Drip Rails for RVs and Cars

A drip rail molding is a protective accessory designed to prevent water and moisture from dripping down the side of a vehicle. They are typically installed along the edges of the roof, and around doors and windows, to serve as a barrier that directs water away from the entering the interior.
