Default BMC door seal

I was not satisfied with the seal at the top or bottom, so I salvaged enough good pieces of the original to do both. A complete piece taken from the long edge for the top, and a single-splice piece for the bottom. The original adhesive was double-sided foam tape, which was not difficult to remove from the rubber and then use a new piece of the same.

I did not contact any of the old-line Wanderlodge dealers to see if they have any of the original seal or not. Someone suggested that Holland in San Diego might, and Stephen Birtles thought Bleakley might. If anyone does find some there are are probably several here who would like to know who, and how much it cost.

Below is a picture of the cross-section, as a supplement to my original line drawing.

This 2010 thread has a pic of the profile I need to reseal the door. Has anyone found a source for this?
I called Stephen at Dupree Products and he referred me to Steele Products. I have their catalog and no they don't show it.
Any help appreciated.

As Ron Ruekwald has stated a couple of times in this thread, call Parliament Motorcoach in Clearwater, FL. I did. $91 and change plus shipping for a 20' roll.

Hi folks I too am looking for the door seal pictured above. I have called Parliament evidently they are closed for business. I also tried the Blakely I believe it was called in Georgia they too are also closed it seems like all these older motorhome places are closing up shop. If anyone knows of anybody that can still get their hands on the seal I’d appreciate the tip thank you

I purchased new door seals from Coachcraft while there in October. They are the original style that were installed when new.

Dan the BB parts Guy was at the WOG rally selling parts, I purchased the entry door seal. The exact BB door seal. see pictures in post 20 & 32.
The original mfg still had the BB door seal mold, Dan bought about 1000 feet.
It's a double lip seal & it fits perfect, not sure which years but probable the 80's and 90's

I also bought a door seal kit from Dan at WOG and it works perfect and had enough left over to do it again if ever needed. Great deal from Dan if your door seal needs replaced.
