Body End (Belt) Side molding end cap Sources


Recommended Posts

At the end of the body side mouldings (sorry, try as I do, I can't figure out how to add a photo) that cap the ends...I have a couple that are deteriorating and I'd like to replace them. Anyone know where I might find them or, perhaps just fabricate news ones out of thin sheet metal. I might even just caulk them well with silicone buy, I'd prefer to make them look nice.

I also could not find replacements for these.  And, I was not happy with the original material which rusted badly.  I fabricated new ones out of thin aluminum material (I used some scrap pieces of old storm door frames).  They worked nicely and are holding paint just fine.

p.s.  I also remember that DR4Film (Richard) was looking for these and I think he found them.  He may chime in.

I need help identifying what these covers are called and where I can purchase these. As you can see they are decaying and rusting so I'm trying to replace them. Thanks in advance.

I never found the exact boxed design but used an aluminum alternative. There was a recent post about them, I believe Amazon was one of the sources.  This is what my replacement looks like installed, behind the Wyoming dirt...

Chris Throgmartin (Talin) @throgmartin would be your best shot.  PM him.

They are called, in my limited knowledge, as Trim End Caps.  

If you Google RV Trim End Caps....you get several hits on Amazon.

AP Products has them....probably many others. You need to measure one of the good ones and then go from there.

Try their website.  Whether Monaco had them custom stamped or used a vender like AP, I do not know.

Chris probably will

I edited the title to be a little more specific...

FWIW....if you use the SEARCH function, you can find a lot of info first....then go there and if needed....start a post.

 

 

I am going to combine your post with the last one.....since it is not that old.  We need to do this to keep from having some many posts about the same thing.

Thanks for understanding and also being able to search and get info in the future.
