Hi all.
As I was driving last week,a piece of trim fell from the overhead front of the camper.
I only got a quick look as it flashed by the side window.
It's from what I assume is an awning rail that on the front overhead bed. I have included photos.
Any guide to where I could source the trim and what's the rail on the front of the camper for anyway!

Thanks.
Is there only one piece of trim missing so,you can see a piece left on one of the photos, or is there two trims, one covering the screws and a larger one to go into the channel?

The two trims are the same one but the one across the front is missing an end cap plus the insert.

the end cap and the cover trim is missing. They shrink and harden with time in the sun. Shouldn't be expensive to replace

Caravan screw trim strip or similar wording - cheapest is black and other generic colours cost more - purely decorative and the sun plays merry hell with it - my van hit 30 this year but had flailing bits of screw cover hanging off over the last three years or so. I bought a roll off amazon and have to refit it - apparently there is a tool...

refitting is easy enough with a bucket of hot water to put the length of trim in to soften before you start. When it's cold, it can be a real sod to get in
