sourcing entry door seals for a '64 Globetrotter

I need to replace the door seal on my Globetrotter, and have tried a couple of things already with limited success. It looks like a 9/16" L shaped gasket, 3x8" on each leg of the el, and that would compress from 3/8 to 3/16, would work the best. I bought two products from two different vendors, and neither product fit, or rather, allowed the door to shut with the seals in place.

I think my door is little sprung, out at the top and the bottom, so I'm thinking that if the gasket was thick but compressible, it might fill the wider gaps?

Any thoughts would be great

thanks

Peter

Hi. I'm having the same problem and was wondering if you found a solution? I've been looking at parts on VTS and other sites, and all the door seals seem to work for trailers up to 1963 and others work for trailers from the 70s on, but I can't find any that say they work for a 1964 globetrotter. If anyone can point me in the right direction, I'd greatly appreciate it. I need a seal for the door as well as for the door within the door. Thanks!

Is a '64 the same as a '62? I know the 63 inner door hinge is an oddity and they went back to the old style in '64. You may have luck with a '62 gasket.

It's worth a try! I haven't been able to find any other information, and I'm going to try that out. I'll let y'all know if it works out. Thank you!
