Default Replacing the rubber trim on side rails

Been looking for something to replace my 32 year old rubber that has shrunk.
Found it in vinyl on ebay for 100 feet for 20 bucks.
It's vinyl and 3/4 in wide which is what is needed for that area.
I just looked under 3/4 in rv black vinyl trim moulding. Found black and white.
It comes in one roll and is concave.
I just pinched it together and made it convex.
On our 36 footer, the top portion which is all I have done so far, took 75 feet.
Took about 40 minutes to do.
Will see how it holds up here on the Oregon coast and the trip back to Quartzsite.

Cool

For those fairly itty bitty gaps...try satin black paint on a small brush. Appy carefully. Let dry...then stand back 10'.

Some of my itty bitty gaps are 2" long

I have a few rolls of the rubber that goes in the side trim channels - but not the rubber that goes between the trim and the bus - this is just as shrunken. Anyone have a source?

I haven't taken mine off to look, but I'd like to know, too. Do you know what shape it is? Is it one giant piece from top to bottom?

FYI this is the right stuff for the side trim, it's 1/2" screw cover and it fits perfectly. Ebay link

I got some stuff for the front, but I don't have the part number handy.
