Diplomat Weatherstripping

Anyone know a source for the entry door weather stripping on a 2000 diplomat? I've been looking to replace mine but am having trouble finding a match (or even coming close)

Thanks.

Bolt circle on a Roadmaster RR8R

Hi all. We've bought a 2000 Monaco Diplomat 38a and I would like to put Alcoa rims on it. Does anyone know the bolt circle? We pick up the coach this week or I'd measure it myself.

Thanks.
