Need help finding parts

I am trying to locate some molding pieces needed for the bottom edge of our new basement doors. We have most of them but some of the old doors were lacking these pieces so we need probably about 15' of this molding but seem to have hit a wall finding it.

There are 2 large motorhome bodyshops near me and neither could assist other then referring me to a supplier in GA but their website seems to not offer the item.

I have tried calling Coachman but this being a 1995 it was a different company then. I have tried calling Coachman service multible times to only get the opportunity to leave a message that now weeks have gone by without a response.

Following are pictures of the molding this piece is 6" so is a sample. I'm looking for long sections we can cut to fit the doors needing them. If anyone has a suggestion I wold appreciate it. I'm even open to changing all of them to a different style if needed to get it done.

That looks like aluminum extrusion to me. I checked my old Ryerson's catalog and they don't show that as a standard extrusion but they do say that they are relatively inexpensive to have custom made at an aluminum shop.

I've seen that profile somewhere, just can't remember where. But I've been in thousands of places that sell metal stock so that's probably not unusual.

I'm sure that Coachmen would not have used a custom piece, so it's out there. Just have to find someone that has stock of that shape. I'd not try RV places as much as I'd check metal places.

BTW, those sort of look like the extruded aluminum pieces used on shower stalls. Have you checked your size against that? At Lowe's or Home Depot? That would give you a lead perhaps.

Google Taco Metals.........they have lots of extrusions. You may have to buy two different profiles and have them welded together to make the profile you want
