SWISCO - The Replacement Hardware Authority

RV door trim

A quick learner from Minnesota says:
We purchased this part# 58-135 thinking it was a perfect match, however it was not. Do you have another item that is like ours, the T part needs to be rubber.

I'm not sure. It would depend on the size of your seal. Can you give me your measurements as compared to the 58-135?
A quick learner from Minnesota says:
It is identical to 58-135 (3/16x3/8) however the T part, ours is rubber. We tried installing 58-135, but the hard plastic T would not work due to not being able to be flexible. Make sense?

Thanks for clarifying. I'm afraid we do not have a version of the 58-135 with a flexible T. It is meant to be installed by sliding it in the slot from the end. Are you able to slide it in from the end?
A quick learner from Minnesota says:
We did try, and it was very hard to slide it. We got half way done with one of the sides, and it all just popped out of the slot.

Unfortunately, we don't have anything else that may work. Considering this is for an RV door, you may want to go to a store that specializes in RV replacement hardware. RVs typically have specific hardware that aren't interchangeable with normal house replacement parts. The 58-135 seems close, and I'm surprised it didn't fit, but since it can't work you may need something specifically made for an RV.
