Weather strip

We love our 206 LTD, but I am really disappointed with the weather strip on the top of the bottom section of the door. It is literally in pieces after minimal use. If anyone else has had the same experience, have you replaced in-kind or with something else that is more durable?

Just a few weeks ago. Seems to last about two or three years. Purchased the exact same one from Roberts sales in Denver. It's called a "Door Wipe - Gray weather stripping for travel door/entry door," cost is $4.00 plus shipping, but I had ordered some other items too. Might look online or try a local place.

It comes a bit longer, so it needs to be cut, but took about five minutes to trim and install. Do need a square driver bit. I believe all the screws on my popup are square drive.

If you raise your roof approx. 1" the rubber will last many years. If your opening the door with roof all the way down it will ruin it real quick!!

My trailer is a 2012, replaced the seal the first time this year; for $4.00, and five minutes to replace, I'll continue to replace it vs. having to release all four corner latches and raising and lowering the roof; every time I need to access something through that door. Which is very often since that is where my tire chocks, BAL leveler, and other stuff like duffle bag is placed for a trip.

Yeah Dave Robert the first 10 times I opened the pup I didn't really raise the top and it was tearing. But yes very cheap and very easy to replace. I kept the old one just in case the new one rips but now we raise the top b4 opening the door.
