Bunk end sweeps

Need advice on replacing my bunk end sweeps.
Suggestions? Looks hard to do.

Not sure what a 'Bunk End Sweep' is, but it may help if you put the make and model of your RV in your post or at least in your profile, so we could look it up.

Hopefully someone will come along and help you out.

Please post pics of the seals.
I owned two Popups and a hybrid. I know what a hybrid bunk end seal is but not sure what you're calling that on a popup.

Are you talking about the plastic strip attached to the bunk end that holds the fabric of the tent in place?

If so it is available for forest river for less than $5. Contact their customer service and tell them year/make/model and serial number and they can help.

No, it’s the plastic (brown) seal that keeps the bugs out. It’s under the bunk.

Again, contact Forest River. The people who made it. They are really good at knowing Exactly what you need and getting you that part.

I have purchased multiple items that were made for my camper from them and found them very reasonable.

Unbelievable the fan/light combo that others sell knock off units of cost less for the original from them?!?!?

Contact the appropriate email I posted above for your make and tell them year, make, model and serial number and a description with PIC of what you need.

As far as bugs go.... nothing keeps bugs out completed. It is not sealed 100%. My tents that I go camping on the ground in are better "sealed" than my 2016 popup.

Here is a list of parts I have gotten in this post:

EDIT:
If you want to repel insects take a look at this stuff. I camped on a scout summer camp in an old army canvas tent that did not seal at all. I sprayed this around the perimeter ground and on the tent and wood. Nothing came inside unless if flew and I had mosquito net for that:

I am NOT saying spray it on your tent, but the openings.

ah - i know what you are talking about now! it is a flexible brown vinyl piece that attaches to the wall just under the beds, have no idea what it is called though. if Forest River can not get you the piece, i would take it to Lowes/home Depot type of store and find something close that will do the job. There is nothing magic about it.

Yes! That is it!!
I’ve sent a message to Forrest River. I actually looked at Lowe’s but was unsure if I should use something else.
Thank everyone so much for the advice!
