FW Discovery Replacment Rubber Trim

Hello,
I have a 1999 FW Discovery. There's a piece of rubber trim that's glued over the main door hinge. Has anyone come across where a replacement could be purchased? My local RV shop had no suggestions? It slides into a track on the R.side and the left is glued. I removed it a couple years ago and cleaned it completely, used some auto trim glue but that only lasted about 2 years. My RV shop said to get a strip of stainless and screw it down. BUT before doing so, I would like to get a new piece that looks better and will last another 20 years.
Any suggestions?

It almost looks like a bug seal.

Most of these vinyl, rubber or vinyl-rubber parts have to be matched up by a side profile and you will need to verify the measurements when and if you find the same shape.

There are so many types that exist or have existed that it's impossible from the photos to tell. You can try talking to REV Group to see if they even have a part number for this.

Or seek out an alternative solution.

I doubt the gluing of the edge was an original intended use of the product, sounds like Fleetwood improvised there. There are adhesives or double sided automotive tapes that would do this however.

Good luck!
