Looking for Roof Seal for 2004 Rockwood

Apr 17, 2022

We are fixing some water damage on our 2004 Rockwood Freedom 2270 roof. I want to replace the seal/gasket thing, because I don’t want to clean it! I can’t find it online. Can I use a different kind? Also does anyone know a good source of parts for a Rockwood PUC? E9FD9F8B-B50F-49EF-AE88-59C4282FA381.jpeg

I have the same question, but for a Starcraft Pup. What to call it, how to measure it, etc...
I may be able to help you with that! I found this online:


So I think it’s just called “roof seal” and Its sold by the foot. I feel like I should be able to use this kind, but I was just hoping someone would say that they had switched out theirs (with the same size part that slides into the roof channel of course) with success.

I have decided to call some dealers tomorrow and see what I can track down.

Great news, please share what you find out. I looked on hannarv.com Anyway, they list a front roof seal for StarCraft as a separate item, looking at all the roof seals they look identical to me.

Were you able to track down the seal you were looking for? I have a '97 Rockwood and am looking for the exact same seal. Can't seem to find it anywhere unfortunately.

Hanna RV has 3/8" T width, my channel is about 1/2*, the existing seal is 7/16". I'm afraid it wouldn't be very tight. I'd rather get larger and cut it down, than to have it loose

Yes! I emailed Forest River. It took them a day or 2 to get me in touch with their parts representative. After a few emails back and forth I was able to order “bulb seal” by the foot (and new corner braces) and pay for expedited shipping. They are supposed to get here tomorrow!


I skipped the “find a dealer” option and just emailed them directly and it worked. But it did take some persistence. I found a dealer too, but that was moving much more slowly. I realize now that the parts person at the dealer was just going back and forth with the Forest River person anyway, so it was much easier to handle it directly!
