Please read our post (above) dated 6-4 2004, regarding proper application of weatherstrip adhesive when replacing the entrance door, window, and access door gaskets.

Using substitute gaskets is not recommended. The Airstream gaskets are not only intended to seal out the weather, they also are intended to put some tension on themselves, to insure that the gasket stays sealed when hitting bumps, etc.

Contrary to opinion, the windows, main door and access doors, all move when the shell is tweaked, or when hitting larger bumps.
