I know this is a long shot, but I'm looking for this header seal for a Hehr Jalousie window. Has anyone ever ran across it? Its 5/8" wide. I've looked everywhere on the internet, even vintage trailer supply dot com. Thanks in advance.

Frank, is that a rubber piece or metal? My only suggestion is to look at this page, about 3/4 of the way down, under Window Moldings, Top Track: http://www.interstatemetals.com/cat_windows2.htm. We have had several member that have contacted Interstate directly, perhaps you may have luck as well. I know one individual sent them a small piece of gasket material, in your case perhaps they'd be just as happy with a clear picture.

Best of luck!

Thanks Donna....Its rubber. I looked at that top track one, don't think its it. I may have to go with something like this.

http://www.technologylk.com/crl-gray-showe...-SDS600C-8.html

Which is very close, but the 5/32 tee head is a bit to large. The head on my seal is very tiny, maybe 1/16" There are some more shower sweeps out there, and one may work. I discovered the shower sweeps after I posted.

I'm just surprised I cannot find the original or a knock off of the original being the window is a Hehr.

Thanks again,
Frank

Frank,
Please let us know what you find that will work.
My '78 trillium needs those strips on all the
windows, too. Good Luck.

Can you tell for sure if that is the original profile? It looks a bit different than the header seal I'm used to seeing, and I can't figure out what the extra "grips" are for (?).

Is it for the camper in your avatar (which looks like it has sliders..)?

Is it for the small (door/stove) jalousie or the larger (dinette) one?

Raya

PS: For others looking, you might see if this matches - it's the Vintage Trailer Supply jalousie header seal:

As Donna mentioned, Interstate Metals also has a good selection of seals.

Hi Raya....I'm not sure if its original, but at my local RV supply store, they had a used Hehr window sitting around, and it had the exact same seal in it, so I'm thinking it is.

Its for a window in a 1966 Aladdin Travel Trailer, and the windows are around 16 x 20.

I'm also not sure what the extra grips are for, maybe they act as a stiffener to keep the seal at its required rear angle??

Here's an action shot.

Thanks
Frank

Good Morning,
Here is a photo of what I think is the original Trillium Hehr window gasket. I bought the rig
from the original owner and it seems that he did not replace anything on the trailer...
Much work done... some to go.

Frank,

Okay, I did not understand it was for a different type of travel trailer. That, plus your photo, explain it. (Although I'm still not convinced that is the correct gasket; look at how it distorts as it passes over the vertical member - that does not seem right.)

Larry,

That is slightly different from the Vintage one - I can see it has that "H" section at the top. I wonder if Interstate or Pellandent might have it?

Edited to add: Pellandent has some possibilities, including this "Hehr Seal" (dimensions are on the site):

Frank, when I redid my windows the part I used in this area was "Part number 009-111" from Interstate metal fabricators. It worked great on my jaloused hehr window.

I used part no 009-291 and it's perfect for my Trillium 4500 1978.
