New "D" shaped window gaskets will help, but they will not stop the cause of the problem.
Your window latches open when traveling due to vibration.
The causes of vibration, can be one or more of the following reasons.
Super heavy duty tow vehicle, excessive rated hitch bars, lack of proper running gear balance, and worn out axles.
Correcting the cause of the vibrations, will fix the window latch problem for you, along with possibly new window gaskets, as others have quoted.
