Question Looking for weather stripping for front windows in cab.

I own a 1986 270 costom and can't seem to find weather stripping for the side windows on the outside, they look like a rubber gasket of some kind. Every time I wash my coach or even in a heavy rain they leak. Does anyone have tip to where I might be able find some?

I just went out and checked my window and door gaskets on my 1972. Vintage Airstream Supply has lots of 50s-60s gaskets, but not that one. It has a double finger design. I bought some from Inland RV 3 years ago that exactly matched my original gasket.

its the outside vertical stripping you need or the channel stripping that hads the weep holes cut into it? If the latter i can tell you where to get a replacement.

It is the outside stripping. Fits into a channel, and has a 90 degree wing that comes off of it to seal the window from the outside elements. Over time weather has caused the rubber to become brittle. Almost all of the stripping has now lost the 90 degree angle. I can post a picture if that would help. Thank you everyone.

Steve is now stocking the window channel (Fuzzy Schegle) that we use for our MH window channels.

We have all the exterior gaskets.
