Caravan and Motorhome Seals
Over time the rubber seals and trims on your caravan or motorhome will deteriorate becoming less effective and increase the chance of issues arising from water ingress, damp or drafts. Unresolved water leaks will cause wood rot within the wall and damage behind the cladding. You can help minimise these issues by replacing your old window rubbers, habitation door seals and trims when they over compress, shrink or split. Seals Direct offer sealing solutions for most caravan or motorhome makes and models. We hold compressive stock of seals and trims suitable for windows, habitation doors, lockers, hatches, sinks, battery boxes, awnings and gutters. The majority of our seals are available by the metre and available for next working day delivery.
Rubber Seals for Caravans and Motorhomes
The window seals on your caravan or motorhome are either opening or fixed. We hold compressive stock of replacement window seals for vehicles with a wall thickness between 23mm and 40mm. Replacing these seals once damaged is essential for minimising damp and keeping your van warm and comfortable.
Habitation doors are fitted with a rubber seal to minimise drafts and water ingress. As doors are a high footfall area, these seals are often damaged and create an area for air and water to enter your van. We are able to supply replacement seals and trims for the vast majority of habitation doors.
We always recommend using high quality non-setting mastics, sealants and adhesives to ensure that any contact with water will not degrade the seal or bond. As the seals on a van flex when moving along the road, it is recommended that you use non-setting butyl mastic to ensure that the bond does not break. All of our adhesives and sealants are suitable for use on caravans or motorhomes and will provide you with a long lasting watertight solution.
Our technical drawings and data sheets allow you to compare your existing caravan or motorhome seal against an actual size drawing. This allows you to take measurements from the existing seal to ensure you are purchasing the correct replacement product.
Whilst replacing a caravan or motorhome rubber seal is considered a DIY process, it is often a daunting experience for anyone who has not done it before. Our technical help guides have been written to guide you through the process of common sealing projects you may undertake on your caravan or motorhome.

We manufacture all our profiles from high quality compounds to ensure they provide a long term sealing solution. The majority of our caravan and motorhome seals are manufactured from either sponge or solid EPDM. This material offers good UV stability, resistance to weathering and a long hardwearing life span. Our trims, such as screw cover strips and insert strips, are manufactured from PVC. PVC allows us to offer a vast selection of colours at a low cost without compromising on quality or performance.
We also use non-setting butyl mastic in a number of our caravan and motorhome window seals. This is to create a flexible bond which does not break as the caravan or motorhome travels down the road.
