Thanks Garth! The trim was in a standalone display of various metal moldings (all 8 ft lengths) at the end of one of the aisles, sort of between plumbing and wooden moldings -- all were extrusions of various sorts. sorry i can't be more specific than that.

The flip up counter was not original, i used the cut-out from the stove, and trimmed it up. it's just installed with hinges and a drop leaf table mechanism underneath. i decided after i put the counter in, that i wanted a bit of room on that side of the sink for clean-up and prep, and the piece from the stove cutout ended up being a nice size.

Hi Janice,

Wonderful work on the aluminum trim - inspired me to think similarly for our 5500 (has the original factory plastic stuff that will NOT stay attached). I believe you found the trim at Home Depot - do you remember which dept? When I asked about similar here, the staff looked at me as if I had grown a second head...

Is the flip up counter to the side of the sink original? My 1300 had something very similar but our 5500 does not (would be quite simple to buld however) - just curious visa-vie the other threads going with individual 5500 differences...

Kevin, just got the trailer back from the shop, so have attached some pics of the interior pieces I used the aluminum trim for. I ordered 2 sheets of Formica reproduction laminate, and have done the front/back dinette, the counter, the counter extension, backsplash, and the fridge panel. I also have plans to add laminate to the veneer panels on the walls behind the tables, and make a continuous strip around the exterior door.
Looks great Janice, nice work!. Thanks for posting the pics and the how-to's. I'm finally tackling the table and counter top today so hopefully I'll have some pics of the somewhat-near finished project by the end of the weekend.

I finally have some pictures of the table and countertop. They aren't perfect by any stretch but I'm very happy with how they turned out. In addition to the front dinette and countertop I also installed new laminate faces on the cupboards (replacing the outdated green) , added shelving to the closet, and lifted the Boler an inch and a half. My lovely wife also made new curtains to match the cupboards. All in all we are very happy with our work. I'll add more pics in the mods forum.

Wow! Do i ever love your stove fan. The tables are great too. I am just finishing my dinette and having trouble finding trim as well. I found a piece at rona but my table and drop leaf are not as thick as the trim so i will have to add some thickness to the wood or trim the trim down. I see you took out the bunk. I made my table only big enough for two place settings so i could keep the bunk. Nice work.

That looks awesome. I'm in the gut it stage and will be redoing countertops and my table as well. My husband and I were just discussing the options for the metal trim. This is great information and I'm thrilled at the photos of your kitchen! Great job.

also noticed the lack of seams in you trailer... did you fill them with latex caulking?
I like the look!

Nothing crazy, but the big one is putting in a front dinette with the two little seats (similar to several I've seen on here... very cool).

My question for now regards the aluminum table trim that came stock on my full sized table (and many, many RV tables back in the day). I'm making my own table and would like to use the same grooved aluminum trim. Is this something that can be picked up at an RV centre or is there somewhere else I should go? I'm in Calgary.

Thanks.
We found this edging at the local Co-op.
