I have a 1964 travco. The weather strip on the side windows has seen better days. I am having a hard time locating anything that comes close to the original. Its quarter round that pushes in between the window and frame. Any help would be great

That should be what you need.   take a look!  that site is great, they have pretty much everything you will need  for weatherstripping.

Do you have a photo? I have a 1964 but my windows sound very different than yours

windows are the same. There is a rubber type weather strip  Should-is the same on all 64 Travco. Thanks for the reply

I do not have rubber on my windows at all. That's why I ask. In 1965 the windows changed though. Mine are "house style" windows (hehr brand).
Check out this blog for a list of window suppliers

thanks i will look into that. Have you used the original three burner stove in you restoration? I have been looking for replacement parts. My windows I would say are also house style screwed in 

Yes I have the original 3 burner stove. Look at my website and see if they are the same windows: www.myrtleandme.blogspot.com
Also my video shows the side windows: http://youtu.be/6soFRaKHXRM

exactly the same windows. I have vent windows on the driver and pass. side

Hi Dan! Great to hear. My front and side windows are new and used to be vent windows but due to being so damaged and leaking (and no replacement parts for the sliding part) we opted to put in new sealed ones. They don't open. We got the window seal when we bought the windshields from: http://www.rvglassexperts.com 

as for the other 'house windows' we pulled everyone one of them, repaired the wood around the windows (we had pulled out most of the interior walls, at the front half), and resealed them with butyl tape and new screws. This is an example of butyl tape (most rv stores have it):

Unfortunately I did not take photos of the window restoration process.

hopefully that information helps.

Hi, just got back from the east coast. Yes I have used that tape, Very effective. I am still looking to replace the seals but have put it on the back burner. I am in the midst of choosing flooring that goes well. I am picky about how vintage it looks. Any ideas ?I have done a full restoration- well lets say I took all the flooring out down to the steel chassis and started over. Removed everything inside. Painted the chassis with epoxy laid down plastic panels 3/4 treated plywood new floor and fiberglassed it all in as original not fun. Both above and from below

We really liked the vinyl armstrong tiles. They look similar to the ones that were original in ours. You can see some photos here: http://myrtleandme.blogspot.ca/2009/07/new-floor.html
