Thanks a million! They have "wet look" and "heavy traffic" varieties and I didn't know which was the equivalent.

Thanks again.

Before and after with the Redmax and new molding around the belly band. Pics taken indoors from same angle and lighting to see the difference.

Hi, Randy Gumpit!

I see you've got the Classic Factory Installed "Correct" Trillium door fit!
I sure wish I'd found this site before I took mine off three times...
Question: Am I looking at new striping and logos?
If so, where did you get the materials?
Is that a stripe above the belly band?
Thanks

Francesca

Yes I have the same factory misalignment. But it works. I still do not like the way the door handle has to be opened to get the door to shut. Especially with the hard to find door handles these things have. My handle works fine but just in case I bought a rebuild kit(Bargman L-400) on Ebay a couple weeks ago just in case.The logos on mine were in good shape. I did another thread on replacing the belly band and took pics of it with the stripe off. It was all dried and cracked and was a pain to get off. I used a heat gun and Goof-Off. I bought the 2" stripe and put that on when I did the belly band. I then sent it out for a new axle and just got it back. I bought the 34' molding(Ebay: search... 34' molding) but I wanted it to have a little color so I added a 3/4" pinstripe just above it. I got the 3/4" from a friend who had some lying around.2" striping link below... If you have the logos on your camper still but they are cracked. You can bring it to a sign place. With all the vinyl lettering they do now they can just trace it and make new ones. Randy

What's the name of the vinyl color you're using?

I used the Olympic Blue but I saw a post somewhere where someone said it was another color.Maybe the Vivid Blue. As far as I can tell the 2" stripes match my logos pretty well. But again my logos were in better shape than my original stripes. So maybe someone changed them before I got it.

This might be a little off topic but there are some great photos of before and afters of polishing on a variety of things from airplanes to trailers. The red boat sure looks like gelcoat to me. Amazing differences!
before & after assorted pictures of customers polished boats,cars,trucks,airplanes,wheels,mags,rims,plexi glass,lexan,aluminium.

They look nice. But I am lazy and I love the fact I don't have to spend a lot of muscle trying to polish it. Just wipe on the Redmax let it dry and repeat. I think I did mine about 5 times. In fact it dried so fast I was able to just start at one point and move around the trailer and by the time I got back to the starting point it was totally dry. Randy

I put on a couple coats of Redmax two weeks ago on the only nice weekend we've had here in Chicago for about 9 months. I used a soft lint-free towel and just rubbed it on. It dried really fast, so a couple coats were done in the time it took me to move the ladder around the trailer. Looks great! I'll put some more on later this spring. Now we'll see how it lasts.

Might consider getting a set of aluminum 14" Ford Ranger Wheels they will bolt right to it and give you a little lift..I've done that on 3 of mine so far and have pulled them several hundred miles and they are perfect..I find them on craig list usually for around $100.00 for a set of 4..I've got both types the ones they call bullet wheels which are holes and the other type they call deer foot..I really like the bullet better but the deer foot one's were so cheap I couldn't pass on them they were $50.00 for the set..Just make sure you get the center caps because they will cost you more than the rims...You can see them in some of my other post..................
