Angry Need help with repairing exterior molding that holds the back and side panels togther

To begin with I live at the base on the Olympic Mountains in Washington state, about a 45 minute drive to Aberdeen a coastal community. We inherited this 1996 winniebago thirty ft. winnie minnie MH about four months ago. it has been sitting for two years. I have been doing alot of TLC and reading alot. Myself and our five yr old grandson went to town to get gas, since we inherited the Mh. About six months ago and have only added a few gas cans of gas, Make a long story short and lack of skill I scraped the end of the barge rafter which had a screw sticking out. I looked in mirror swore I had plenty of room, WRONG. Anyway I tore the moulding loose from the back passage side of the mh . It holds the side and back panels together its looks lke an aluminun peice with a 90 degree in it to connect back and side panel together and has a rubber like piece inside that looks like it might cover the screws. 3/4s of it is pull off, screws pulled out, I am not rich, and would like to try to fix it myself, Looked at molding can't figure out how to get to the screws.

Was all hype up to use it for the first time in the real soon future. Now I am not sure when that will be. Really want to get it fixed to take to Silverwood theme park in July in Idaho since we made reservation already. Pro is that I am going to ensure I have feet of clearance not inches.
Thank you, Sorry about rattling on and on, still very angry at self. Any help is very much appearicated.

Here is a company that has all kinds of things, download their catalogue and then send them a good photo, you could get lucky, we did, found the screw cap we needed.

My bus had big ugly corner covers made out of aluminum. I made new smaller pieces from fiberglass and epoxied the whole thing together. You will probably have to make something yourself as parts for these old busses are nonexistent.
