Slideout Interior Fascia Remodel

Has anyone remodeled their slideout fascia covers...or the trim and moulding?

I'm in a quandry about this and I'm not putting that MDF covered look like wood contact paper back in that the trim borders were made out of.

Thanks for the input.

Pictures of where I'm at in the project are at this link:

Not been there, but some suggestions.

Given the frame is like a standard window, seek out places that supply and or perform molding work.

Basic miter cuts abd attachment but the cuts most important to finish.

Visit a few places for ideas, even the box stores have displays full of ideas, grab some stock and lay it out on the floor for looks.

Don't know what dimensions you need but Crown is not going to be easy to adapt. Have a look at Chair Rail or Chair Mould. It's flat on back and comes in quite a few profiles. The MDF is more stable than wood and holds paint with no grain showing thru.

I agree Bruce. I may have to change my plan.

The width of the fascia is 4.5".

This all started because there had been massive blowing wind rains on the galley slide, which is 15' and water penetrated the seals, ran down and saturated the mdf coated trim. When I bought the coach, there were several places where the wood grain adhesive had bubbled loose from the trim and some where it actually just deteriorated and was loose hanging. Wish I had pictures of that damage before I ripped the stuff off of there. I just got sick of looking at it and pulled it off a couple of weekends ago, thereby forcing me to remodel them.

I do have enough of the original undamaged molding to re-install it on the inner perimeter of the slides. Originally there was a 4" space between the molding/edging with fabric.

I may have to go back to the molding and install either wallpaper or a different fabric.

This is definitely a work in progress......thanks for the help I'll go look up the chair rail or char molding....

I found a couple of older pics of the slide, you can kind of see the damage, but its too blurry to see how bad it looked.......

You can have a look at chair moulding and combine with another moulding or use 2 chair moulding edge-to-edge. Like 2 of these with the fat edges out and the skinning edges against each other ... combined width is 4.75 ... pretty close. It's not uncommon to "stack" or combine mouldings.

You are evry welcome! Poke around Home Depot and I think you can find 2 mouldings that will work together. Even if there is a gap, you can paint or stain to match or add a contrast.

Like these only think separation of mouldings.

Moulding Combination Profiles | Tague Lumber

Here's one:

and the reverse of the same would work.

Yep, that's what I'm going to do. Unfortunately I have painted most of the crown moulding I bought for this so I'm gonna be unable to return it. :( Oh well, live and learn..

Thanks again Bruce, will let you know what I come up with.

Maybe. I was thinking although the black really looks sharp, and really sets the rest of the coach off, I may go ahead and re-wall paper the galley slide. There are holes where I removed those bench seats and I'd like to just cover all the wallpaper in that entire slide. So that should be done before I put the cap/fascia on.

I am thinking more and more a center chair rail about 2 5/8" then a 1" corner moulding on the top and bottom for the fascia. Then I wouldn't have to worry about the 2" moulding that covers the inside lip of the fascia (where all the carriage bolts are that were under the old 2" j moulding made of fiberboard that warped) That would solve my problems about the inside trim of the 12' galley slideout.

I think I'll go back with the original moulding, that wasn't damaged, in the bedroom slideout and will just replace it with fabric that matches the window boxes.

There are a lot of options, I'm not in any hurry, and am going to consider all ideas before I set my course of action here. I want it to look the best possible. I really like the solid wood slide fascias on the high end coaches...........like these...

Finally completed! Used baseboard on the interior edges, a 1" trim around the outer edges, and the crown moulding. Caulked (black) along the seams, air nailed (I didn't, I had a friend come do that...) everything, filled the nailholes then went back for a final touch up paint. The black paint is a primer / paint combination.

It is bold, but I'm very happy with the results, and it flows nicely with the countertop colors and looks much better in person than in the pictures, which I think look great.

Last step is a medallion for the center of the galley slide, which I haven't decided on yet.....

Thanks Bruce

I looked at lots of different options at Home Depot after we last talked, and the 4.5 crown moulding remained the best bet so I found a nice baseboard to butt up against it to cover the screw heads and wood, it fit perfectly! On the outside edges (like behind the driver's seat when the slide is in) I had bought a 1" almost lathe stripping for trim that fit beautifully around the visible exteriors. Incredible how it went together so well. It really gave the slide legs a 'column' look.

I went back and filled all the nale holes (air nailer-what a savior) and touch up painted last night, I was too excited and couldn't wait to finish it.

The pictures don't show how nice it looks with the new sofa, etc....I need to take one of those 3d panaroma pics...lol
