    We have a 2004 Hymer B774 and our window trim needs replacing. We have contacted several dealers but the trim is no longer made. Has anyone else with a similar age Hymer had to source new trim and if so where from? Apparently it is possible to get a company to make a copy trim but they won't do it for 1 Motorhome so are there any of you that need new trim also?

    Did stumble upon a company that seemed to have a million and one different variants of trim and seals... and also offered custom... came across it whilst googling seal treatments...

    Can't for the life of me remember the name... but with some patience Google may be your friend :)

    ps.. UK based

    pps.. could be this one... http://www.sealsdirect.co.uk/

    We have a 2014 Hymer Exsis and it has a very similar trim to that in the front sliding window I don't think it's as thick across the top but looks the same,might be worth checking with Hymer to see if it will fit

    When we contacted Hymer initially they told us we needed to contact a main dealer and couldn't deal with them directly. :(

    Yes they are a bit tricky but I found Chris Davies at Premier Motorhomes,Chichester. Very helpful.

    I assume you've tried Peter Hambilton? I'm not sure that he would have any, but could maybe point you in the right direction

    Can Darren at Brownhills Parts Dept assist ? I've always found him to be most helpful.

    We tried him too but need to chase him up as he was going to contact Hymers and never got back to us.

    Well it looks like I need to find a few more Hymer owners in need of trim, the cost for having it made is £7-12 per meter with a minimum order of 25-50 metres, oh and don't forget the VAT!!

    Yes, they are having trouble finding any so have asked for our serial number which I emailed them yesterday. Our only hope is finding someone with some old stock. Seems crazy for an 11 year old Hymer to have parts no longer available!
