You're right Dave. It's funny how such a little change can have a big impact on the look.

You can just tuck the top or bottom edge in first, then use your finger or thumb to bend the strip into the other channel. Or, you can use a thin plastic tool, which I didn't bother with. Took about 10 minutes. Lots of colors are available. A 50' roll was perfect for the 19, with about 6-7' to spare.

Thanks for this link - awesome.

I poked around ebay and only found black, white, silver, and red.

Do you (or anyone) happen to have ebay links to any other colors?



and we'll be getting a 21'.... by math (based on what was posted above) a 50' roll might just do it..... anyone know for sure?

thanks.

The link above lists all of the styles from Keith's RV Surplus - just pick out the 1" of the same profile.

Since my graphics are black to match the truck I opted for the white band color so that the trailer does not look like 2 halves put together at the belly band. But if your truck is another color then the band color with the graphics is a great "glamping" way to accessorize. Just like the interior trim, it can hi light your formica choice.

Hi Everyone,

Now that we found out about the different belly bands colours, oh no, another decision to make.....

We really like the white, does the colour hold up, & is there any discoloration with time?

Thanks
