What do people use to cover fiberglass edges?

Hi, just wondering if people have any suggestions for covering up the edges of fiberglass inside their trailers - ie. storage holes, cupboard areas, etc. Thanks!

P.S. I am really looking for some help on my previous question about what is on the corners of my windows. I'd like to eventually do a proper fix.

Do a search for "Trim-lok edge trim".

On square cabinet opening edges Scamp uses plastic FRP or tile board trim and it can be found at the big box stores. I helps to add a little silicone to the inside of the trim strips to keep them in place.

I second the "trim-lock" trim, I used it on our rebuild.



it's pretty easy to work with but it does have metal on the inside so you need snips to cut it and a mallet to get it locked on, I believe I bought the trim-loc to fit 1/16"

Trim-Lock works for me. I used it when I cut a new access in the bottom part of the hanging closet to dress the rough edge of the cutout.

I found the best quality “Trim Lock” trim was manufactured by Taco Marine / Flex Trim. It is not inexpensive, but is a decent quality. I purchased some by an off brand that was miserable. The color of that off brand was sold as white, but was an odd semi transparent gray-ish, and it didn’t want to stay crimped on the fiberglass edges, so off it went to the garbage.

Note that you’ll need to purchase different width channels to accommodate the varying depths of fiberglass where you will be using it. I have some 1/8” and some 1/4”. And the 25’ rolls do not go far ...

Where the wood supports are glassed to the fiberglass, I used my multi tool to notch down a bit, so the flex trim channel would fit over it.

I also tried the more rigid lengths of door trim sold for car doors, but much preferred the look of the flex trim.

+1 on the Taco Marine Flex Trim. That's what I used, and it's a great product.

I used Trim-Lock as well that I ordered from McMaster-Carr on the roof tent of my Land Rover Defender.
