Bunk end exterior seal replacement

The weather stripping around the outside of the bunk ends on my 2010 Roo is getting old and Iím afraid it wonít seal very well anymore. Would this be a good replacement? The previous owner had one strip on the front bunk replaced for some reason with something similar. It seems like an easy fix but this is going straight into winter storage and I donít want to worry about it all winter. I can just imagine myself waking up in the middle of the night in February wondering if my bunk ends are getting ruined:-(.

This repair is prompted by a wet bunk end after weeks of pouring rain. I believe it happened because the canvas got caught in the door when closing it up but I just canít be sure. Itís a new to me Roo and itís my first year storing it in the snow. I just donít want this to be ruined before I get to use it.

With something as important as the bunkends seal, I don't think I would trust anything but a factory authorized replacement. Is there a dealer nearby you could ask? Is there an rv repair center nearby?
That replacement seal you show may be perfectly fine but I would want an expert opinion before doing anything.
