Door Gaskets

I need to purchase a new gasket for my 1976 AS Door. Anyone know a good source or what I should be looking for? Can I pick this up at any old RV dealer or is it a special kind? Any help would be much appreciated.
thanks,

Your entrance door gasket, is not universal.

It's unique to an Airstream.

The correct gasket is triangular shaped.

If you need a door gasket, you should check the window gaskets as well, which should all be shot unless they have been replaced.

Also check the "sewer vent pipe cover" gaskets. Latest reports say that they are good for 2 to 3 years. If that gasket is bad, rain water runs around the black pipe, thru the walls, and on to the floor, where you may not see it.
