small window parts

Hi- can anyone help me with which gaskets/seals to buy from vintage trailer supply? I need to redo my two small windows asap to get ready to store for the winter. They are the last leakers. thanks a lot.

I see quite a few window and gasket related parts on Window Gasket

Butyl tape is far superior to silicone gasket for window frame on the long run.

Yes, thanks. My problem is i don't know which ones to buy. I had an order started 2 years ago (i knew then thanks to raya) But, they were out of stock then and now i cant recall which ones they were. I needed two, the one that went behind the metal, and the one that went around the glass in the front- grey i think. I don't want to make an order mistake b/c they are expensive to ship and only come in large lengths. A shame b/c i only need 2-4 ft. oh well. If i cant get it done soon it will just be tarped for the winter. That being said it being outside all winter i may just have to tarp it period. Speaking of tarps- does anyone know what size is best to cover a trailer down to its wheels?

Im new to fiberglass campers and definitely not familiar with Bolers, but look on the Scamp web site. They sell window rubber by the foot I believe. Look at their pictures and see if its the same type material.

Cyndi, if you're asking about the gasket material for the plexiglass front window, you need both parts... the gasket and lock strip. If you're going to try to do the work yourself, be SURE to by a lock strip tool. Using screw drivers and butter knives work, but you'll swear a whole lot less if you spend the <$15 and get the tool made for the job.
