Default Replace bottom door weather strip

The weather strip on the bottom of the door has a tear in it and I would like to replace it. It looks like I should be able to just unscrew the aluminum strip holding the vinyl and put on a new one, but I'm having a little difficulty finding one just like it. I think I found one here: Weatherstrips | Mobile Home Depot but I'll bet the shipping would be twice what the $4 strip would be. Should I be able to get one at an RV repair shop? Lowes, Home Depot don't seem to have one this basic or they have one that sticks on.

I found one at Home Depot. It was two inches longer than necessary and the rubber/vinyl sweep part was more curved, but it was quite usable after cutting to length and drilling two holes (for Hi-Lo spacing). It was in with the rest of the storm door sweep things.

Originally, I had hoped that the old sweep was replaceable in the aluminum holder (no, it didn't work that way - live and learn).

Yes, we stopped by Home Depot this morning and found one that we think will work. Will check it out tomorrow morning. Too hot out right now.

Returned the one to Home Depot. Found a Frost King model at True Value. Seemed more like the old one than the M-D brand everyone else seems to carry. Of course we did have to trim the length and drill holes.

Another idea would be to use a garage door seal moulding. These come in 6' (?) lengths and come in brown or white. They are the wooden/plastic ones with the vinyl seal running down the complete length. They are found on the outside of your garage door on the sides and top. Big box stores sell them. A former club member mounted white ones on the bottom side of the trailer top. When raising or lowering the top, it would wipe the side of the body. It also gave extra protection to the body seal. Just saying..........................
