Jake just an FYI the tail lights linked from vintage trailer supply do not have the clear section of the license plate. I have to install a separate light for the plate.

But they are the exact replacements, worked out great.

Hi Mike:
That actually works out great, as the right one is a new replacement at some point
and has the clear licence illumination section on the bottom.
I can just switch them out, perfect, lol!

Thanks again, Jake.

Guess I should keep looking as there must be drivers side ones out there somewhere. Be happy yours came with a fridge, what a pain to install.

Jake,

I'd like to consider this Q-Trim product for the beltline of my Perris Pacer remodel. However, I found the Seachoice online wording describing the dimensions of the product confusing.

The centerline "lip" produced by the joining my top and bottom shells is approx. 1/2"W x 3/8"H (or thick). Can you tell me which of their products is the right one? Are any fasteners required?

Hello Robert:

This is the exact product I am using, and is a perfect fit for the seam on my Burro, sorry, I am not familiar with the Perris pacer?

It has double rubber like wings inside and once pushed on, actually is tough to pull off. No adhesives, or fasteners, just a real snug fit.
I also used it around the door entry frame as it was just the unfinished fiberglass, and it really finishes it off nicely.

I hope it also works for you?

(You can just see the moulding in the door frame of this picture).

Cheers, Jake.

Thanks, Jake.

Okay, I understand how this stuff works. Looks very much like that which Scamp uses to trim out their body edges. My concern is whether this trim has an opening wide enough for the joining "lips" of my Pacer... I need room in the trim for 1/4 to 3/8" thickness to be inserted to the depth of approx 1/2".

Hello again Robert:
Ok, I just measured the opening at the top (or bottom, depending how you look at it, lol) of the "U", and it is 3/8".
It will cover over up to 1/2 an inch of the seam, or depth of the seam.
So, it sounds exactly the sizing that you need.

I hope that helps?
Cheers, Jake

Robert,

If the Q-trim product is similar to the original seam trim on the U-haul, then I think it would also be similar to Trim-lok. Trim-lok comes in numerous widths and depths to suit any number of applications.

Here is a link:

Fantastic! Thanks, both.

I'm familiar with TrimLok. They seem to sell only massive quantities... min 250 feet!

Does anyone know of a reseller where smaller lengths can be bought?

Robert contact TrimLok.. they're the wholesalers and should be able to tell you the retail distributors in your area.
