Vogue Body Seam Question

I am restoring a 1985 Vogue 37 foot diesel pusher. I included a pic of the RV as most folks have no idea what a Vogue is.


Back ground: The vogue has a fiberglass body that is made of panels (side, front, rear, and top). The panels are mounted to each other and held together with screws through an aluminum extrusion. Then a vinyl strip is inserted in the center of the extrusion to hide the screws. I am sure that I am not using the correct terminology, but I hope you understand what I mean. I included a photo of one of the strips on my RV.

My question: I will be repainting the rv and want to paint over these strips. What can I insert in the aluminum extrusions that will hide the screws, but be paintable? I don't think the vinyl will be a stable surface to paint on.

Thanks,

Jim

Check with a local auto paint supply shop in your area, I think any of the paints available for the plastic/composite bumpers on almost all cars would work. Probably need to brush on some type of adhesive thats specially made for plastic/vinyl, but then the paint will adhere. Since it's made to be "flexible", it should work.

I know what a vogue is and that is a beauty. I found a type tape that fits into track to cover screws. I found some that is reflective and looks pretty neat at night. I also used it to hide the painted strips that were marred. I all 4 have stuck like a glove and none has fallen off and Its been on the MH going on 5 years. If you wish click on picture to zoom in.

You can buy the vinyl in roll's from any RV supplier in many different colors. I replaced all of mine in a older coach as it had started to yellow and was looking bad! Made a big difference with the new installed! Rail!

Can't help you but a lot of us know what a Vogue is.
I actually was looking for a Mitchell's era(1990-1998) Vogue Prima Vista.

If that stuff us what I think it is it is not common trim.

There is a place near Gilroy that has it though.

We looked for years and one place in Fresno told us of the Gilroy source.

They are an om supplier of many things like doors windows trim and many other things.

Search the four for Gilroy trim and you may find previous posts where I led others to find it.

Maybe the thread where the folks re skinned their unit.

The trim is made to be painted and unless you need to remove it do NOT mess with it as it can be brittle and it IS EXPENSIVE.

Clean existing with acetone and steel wool then paint over it.

Looks like gillig chassis too.

Before the Mitchell's took over they used a Crown bus chassis after that it was referred to as a Mitchell chassis as far as I can remember.

As an addendum to this question, is there a butyl tape or any other sealant behind the extruded aluminum piece or between the panel overlap? I am in the process of resealing my Transtar and have a similar seam construction. I am planning on replacing the vinyl cover as the original material is cracked and falling apart or missing in large swaths.

Google "RV suppliers" pick one close to you, and go to "RV molding trim" looks like it comes in three colors, white, black, colonial white (off white) and Camco also has it, so any RV store or parts place should have it! Standard length is 25' but if I remember right, you can order it in 50' length's. Hope this helps! Rail!
