Burro Window Seal

I have searched all over and can not find a seal for the windows on my Burro. It is the large one that goes on the frame where the stationary part of the window is.

Would really like to hear from someone who maybe has bought this and knows where I can get it. I've looked at many, many links and so far no luck finding a match. It's kinda outta shape but measures either 5/8ths or 3/4". Thanks for any help..... jd

Thanks but.....won

No Tom, that looks more like the smaller one that goes on the part of the window that slides. I have some of that. This one is bigger and has the extra "hump" on it. jd

Hehr 5900 Vent Seal - Window Parts

Doesn't look like Hehr glazing beads--quite? Glazing bead for Kinro windows in later Burros is a dead match for the 3/16" bead in the link above. Earlier UHaul and Burros must use something different.

Hehr or Kenro, don't know.....

Rabbit, looked at your link nothing there matches it. The 1/8" on your link appears to be the same as what Tom put up. Can't find a manufacturer's name on the windows but I believe they are original. All of the seals are shrunk so trying my best to find materials and replace them.

Still looking............Any help greatly appreciated. jd

1/8" Glass Glazing Bead H110-953

Guess not. Need a .66" to .75" section dimension. I can't find anything like what Jane has. Sorry.

Fun?????????????

It's only fun when I'm asleep! I've always enjoyed a challenge but this is about to get ridiculous. Now that the weather is warm I can't stop working on the thing. I could actually camp in it soon as I get this window seal crap overwith. jd

That 953 is about as close as I have seen. I think I'll call that company tomorrow and talk to them. I'm thinking of clipping off a piece and sending it to a few places.

When and if I find something I will post all the details cause I really don't think I'm the last person who will need this information.

Keep them cards and letters coming, PLEASE.

Thanks much, jd

Darn stuff is hard to measure even with a slide caliper because the exact line of measurement across the legs is often unclear. I think the distributors would appreciate matching to an existing sample, thereby saving aggro for both parties to the transaction.

If you're going to cut off a piece, I'd suggest sending a bit to these people, they've helped all molded owners before and have great customer service: Interstate RV Metal & Supply

Oh, Jane. I tried a couple of sample sizes of that shape glazing bead, and boy if they are just a bit off the old burro window glazing profile. Drove me crazy.

I ended up taking the bigger picture of old not-that-great windows into perspective and have sprung for new Hehr customs.

Sorry, not the answer you were looking for.
