Weather Stripping For Sunrader

Recommended Posts

Do you all have recommendations for weather stripping for the side door of a 1984 Sunrader? I have already stripped off the old seal. Curious of your recommendations of thickness, width, preferred brand.

I also am looking for this rubberized door seal.  It appears to be the same as the seal used above the rear wheel wells/fenders.

Where can we find this stuff at?

It was a custom extrusion made only for Sunrader. I have searched extensively and haven't found anything even close. If anyone finds something usable please let me know. I know lots of people looking for it.

The deal is it needs to be white. Not an easy thing to find and none I did find were even close

Linda, 

Have you found this door seal in Black?

No nothing even close. There are some flap seals in black that might be usable but they wouldn't lock in the same way. I have never taken mine off so I don't really know how they fit in. Got that pic from another member looking for it. I will tell you this. Advantage RV that still makes the fender flares for Sunraders has a tiny bit left and they the only way to get it is to buy 2 fender flares and pay for the install. He won't sell it any other way. If he can't get more no one can. Show me your door so i can see how bad it is. I'm thinking maybe you could fill the gaps with something like this

It is really hard to find - I'm looking as well if I see anything I'll let you know.

It's a custom extrusion made for Sunrader. Chance of anyone else needing the same shape is not good.

I wonder if a slew of us need it, and I'm sure there are plenty of us, if we can get it made by an extrusion company. Probably super expensive...

I'm going to guess that even if ever Sunrader owner was ready to place an order, you'd probably still not have enough orders to meet a minimum production run.

I'm not much of a business person but it comes down to if someone wants to invest the money.

Tooling + set-up cost + minimum production run = BIG $$$$$

I don't think 3D printing is a good application for long extrusions. Yet. :)

I found a part that looks similar. Do you think this could be used? May seem crazy, but maybe worth a try.

I agree, but check out what I found. I might buy a stick of it to try. 

Has anyone found the piece that seals between the cab and cabin?

Thank you Linda- how do you apply this?

I have mine but never put it on. When I took the old stuff off there was a huge gap between the cab and the coach that I had to fill before I could attach it. I have heard of people using contact cement or other types of glue. Some used a glue gun. Sometimes they applied white caulk to the edges. When I get around to mine I think I'm going to use that new flex glue. Very sticky and hold instantly. Seems to make a very strong bond. Glued the head back on my weed eater and it's still holding

Filled the gap with exterior caulk. Was white so it looked good for a while. Not white anymore. Time to finish the job

Thanks so much! 

That helps- mine is really warped. I guess I could clean and caulk over it.,...
