Exclamation Help identifying Window trim

I have a 1979 Boler 13 footer with a sliding rear window. I have two pieces of trim that I am trying to find. I am really hoping the super sleuths here can ID these.

Here is a picture of the window frame with nothing in place. The bottom goes towards the outside and the top goes toward the trailer interior. There are three grooves in the frame. The bottom one is for the first piece of trim I am trying to ID. The second groove in the middle is for the felt sliding window track. The third groove is for a piece of soft plastic trim that I am trying to ID:

The dimensions are approximately 11/16 inch wide at the top, the bulb is about 1/4 inch wide and fits a 3/8 inch deep channel. The tongue part partially covers the felt sliding window track but doesn't quite reach the window itself:

Finally, here is the flexible plastic trim. It goes all the way around the frame in the outer groove closest to the interior of the trailer. It is flat with two splines coming off of it. The wide part measures about 3/8 inch and the splines are i/4 inch deep.
Here is the end of the piece:

Any help identifying would be appreciated. I will be extremely grateful if someone could tell me where I can buy these! Thanks for the assistance.

Rubber for windows

Here in Ontario and I am sure you have the same, RV stores that have on line catalogues where they have a rubber section. Also check rv scrap sites. They may be able to help you.

Hello Alex,

It would help in tracking down the trim if you could determine the brand, series and/or model info. On the Hehr sliding windows on our Boler 17, this info is stamped on the outside edge that's not visible when the window is installed. We did eventually purchase seals for those windows.

John, there are no marks what so ever stamped on the window. I couldn't find anything like it shown on Vintage Trailer Gaskets site for any of the brands they have pictures for and am communicating with Robert to see what they can do for me. I've looked across the internet with no luck so far. I was hoping one of the Boler gurus here could inform me but no replies yet.

Alex, the trim with the bulb in your second and third pics could be this item at Pelland Enterprises:

Pelland Enterprises Motor Home Products - Pelland Enterprises

It is Hehr part number 009-057 aka H009-057. You can also google this part number and see that several other companies sell it.

For our windows, we figured out several part numbers that appeared to be likely candidates and then contacted three companies (Pelland, All-Rite, Vintage Trailer Gaskets) for samples to check fit.

John, that is close but the top of mine is flat without the extra material on top and the bulb doesn't extend as far.
