Trailer Board Plank

Has anyone had any success buying a replacement trailer board plank from Maypole etc? It looks like everyone wants to sell me a complete new trailer board - but I just want a new plank, the wiring & lights are all great.

RIBase
Nip down to your local window/building plastics supplier, Gap/Eurocell/Roundband, they’ll have something perfect for your needs without the “Boat” premium. Ask the lads on the counter if they have any broken/chipped offcuts, or even better, try a little light skip diving.

Good news. I have found the company that makes the planks.
Bad news. Minimum order of one kilometre.

Pikey's suggestion is correct.
Failing that - a length of fence plank would do the job ..

All the fascia's and soffit's I have found so far have overlap edging and other bits of detail. If I can, I do want it to look "proper".

I've just found the maypole catalog and they do list the planks in there - will call them and see if they'll sell me just a plank.

Have also found something else that looks interesting - will order some and report back.
