...yeah you need to know it's thickness when compressed to fit your hatch properly...we used a 1/2" wide closed cell foam "D" profile with a self-adhesive...it compresses down to 1/8"

...just a tip to everyone...a well stocked hardware or even box store is going to carry a wide range of weatherstripping so check 'em out before spending money on shipping...there are many types most of which can be adapted to fit your needs(probably)

Eddy, I think I got out of there just in time. I was down there May 19-30. I looked for you at Safeway one Saturday night (20th?) but you didn't come that night. I did meet SSR Jim who was kind enough to give me a tour of his tear. Another from your group of teardroppers gave me a tour of his tear and had an idea for a table (his had an umbrella) I may use.
Sorry I missed you, but I'm glad I left before it got above 107*. :fan:

I ordered type 3 and 4 should arrive today. I see which one works the best. Bledsoe I haven't been out since I damaged my trailer when I broke down in Kingman, Arizona but taking off today to go camping for the weekend and the trailer is all repaired. Still need to buy another driveshaft for my pickup so we are taking the wifes Nissan Titan. I'll catch up with you at Pamplin Bledsoe.
