Hi everyone,

I am getting back to restoring a 72 Raynel 11' trailer. A few years ago I pulled all the trim off the exterior and threw it away. I had gone to a RV store and bought 3 strips of drip rail to replace it. Now I am almost at the point of putting it on, but I wonder if this is the correct trim to go down the sides as well as along the top.  The gutter makes sense along the top,  but I can't quite picture it continuing down vertically on all corners. I wish I had kept some of the old trim so I knew what had been there.

If anyone can point out what shapes of trim normally would be used, it would be really appreciated.  Seems like along the bottom edge, it was a  different style.  Here is a sample of the trim I bought:

Thanks,

Drip rail going down vertically down the front and back sides only create MORE wind drag. The normal for drip trim is to add a slight taper at each end for the water to drip off, V channeling trim is then used down the front and back corners, from the top to the bottom,The V trip is intended to seal the seams.

Hope this guides you in the right direction.

Thanks Lakota! That does make sense.
