Rubber trim availability

Attached is a diagram I tried to make of the rubber trim used on the shelving and cabinets in my '71 safari.

The bottom portion is stappled to the back of a shelf top leaving the top round part to seal the gaps between the shelf and the walls. Kind of like a rubber caulking strip.

Is this stuff available or is there some sort of replacement around?

That material is called "gimp".

Perhaps a Brand X dealer may have it.

Airstream has not used that material in many years.
