Unpainted Belt-line End Cap Covers


Recommended Posts

A few years ago I had ordered a 3-4 sets of belt-line end caps from Rev RV Parts. I don't remember the exact price but I do remember that they were reasonably priced.

I called today to place an order for 3 more sets as some of the ones I replaced were rusting in a very short time even after painting them with a good glossy black paint. They quoted me a price of $35 for a set which is one right and left hand belt-line cap. Yikes!

After catching my breath I told them forget it.

Does anyone have another source for these end caps? If I can't find a different source then I will plan to cobble something together to cover the ends of the belt-line with some other material and paint them glossy black.

Richard,  couple of years ago I added an extra "belt line" in the rear where our wheel surrounding started to wave. Its not an exact replacement but I think it is aluminum and decent looking. If you think that you could use it, I would look through my pile of receipts to find the source.

Any help would be great Ivan. The new belt-line that you installed, is it close in size to the original ones on the coach?

You can see both new and old in the pic. They look identical to me. I start digging for the source.

Well, I ordered a set of black ones from Amazon and your belt-lines must be entirely different than mine as these don't even come close to fitting or working correctly.

However, I will take one or two of them and cut them up a little to see if I can cobble them into covering the ends somewhat. Otherwise they are useless to me.

Ya know it took me awhile an a few $ to relize Amazon has a GREAT return policy, plus on some things they dont even require the item to be sent back. You know as a person who is trying to just keep up on the maintance on our rigs there are times you have to try something different or use a part thats “not quite the same” as you took off. To me thats when you become a Mechanic, in that your able to cobble something an make it work, an FOR ME, thats when i get a sence of pride, knowing “nope not to day” am i going to admit defeate... I WILL MAKE IT WORK!!! An there are times i will try several things before it get right, but in the end it comes out as good or better than it was before😎
