesive, taped, or other. Just me being vain... I have a blacked out truck and was looking to replace the (in my opinion) god awful green band that runs around the EB model with black. That and a quick paint job on the emblem and the trailer matches the truck.
