Side window Glaze gasket

I am trying to finish a restore on a 1983 310 Motorhome. I am in need of
the glaze gasket that will work for the side cockpit windows of the motorhome.The bar that latches the sliding window shut was coming wout at the top of the driver side window and I had to remove the frame to repair it. Screws hold this bar in place and are inserted in each end of the bar through the outside of the window frame to hold the front glass (non sliding) in place.
I hope I am not the only person in the country that has ever done this.
Airstream dealers have told me this is not available and I have tried many
glass companies with no luck. Has any one removed motorhome cockpit windows and rebuilt them. I have the lip mold for the outside seal I have the fuzzy channel the glass slides in and the fuzzy sledgle that runs between the sliding glass and the non moving glass but the glazing gasket that the front
glass resides in is proving difficult to locate. My question is has anyone done this level of referb on their cockpit windows on a motorhome I need a resource for this glaze gasket. I ordered some from a dealer and it turned out to be for thinner peice of glass the stationary glass in the motorhome is
.25 inches thick and the gasket walls need to be approx 1/32" thick in order for the glass to move into place to reinstall the bar that has the sliding window latch. I can't reinstall the side window frames untill I get these reassembled. I have spent 2500 bucks on restoring the front cap new windshields and 40 bucks worth of rubber is killing my progress. I am at a loss
for a solution can anyone help with a vendor for this material ? I have even tried Andy at Inland and he emailed not available ! HELP !!
