Argosy orange trim

I purchased 2 rolls of the upper trim two years ago and it completely faded after just one year !

I bought them at Inland RV and had to buy two rolls from them as one would be a little short based on the way they package them.

Iím putting out the request to see if anyone has a similar situation or simply wants to help a brother out by selling me their remaining section that I would need. I donít recall how short Iíll be but believe itís not much. FYI I have the 26 footer.

Dan. I went through many rolls of orange before I gave up and did black. The black is much more UV resistant. The black is going on 10 yrs now and is starting to crack. I was lucky if I got 2-3 yrs out of the orange, and we lived in the woods, with minimal sun on the trailer.

When I bought my Minuet 2 Ĺ years ago the small orange vinyl insert was original, dull and a little dark and the lower large insert was a fairly recent replacement. 2 years later, the small vinyl looks the same and the lower was cracked and faded. I replaced the lower and 3 months later I can see fading. I bought replacement for the small and will not be putting it on the trailer. I am going to experiment with painting the vinyl. If I can make it work it should not fade and should block UV degradation.

My Minuet is 20' so I have some extra, how much do you need?
