Have you tried to match it in the weather-strip material section at Home Depot, Lowes, similar?

How about an auto-body shop? Or ask them where they get their rubber.

I've had good luck 'googling' some what I'd thought were very odd-ball items and amazingly coming up with a vendor (and often the actual OEM!)

I have an 07 HR Endeavor and have the same problem. Either in the rain or when washing it, there is water running inside the door. I have it at the dealer now hopfully to be fixed along with about 24 other items. What I see is that the rain gutter dumps the water off the roof down the sid directly above the front awning. The water then runs behind the awning cover and into the top of the door. The seal must not be working but also why would you dump all the water off the roof directly above the door? Can you walk in and out of the coach when it is raining without getting wet?
Good Luck with your repair.

We had the same problem on our 07 Diplomat. DeMartini's in Wakarusa, IN added seals along the top and around the other parts of the door that were leaking air. All seems good now, but we have only been in one rain storm. Water from the roof still comes down past the entry door awning, but it doesn't come into the rig. Next we need to solve the leaking past the back of the entry door awning since it drips on us as we exit the rig during or soon after a storm. It will be nice once all of these little bugs are stamped out.

I have a 07 Camelot, & have air noise around the door -- I found that the jam on the latch side was 1/8 inch out of line & when I took the inside trim off to straighten jam, I found that there is an inch gap on top, between the door frame & coach, & that the screws on top of the outside door flange missed the coach completely -- Only silicone was holding the top -- They had to have known this when the coach was mfg -- Good quality control - Bill Willard
