    I have a 2002 Starcraft Constellation Gemini with very aged bunk seals on both ends. My dealer confirmed they can get the seals from Starcraft/Jayco, but it's only sold in a 100' roll for nearly $400!! That seems more than excessive so I'm left trying to get creative.

    The weather stripping attaches under a strip of metal and folds back slightly over the metal. Does anyone have any ideas how to create something like this?

    Also, what exactly is this weather stripping trying to seal? Is this a backup for the roof seal when the trailer is closed? Or is this to keep rain from blowing in horizontally under the beds when they're slid out? If it's just to keep the weather/bugs from getting under the bed I can get real creative, but it feels much more important if the seal is somehow responsible for keeping water out.
