Wondering if anyone has suggestions on where you can purchase the flexible plastic wood grain banding/edge trim that is around the interior end panels. This isn't the usual wood veneer glue on type but the plastic trim approx 2mm thick by 10mm wide. Mine has cracked in a few places and looking to replace it. Any leads welcome.

You'll probably find it difficult to buy a replacement with the rolled edges but you could maybe improve the appearance by covering with flat tape such as THIS.

Thanks for response Jaydug and did think about that but not sure it'll look the same and match other areas with the same edging or be as robust as its on exposed edges. I would have thought surely with so many caravans manufactured with this finish there must be a supplier for this edging?

How much do you need?  I have a roll which came from swift via my local dealer which I use to add a kitchen shelf.   The edges need a profiling tool but I didn't bother.

 

Look here at the photos of the shelf.  The trim looks the same as yours.

Hi hstephen5.

 

Thanks for your reply. This looks exactly the same trim but as you say just needs profiled. Not sure what type or where I get a profiler but I can look in to that. Im looking at probably needing around 4 to 5 metres tbh as one of the panels although its only split in a couple of places is the end panel at the lounge and it goes from floor to ceiling but I would be happy to take what you have even if just a meter or so?. I'll pay all costs of course. Thanks

Another method would be to take a trip to B&Q and have a look at some of the flexible sealants they sell for laminate flooring and the like.  These are designed to fill in gaps on laminate surfaces, I have used it myself and it is very good.  Rubbing this into the cracks and wiping smooth won't give an invisible repair but it will certainly make the cracks a lot harder to see.

It would be helpful if we knew the model and year of the caravan, please complete your profile if possible to get the best help from members. Depending on the age most Swift dealers should be able to source, I recommend someone like GW Caravans here who are quite receptive to spares (they have an online shop on ebay too) - they can usually find most bits with a serial number.

If you need that much I would go through your local dealer.  It wasn't very expensive and the dealer will be able to source the profiler for you.
