I don't really know what to call these but I think They need to be replaced? Any suggestion as where to find them or could I use clear silicone around the windows? All of them are like this. Also if I need to replace, how do you take the frame apart? Thanks in advance for any help.

Airstream will not sell that gasket.

Simply cut part of it off and fill in the gap with Sikoflex.

Thanks Andy. That has taken some stress off the restore project, I was worried I would have to figure out how to get the frames apart it was going to be a huge mess.

Plastics and vinyls shrink in time.

Your gaskets have more than served their time.

Watch the other gaskets and when you see them moving, use the same fix.

Or, you can do the corners now and be done with it.
