Kitchen Counter Backsplash Trim

During the build process we selected a white counter top (Formica - White Twill) knowing that we would want to replace the beige screw caps and beige trim on the backsplash with white.

Screw Caps - ETI was able to provide a link to the screw caps they use (12/12 Snap-Caps - for #10, #12 & 1/4" screws | Pro-Dec), and it look like Home Depot stocks a comparable product which would make this a quick and easy fix (https://www.homedepot.ca/en/home/p.1...000163037.html).

Backsplash Trim - We spent quite a while trying to source white trim during the build process without any luck. ETI provided the picture below with the measurements of the stock trim, but were unable to provide the manufacturer's name. We received our final build pictures yesterday, which has renewed our interest in finding a white trim. Has anyone determined the manufacturer of the stock trim, or found a suitable replacement?

Sorry you did not get any replys in the past few days....that does not happen often.

I will be recovering my counter top in black and will have to come up with something as well.

The best I can suggest is a paint designed for plastic like Fusion. It comes in gloss or flat white. This way there is no chance of chipping the backsplash. As shown in the picture it would be real easy to tape/paper it off as on both the front and the back you can just side it behind for a super clean job.

Would something like this possibly work? Deeper profile though.

Thank you for the ideas!

We made a quick trip to Home Depot to pick up the screw covers this morning. It turns out they are the same brand as ETI uses (Pro-Dec Snap Caps). Will be able to pop the old ones off and the new ones on before leaving ETI!

Anyone with the standard counter top that does not like the caps...just remove them and the screws. I did this shortly after I got the trailer this spring and the back splash is still strongly attached. They must use them to hold it to the wall while the glue sets. If I was keeping the top and back splash I would fill the holes with silicone.

There are 3 holes in the photo which the camera really brings to notice. Normally just walking by you don’t see them.

The first Escape Pod modification was a success! We spent a few minutes replacing the tan screw caps with the white ones from Home Depot. Significant improvement for $5!

I wanted a black trim around the backsplash as I felt that would look better than the wood color that ETI uses. I've not really looked around for one, though. I did replace the screw cap covers almost immediately. I replaced them throughout the trailer with different colors in different "rooms". It was loads of fun picking the colors. I ordered them online.


Royal blue in the kitchen area (both sides), black in the dining/lounge area, light teal in the bedroom area (goes with the curtain in there), grey in the bathroom and burgundy in the entry way. I even replaced the ones inside the cabinets and on the storage bin outside (royal blue). Yeah, tan was out.



The lighting is off a bit - the countertop is the black granite coloring that many others have picked. (Cellular shades added by us; grey/white/black Peel & Stick backing added by me; stovetop cover made by Dirk)

I don't mind the button color....I also added a backsplash behind the stove area from kitchen window all the way right, and on the wood wardrobe wall--I used the leftover formica eti provided me. I love it--so easy to clean and i don't worry about spashes/stains on the vinyl wall covering.

Looks great - I like the contrasting blue screw cap covers. We should have went with blue to match our Blazing Blue Tacoma! We would like to change the trim around the backsplash to white, but are a lot less fussed after replacing the screw caps.

The cellular blinds look great as well! Are they RV specific in that they have guide strings, or are they more residential?
