Replacing damaged trim on slide-out

I was putting my trailer away for winter storage and clipped a gate.
I was wondering if this is a piece that can be ordered and replaced without to much difficulty. I tried to bend it back but it really won't straighten out. Click image for larger version

You will need to order it from Forest River/ Coachman. Here is who I contacted for the sofa air mattress.

SIMON P. MICOLA von FŁRSTENRECHT
PARTS MANAGER,
FREEDOM EXPRESS LAMINATED TRAILERS
CRV/FR DIV 220
574-825-8413 FAX 574-825-9233
SMICOLA@FORESTRIVERINC.COM

The repair will be easy. You will need a roll of butyl tape, a tube of dicor non-sag and the trim piece. Should take less than an hour.

Thank you for the information. Can that be ordered without going through a dealer?

Simon did not give me any issues about going through the dealer and allowed me to order direct. (Saved me $100 on the air Mattress.) If they are hesitant to order for you,
Tell simon that the dealer you purchased from cannot seem to locate the part and you wish to puchase direct from him.
Send him a picture of the damaged part, make, model, year of trailer and your VIN#.
Keep us posted.

I'm not sure Simon is still in that department any longer. Last August I contacted him and Tamara Tasler responded instead.
Make sure you ask what the shipping will be for the length. I didn't ask and was charged 199.00 for truck shipment on a lousy rubber seal!

I fired off an e-mail to Simon tonight so hopefully he or someone will reply. Thanks for the advice on the shipping too.

I blew a tire this past summer and Simon sent me the part I needed.
He replied to the email above just 3 weeks ago.

You may be required to through your local Forrest River dealer to have this part ordered. No doubt because of the length of the item and handling you could be looking at a freight cost anywhere from $150.00 t0 $250.00 because of the length of the item.

Good luck and don't look for a quick turn around from Forrest River.

To the OP,
Might be worth a shot. Can't beat the price. Double check size.

Thank you

Absolutely, thanks to Leland 1950 lead.
On another note Forest River contacted me this am and asked for photos. So it looks like it is being looked at. We will see how that goes. I will post the final outcome.

That is a great deal. Congrats. Did you ever get a price from Simon, curious to see what they wanted?
Keep us posted on your repair progress.

I got my estimate from Coachman. $356.60 US. I think eBay was the way to go.

From Coachman

Thank you for contacting Coachmen RV; a division of Forest River Inc.
IT WILL BE $103.60 FOR THE PART, AND ROUGHLY $250 FOR SHIPPING!

THANKS!
