Red face Trim molding search

Howdy - I have a 1996 Holiday Rambler Alumalite Custom that is in awesome shape on the inside but the trim covering all seams on the outside is very weathered. I have been searching every where trying to find some so I can bring the outside back to match the condition of the inside. I have been able to find one place that has some but it is "Polar White" and I need "off white".

If any one has any idea for a source please let me know. It is shaped like a flattened "C" and snaps over an aluminum track that is 3/4 of and inch wide.

Thanks in advance for any help - Jon

If you strike out finding the cover in the right color, you could go to a automotive paint supply store with a sample of your color. They can mix the paint in aerosol cans. You can paint the cover quite easily. Also, once installed, that cover should be caulked with Geocell Pro RV to keep the water from getting into your wall and delaminating it. Geocell Pro RV is paintable, so you might want to paint everything after the cover is installed and caulked.

Painting molding

Thanks for the input but the trim I am talking about seems to be about halfway between rubber and plastic - I don't think paint would hold well to it. I just know there is some out there some where I just have to find it. I will admit though that I am beginning to get a little concerned because it isn't showing up as quickly as most of my searches have succeeded.

The Geocell Pro is good stuff - I used it on an old timer I restored for my wife and it seems to be a great product.

Learn something every day.

Just thought I would let you know that I was wrong - you gave good advise and I thought I knew better. The molding is paintable and actually ends up with a better finish once painted. I am ending up doing it exactly as you said so thank you. You put me on the right trail, I was just slow to realize it. Again thank you - Jon

I found this kind of trim while looking for some for mine. It comes in a couple different sizes and colors and lengths. This link should get you started.

Good morning - I found the trim at Veurinks RV | Holiday Rambler Motorhome Dealer | K-Z RV | Dutchmen Infinity RV | Kodiak RV and Aspen Trail Sales . There are two types you will need. The type with the leg and the type without the: leg/Users/joncarter/Desktop/2001 MONACO KNIGHT---EXTERIOR TRIMS.pdf
Hopefully you can open the pics

It works well but I will offer a couple little hints - when installing it goes easiest if you roll or bend the trim back on itself as you attach rather than snapping it on. Second: when you use the ProFlex RV cut the tip opening as small as you can and use a small bowl of very very soapy water to dip you finger or tool in. It makes a big difference.

I haven't tried the painting part yet but it sure does look a lot better.
