Vintage Hehr Window Gaskets and Seals

Hi, I am Robert. I started Vintage Trailer Shop two years ago with the goal of recreating and producing "all" the gaskets and seals for "all" vintage (square) Hehr windows. I now have in stock all gaskets and seals for the Hehr first generation (late 40's), standard, and all Jalousie windows including the 1600, 2400, 2700, 3600, and 4900 Series. The gaskets and seals for the Hehr "awning"windows, including the Clearview 10 and Hallmark 12 and 17, will be available by the end of the year. Visit my web site at vintagetrailershop.com and check out the vintage gaskets and seals currently in stock.

Hi Robert, welcome and thanks for providing a much needed service. I have ordered several gaskets from you for my Trails West Campster windows.

I hope that someday you will be able to provide the gaskets needed for the restoration of the Trails West Campster Windows. It has been rather a challenge to find suitable replacements but I have made some progress on locating the gaskets required from various sources. The sliding windows require 6 different seal/gaskets types! What is really needed for those windows is a kit that would contain enough material to do the two sliding windows as well as the gasket for the front window. The front window gasket is the same one required for the fixed panes in the sliders. I also have available for free to anyone who wants it, including you, a file for 3D printing the small spacers that are required under the fixed pane in the slider.

I believe the windows in the Campster may well have been Hehr but the vintage is late 60s and early 70s for these windows.

I suspect that the Compact brand of trailers have a similar problem.

Hehr 2500 Slider

During the 60s, Hehr made a Series 2500 sliding window. Do you have an original gasket cross section?

I do have have original material samples. I can send you some slices of the two I can't find a good replacement for.

Plus of course I will share the information of what I did find replacements for.

I will get them mailed off to you shortly.

My trailer is a 1971 but they started making the model in 1969 which means the windows will have predated 1969 as they would have used them during the prototype phase of the project.

Seal Photo

Before you spend postage, if you could just show me via a photo what each gasket cross section looks like.
