Body moulding?

I would like to put some sort of U-shaped snap on moulding around the bottom edge of my trailer's body. Is there one that can be bought at Lowe's or Home Depot that can be easily attached and cut to fit? I thought it might give it a nice finished look and eliminate those sharp edges along the bottom, especially when you are trying to remove a wheel and you arm scrapes along the fiberglass edge. Any recommendations or photos would be greatly appreciated. Thanks everyone! Filbert

go to perfect fit.com, click on weatherstrip-trims, look at quickedge edge trim, it may work. Also known as trim-lock, also available from JC Whitney and other sources and in a few different colors.

Thanks Mary and Bob, I knew there had to be more technical names than just moulding. Wow, what a great site, and some many goodies to check out. Any idea how thick our trailer bodies are? http://perfectfit.com/15976/154169/W...Quickedge.html

Us Uhaul owners use this on the outside seam where the shell halves go together. I also used it inside to trim around a cabinet opening and where I installed a dorm fridge.

I see, mine (similar to a Boler) has a metal trim where the top and bottom halves came together, but the body and door have exposed edges which are sharp and and unsightly. Now to check out the auto supply places.
