    Hi.
    Does anyone know where I might get hold of new (or good second hand) door seal rubbers?
    The van is a 2000 Swift Gazelle F61 and I'm told my my local repair workshops that they are unavailable because of Elle's age.
    I find this hard to believe, many motorhome and caravans seem to have similar doors and the style has been used over the years on loads of younger units.
    Any help would be appreciated.
    Thanks. :happy:

    Possibly. My wifes cousin works for a firm in Bournemouth area that supplies all kind of rubber seals but I cant remember what its called.

    I'll give it an hour and then text him.

    They specialise in seals for Marine, Caravan, Automotive and industrial

    If you send a photo of the cross section they should be able to match it.

    Thanks Jon. Just checked the site, can't see what I need but will give them a ring this afternoon.
    Do you know if come preformed around the corners or that the rubber bends to the shape required?

    Hi Lee. Will have a look in the morning but as the rubber completely circles the whole door frame it might be difficult to get a cross sectional view, don't want to pull it apart or cut it in any way.
    Will see in the morning.
