Vinyl Molding for Bigfoot 2500

Hello All,

I want to share a bit of knowledge that might be helpful to many.

My 1996 Bigfoot 2500 had a problem where the vinyl molding running all the way around, where the two halves are screwed together, was falling out. The old stuff was all dried up and shrunk.

Actually replacing this stuff is not difficult, the hard part is finding the right molding. They come in different sizes and different shapes, you know. I measured my width to be 7/8 inch.

I ordered 50 feet of some stuff that seemed like it would work. It fit PERFECTLY - woohoo!

So the stuff is from Factory RV Surplus in Elkhart Indiana (no, I have no affiliation with them).

The "Item Code" is X-D946-1W
The Description is "Screw Cover, #30 White, Flexible"

Price was thirty cents a foot. Oh, from my 50', I had 2' left over - cut it pretty close. And that was without any major mistakes. So that was $15 for the molding and $12.48 for shipping, for a total of $27.48.

I spent three hours on the job, starting with scrubbing the channel with a fingernail brush and hot soapy water. Pictures attached.

See you out there somewhere,
Thumper

I wonder if this is the same stuff used on an all molded towable Bigfoot? Any Bigfoot trailer folks know? If so, thanks for sharing the information

Hmm, looks great! Thumper, does this stuff have a profile like a bowler hat or a cymbal? It looks like it may work on my old trailer

Well Burrfoot, I measured the metal channel itself that the trim fist into. Mine measures 2 1/4 inch across, with the opening measuring 5/8".

And yes, it is crowned. This link shows the cross section: - XD946-1W White Screw Cover - Price: $0.30 - Factory RV Surplus - 1611 W Bristol St, Elkhart, IN 46514 (800) 325-1461 (574) 262-3327

I'm afraid in my initial post I didn't have the item number quite right - here it is again: XD946-1W.

Cheers,
Thumper

The gap on my '81 B16 measures the same (1 1/4 across, gap about 5/8). I imagine Bigfoot went for a standard gap size so they could use the same stuff on all their trailers. I'm ordering some!

slight mistake

I made a mistake - the channel is 1 1/4 inch wide, not 2 1/4. Burrfoot seemed to figure this out!

Here are two more pics, one just to show the good fit and one attempting to show the measurement.

this looks exactly like what is on my 30C10.11FR, Can someone help me confirm so I can order the correct trim to replace? Thanks!
