1968 Tradewind...New Window Gaskets
 
Hey guys.

I believe it is time to replace the window gaskets on my '68 Tradewind. I am having to clean water from the forward side window sills after heavy rains. I would like to address this problem ASAP.

Any opinions on the best replacement gasket for the 1968 model. Also, what is the best method for doing this job. Any help is much appreciated.

Thank you.

Try Vintage Trailer Supply or Inland RV.

The original flared gasket has done it's time.

A few years ago, we researched Airstream's "D" shaped gasket.

It proved far superior to the original gasket.

So far, thousands of owners have switched to the "D" type.
