UHaul Door seal

I was looking for a cheap alternative to replace my old door seal on our CT13 and went to the scrap yard. For 20$ I got a dodge caravan sliding door seal that looks like brand new. The fit is perfect and dont have any more water coming in when raining. Only have to cut the esthetic trim on the inner side.

Just though it would help some of you Uhaul owner.

A 2003 dodge caravan. It is a perfect fit at a great price.

That looks like the same door seal that Michael M (Columbus, IN) found at Perfect Fit. He had extra, so I bought it from him and it did a great job on our VT door.

Scamp may take the same style of bulb seal, but it may use a different diameter of bulb. These seals are made in different dimensions for different applications.

Did you determine the size of the bulb by determining the depth of the door entrance by the fiberglass depth?
