Question Weather stripping

Ok ya all have helped me out with a part that I could not find once before here is a new one if ya are up to the challenge. The weather striping for the windows on my 1955 bubble need to be replaced. I found the striping for the door at Vintage Airstreams but alas no windows. The picture should show what it looks like. There is a section that gets sandwiched in between the window frame and the skin of the trailer. Above that there is an oval section with a spine down the center on the top. The striping is cut in the corners like a miter, and it is placed on three sides. Any ideas or sightings let me know!
Thanks! You people are the best!!

Hey Bubb,

You might try JC Whitney. They show a large selection of rubber type weather stripping in their catalog. They also offer the stuff for vintage car restorations (might be something that was used in the auto industry). I have also found a lot of that type product at McMaster Carr Supply. They have a great web

Have you tried InlandRV? Their price was $2-3/ft.
Also try the search bar for weatherstripping.
A local auto-body shop might help you, they do it all the time on cars.
Thanks for the photos.

Talking Thank you

I did some searching and I found all of my needs on Vintage Trailer Supply. It turns out that they just added a new seclection that included my year(1955). It also turns out that they are looking into some of those harder to find parts like door hinges. give them a look.
