Trim often goes overlooked when you think about an RV. It’s not as large as the awning, nor as impressive as the beautiful exterior you chose. But without the trim, you wouldn’t be able to attach the awning and the exterior could become streaked. Trim is essential to the look and functionality of an RV, as well as to your experiences while using it. It is the trim that holds up the awning to keep you cool in the summer. It is the trim that serves as the gutter so that the exterior does not get damaged by runoff. It is the trim that runs at the top and bottom of the RV, where the side stops and the outside begins. It is the trim that makes your RV look great, whether the sides are pulled out or if it’s moving. Without this essential part, your RV just isn’t complete.
Many people think about appearance when buying or fixing up an RV, but the inside is not the only part that you want to look good. You want to feel proud of the beautiful exterior as well. Because our trim is sold in black and white, it never goes out of style and always looks amazing. Have you ever heard of the phrase “you can never wear too much black?” And have you ever seen those classic movies whose actors and actresses never seem to grow old? History has shown us over and over that too much black, or white for that matter, simply never ceases to look great. Whether the exterior is black, white, blue, or neon, black or white trim will always match and create a sleek, pulled-together look. Along with these classic color choices, there are also three different widths of trim. So, whether you just want something to cover the corners or whether you want to make a statement, we’ve got you covered.
Part of owning and using an RV is being outdoors. Relaxing outside with a cool glass of lemonade, playing games, or even simply stretching out on a lawn chair enjoying the sun are some of the best ways to spend a vacation. But what happens when it rains? Or when the sun is so bright you could get a sunburn just by walking out the door? Without trim for the awning, you would have to stay inside to be comfortable and miss the great outdoors and the adventures and experiences you could have. Our trim connects the awning so that you can connect to your outdoor adventures.
When it rains or when you wake up to dew on the ground, runoff from the water, along with any leaves, dirt, or debris from the area can run down the side of the RV, damaging the appearance. You could spend time washing it, or you could invest in a gutter trim to let the rain wash it safely. With a gutter trim, you can attach it at the top and let the water and debris slide off the roof and away from the clean sides. You will thank that gutter when you weather many storms and summers and your RV looks as wonderful as when you first bought it.
Our trim is made of powder-coated aluminum, which means not only is it flexible enough to cover all the bends and curves, it also will not rust or crack. Powder coating is considered to be the best way to decorate and protect aluminum, partially because it protects the aluminum and partially because it keeps the aluminum looking great a long time after you buy it. With normal liquid paint, you would have to worry about cracking the pain when the part is bent, which is a big concern when dealing with trim. Powder-coated trim will cover all the edges needed without having to worry about cracking and ruining the appearance of the trim.
The rust-resistant quality of aluminum also means you won’t have to worry about how many times it rains, how long it has been since you installed it, or whether or not it will need fixed when you take the cover off of it for the season. Sold along with the trim are stainless steel screws, which are also rust-resistant. With a pairing like this, rust and the damage it causes will be the furthest thing from your mind when you think about your RV.
Ease of use
Have you ever bought a gadget, opened the box, and found that the batteries were sold separately? Or tried to assemble a chair without any instructions? What a bummer, to have to go buy more just to use what you already bought or to have to ask someone else what goes where. We sell our trim as a complete package so that you can avoid this. Sold with easy-to-read instructions as well as the needed parts, when you get your hands on the package, you can get to work installing it right away. We also cut our trim down to 92 inches so that you can get it shipped to you without it costing an arm and a leg. But not only is this cost-efficient, it’s also easier to handle, which means easier and faster to install. The sooner it gets installed, the sooner you can go back to enjoying you RV.
Camping is an experience loved by many and the right equipment and accessories for your RV can make all the difference in the world. Trim, when done right, can be just the thing you need to take your RV to the next level and make your vacation an unforgettable one.
