I got my replacement gaskets at Out of Doors Mart in Colfax, NC.

Vintage Trailer Supply also has lots of gaskets for a variety of windows (link is below.) I am not sure for your trailer if it's a one size fits all types of window. I have 3 different window styles in my '59, but I can't speak to your year.

Window Gasket

Good Luck!

Parts stocking dealers can help you.

Also, there is an upgrade gasket that is far superior to the original.

Andy are you referring to the D style gaskets? Are they superior because they last longer and/or create a better seal?

If you are talking about the grey vinyl gasket the window glass sits in, it is not available.

The "D" gasket should last longer, plus it provides a better seal.

Actually, I got a roll of it from CRL just last year. But I agree, it is hard to buy retail.

We're mixing apples and oranges, folks. What Andy has is a much improved weather seal (the "D" gasket) for the opener windows.

I'm talking about the vinyl "U" gasket that holds the double glass panes in the window frame. It's CRL's WV3866 glazing adapter. This gasket is 5/8" wide. It goes on rather loose and is a struggle to keep in place while the frame is being put back on, but once the frame is on, it seems to fit and I haven't had any leaks.

If you use the link from post #5 above, you can navigate to this CRL 1/2" glazing vinyl. It might be a better fit for the double pane panels in the opener windows. I just took a quick measurement of one opener and the thickness of the double pane panel is 0.515".

Zepp is right!!!

The "U" gaskets are available from CRL. That's where I bought mine. What a lifesaver....;-)
