You will have to make them yourself.

Go to any auto parts store and get some bulk gasket material.

We do not stock any tail light gaskets.

When I removed mine, they were set in a bed of what looked like gray, non-hardening "glazing putty" (don't know the technical term). The putty was still "workable"/soft and it seemed to have been effective. I don't know if it was original or a fix from some point in its history. I'd be interested to know what others have found and/or ended up using.
Thanks, MarkR

I've gotten the squarish "Monarch" lens gaskets from Out of Doors Mart.
Andy said to try an auto parts store. Find a store like Napa or mom/pops shop. These stores typically have a parts counter guys who may know something - not just parts counter monkey like you find at chain stores.
I would look for some gasket material that would be pliable, rubbery feeling etc....water pump gasket material. Get a sharp pen, razor knife, cutting board and a dose of patience - start tracing and trimming to fit.

My gaskets around my lights did not have anything around them as caulk---just gasket material. I found gasket material at O'Reilley's that can be cut to fit.

We have only had our Airsteam a few months. I am going to replace the gaskets and some bulbs and see how it goes. I am hoping there are no leaks around these lights to make them burn out.

Would like to do a conversion on the lights to LED for safety while traveling. I will make sure no leaks and will start the conversion during tax season (when we can't travel).
