    I need to replace the gray gasket material that is at the top of my lower door and the top of the upper door. It appears to be the same material so maybe you can buy a roll of it to cut to size? I have tried googling for it but no luck. I'm hoping I can find it online. Anybody know of a source or even what it's "officially" called so my google searches are successful? TIA

    Look at camper shell or camper topper tape. Maybe larger than you need, but very handy and easy to cut.

    Any RV dealer should have what you're looking for. If you want to buy online, you might check Camping World or Trailside RV.

    Good luck. [:)C]

    I also need the weather stripping so I called my local RV dealer to see if they had any in stock. They told me I had to send a picture to them to see if they had the correct product in stock. Apparently, there is more than one type depending on if you have a channel or not, so you will need to know exactly which type of stripping you will need.

    Mine looks like this:

    Yep. Thanks, I've already checked them out. I am lucky enough to have several RV dealers 20 minutes or less away and another RV service center a couple miles down the road. I few months ago I saw one of them had some weather stripping on the shelf. Between the three of them, I am trying to figure out at which one I saw it.

    I always give my local guys the first chance for my business but have Robert's on my list if the locals fail me. Robert's has the best website I have seen as far as information for my pup. Love their "Tutorials" section.

    My local RV dealer said that they have some in stock that I will be picking up today or tomorrow. They said they have three colors in stock - white, black and beige (no gray). They said that it comes in a 12(?) foot roll for about $12. It's more than I need, but it seems that more is better in my case. I keep damaging the stripping because I am constantly opening and closing the travel door while the top is down.

    UPDATE:
    Good news - I went to the RV dealer to pick up the 12 feet of weather stripping the service guy described in our exchange of phone calls and emails and said he had in stock.
    Bad news - It was the WRONG STUFF!!:mad: I don't know how he could not tell that the pictures I sent did not look like the product on his shelf. DUHHHH!!!!
    Good news - On the shelf behind me, kind of hidden from view, was the CORRECT ONE! The correct product comes in two foot strips that can be cut to length (approx. 21 inches). I bought two.:)
    Bad news - The pup in now in Wisconsin, stored for the winter.:(
    Good news - I will replace the weather stripping in the spring and now have something to look forward to for the next six freakin' long and cold months!o_O

    I was able to find the replacement for mine, exact fit on a 1991 Jayco at http://www.canvasreplacements.com. Hope this helps, if you call them the lady there has catalog for the manufacturer and is able to drop ship anything. She was able to find some pretty rare items.
