Extruded Plastics for RV Manufacturing
Recreational vehicles (RVs) are motor vehicles or trailers that include living quarters for people to sleep in while traveling. Examples include motor homes, campervans, caravans, fifth-wheel trailers, popup campers, and truck campers. As with all vehicles, RVs contain many specialized plastic parts. These must often be both lightweight and durable to optimize performance and fuel efficiency.
Custom Profiles is proud to supply custom extruded plastic products for recreational vehicle parts. We ship all over the U.S. and internationally to meet the needs of RV manufacturers, regardless of their location.

Types of Extruded Plastic Used in Recreational Vehicle Manufacturing
The key to ensuring excellent performance and cost-efficiency in the RV manufacturing process is to match the right material to the appropriate application. We can extrude any type of plastic you need to help you deliver affordable, high-end recreational vehicles to your buyers.
Some of the materials we use to manufacture RV parts include:
- Rigid vinyl: RPVC is tough and rigid under ambient conditions with high strength, good outdoor weathering characteristics, and flame-retardant properties. It’s found in interior and exterior RV paneling, piping, window frames, and other hard plastic components.
- Flexible vinyl: FPVC is soft and malleable, with numerous appearances available. This is a common material used in wiring insulation, interior trim, door sweeps, gaskets, hoses, and other rubbery RV components.
- Geloy® (acrylic-styrene-acrylonitrile): ASA is used in various RV components, including housings and profiles. Geloy is praised for its strength, rigidity, thermal stability, chemical and weather resistance, and high-gloss finish.
- Acrylonitrile butadiene styrene: ABS is an essential material in the automobile and recreational vehicle sectors, where it’s used in everything from instrument panels and consoles to headlight housings and interior trim.
How Does Plastic Extrusion for RV Materials Work?
Plastic extrusion is a high-volume manufacturing process that involves melting raw plastic material into a liquid thermoplastic. A machine feeds the plastic through a die opening, which shapes the plastic and cools it into a solid form. Numerous shapes can be made this way, including bars and rods, tubes and pipes, angular profiles, sheets, flexible films, monofilaments, and wiring insulation.
The cutting-edge machines and technology we use allow us to manufacture products with unparalleled precision to meet any application. Custom designs can range in size from 0.25 inches wide and 0.0005 inches thick to 12 inches wide and 4 inches thick. Working within these parameters, you are limited only by your imagination and the materials available.
