Hi all,

We are looking for replacement plastic seams for our newest Trill. I explained our dilema under problem solving.

Anyone who has 1" wide and the piece that fits into the channel is 1/8" almond color and wants to get rid of them, please let me know.

Appreciate any help we can get.

Just stumbled across this information on the WWW. Some of the info applies to Bolers and some to Trilliums

[b]SEAM TAPE (Boler)

* Seam tape for sale:
The roll contains 150' and will do 4 trailers. It?s exactly like the original. Cost is $55 includes taxes and shipping and you can sell the remainder of the roll to other Bolerites.

* I've found a neat way to get rid of the seams when I redid the inside. I bought white acoustic sealer (it stays pliable and can be painted) I squeezed that on and smoothed it (water cleanup) then a second coat about 4 inches wide was put on with a wide drywall spreader. 2 days to dry then a light lemon low gloss latex paint and VOILA seams are gone, it's pliable, its clean, it's sealed and it looks better than new. Capitol Iron in Victoria has this stuff. It's made by DAP It's white acoustical sealer bar number 70798 73530.

[b]SEAM TRIM STUFF (Trillium)

* Boler tape is nothing like what is used in Trilliums. The Trillium trim can be bought through any RV dealer or Van Conversion shop. The Trillium trim snaps out of a channel.
The RV places would have it in their catalogues but they usually can't be bothered looking.
Ours is a '75 Trillium and the trim snaps on. Has your puckered? If so, take it off and let it sit in some hot water for a while. This usually works to straighten out most of the puckers although they do come back somewhat after a summer. Look at van and bus conversion shops. These places take highway coaches and turn them into motor homes. This is where we saw the trim. It is identical to what is on our Trillium.
