Vulkem or Parbond?

On the mobile...search is limited. I read Vulkem on large seams and Parbond on small seams ... Is there preference for exterior sealing?

Around windows?
Tail lights?
Skins?

Thanks in advance! The next stage of restoration is almost underway. A few more days and the cabinets are finito!

Andy--good point. Both can be used inside and outside the Airstream?

What are you trying to seal on the inside? Or are you talking the inside of the outer skin?

We sealed the interior skins with Vulkem. Decided to use the same for the new tail light assemblies. Need to touch up a few places above the windows (exterior) and along seams of out skins. Curious if Vulkem was okay for exterior or if Parabond was preferred. Thanks for the reply!

Both sealers are used on the outside.

Vulkem for large seams and Parbond for small seams.
