Have been looking for trim pieces for inside the trailer with zero luck. I need to find the little aluminum strip that goes over edge of carpet where it meets aluminum(carpet half way up wall).

Could use some trim around door openings tocover aluminum edges. Hey might as well go for it all while asking. LOL

Trailer manufacture has bee less than zero help. Guess once you checkbook leave property thay are done. Not LOL

if you took a ride to Elkhart, Indiana you could get everything you need. Short of that call all the parts departments of the trailer builders there and order what you need.

Yea thats a last resort. They are no where near what I have seen in most trailer. Seems should be simple piece to find.WRONG.. I know someone screws them up occasionally and want to replace them. Might check few more stores that carry specialty home items.

The ones I have seen are just shallow c channel that caps over carpet edge and you scrtew it thru center to wall .Maybe 1.25" to 1.5" wide.

Thanks for suggestions guys.

Mcmaster Carr sells polished stainless J channel in 4 foot lengths. It worked perfect for carpeting walls and trim in our trailer.

I used this in my trailer... I nice bold look...and actually holds up the carpet rather that relaying the glue to hold up with all the weather changes pulling on the carpet.

Also you put it up last, so you don't have to have the edging perfect.
