Did these do-hicky-thingma-bob's come standard?

Not sure what to call the wheel well trim in this pic? Do you know what to call it? I don't think it came standard on this trailer, So I am thinking I can find it for mine. But not sure. Any suggestions on what to call it, so I can search for do-hicky-thingma-bobs for my Casita!


Cute trailer as well, but those do-hicky-thingma-bob's really really make it look neat!

Raz, Yes, it's a test and only a test. No, not really!

Doesn't the first picture look as if it didn't fully load, big grey space?

The second pic fully loaded and what I am talking about is the chrome trim stuff over the top of the wheel well.

I'm with Raz on this one. Same picture.

I suspect that they found chrome trim off a 50's era vehicle and fitted it to the FG trailer. I doubt that the Coca Cola cooler came standard, either.

Yeah, pepsi was standard, coke was an option.

Chrome trim, try an auto parts place. Maybe eBay. Better yet, ask Donna, she's into hot rods ect.

Well that is weird, because my view of pic one is of a half loaded pic! Big grey area!


Anyway, Thanks everyone for the name of what to call the stuff. I just knew I wasn't gonna find it asking for do-hicky-thingyma-bob...



I forgot, Donna is a hot rod fan! I wasn't thinking vintage, but think that's exactly what it is....... I might be able to find new, cool.... too!

Robin to me the do-hicky-thingma-bobs kind of look like someone took some nice old chrome rear bike fenders and stuck them on the trailer!!

Oh boy the funny ones are out tonight...........



Mary, I guess so since everyone else see's two of the same pic. I will check my cookies.



Speaking of tongue box, I wonder if it's used as a propane cover? Or storage box?


Again, Thanks everyone!
