Window & door gaskets/seals for a 1969 Caravel

Hi y'all
I'm regaining some momentum on my 1969 Caravel restoration and I'm interested to know if anyone knows where to find replacement gaskets / seals for the windows and doors.
I saw quite a few at vintage rv.com but none of them seemed similar to those on my trailer.
Has anyone replaced these on their Caravel?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks,
Scott

I replaced the door and all the window gaskets with the D-shaped gasket I got from Inland RV. Vintage Trailer Supply has gaskets as well. I have ordered a lot of stuff from both companies and they are first class folks.

Sounds like Inland RV has the replacement gaskets. It's amazing to me how much information and how many resources there are for Airstreams. Awesome!

Scott,
I used the double vee gasket material from Inland, but agree with other posts that the D-shaped gaskets used on the later Airstreams is likely a better solution and should seal much better, plus it will not collect the grunge that grows so fast around here in the wet months. My experience with both vendors has been A+, same as 68 TWIND.

Thanks WLJ

I'm going to go with the D gasket.

On a separate note, did the 1970 Caravel come with that access door for the area behind the fridge or did you put that in yourself?

Your trailer looks awesome.
Scott
