Boler Drip Caps

Hi:


I have an '86 Boler that I am attempting to find a rounded corner aluminum drip cap for above the door. I just ordered a set of Dexter's in 26" that were way too long. They might have been mismarked by the distributor.



Can someone advise me what drip cap they used, the size of it and if they are satisfied with how it came out? Pictures would be great!


I don't want to keep ordering these things trial and error.



As always: Keep camping!


Thanks
Mark

I picked one up for my 73 Boler 1300 from Vintage Trailer Supply. They have them in various sizes. Haven't installed it yet but have done a test fit and it's going to work just fine for me.

Original was 28". Had to order a 28.5 " and will need to adjust a couple of holes but with a 46 year old trailer I was happy enough to find a close fit.

And just needed to follow their instructions for removing the white paint.

Does anyone have an opinion on which drip cap is better and why?

Here's a few pics for you. The VTS version is pretty much a bang on replacement for the profile on my drip cap. Paint removed from the exterior and it's buffed up. Looks pretty good.
