This thick rubber gasket secures the triangular glass in the doors of vintage Mobile Scout trailers from 1955 into the 1960s. It will work for other shapes of glass, too. We've seen triangle windows on Air-Flo, Lincraft, Norris, and Broken Arrow Tepee trailers, too.
This one-piece gasket is designed to fit around the opening in the door and has a slot to hold the glass. It is made of gray silicone rubber so it will not shrink or dry out the way the original vinyl rubber gasket did. It is held in place in the door with silicone caulk as an adhesive. We offer an aluminum color silicone caulk that will work very well.
For this gasket to work, your door must be 1-3/8" thick and you must use 3/16" thick glass.
Order by the foot. You will receive one continuous length of gasket in the length you desire. It takes one 4-foot length to do most Mobile Scout windows, but please measure before ordering. The minimum length we sell is four feet, and cut gasket is not returnable.
We recommend the butt seam be placed half way along one of the downward sloping sides and that the seam be sealed with silicone caulk.
