Default Rust showing thru RT body seam

Hi, My Chevy RT vertical body seam (aft of the driver door) is rusting a bit.

Product suggestions to re-caulk the old black caulked seam?

Thanks!

Look for RQR Rust preventative a paint that binds with rust and restores metal strength. Pretty amazing stuff. Expensive for small can but goes a long way. I was impressed with how it strengthened, protected and restored my underbelly rusty parts on 20 yo RT. Learned about it from neighbor who restores old cars. Good luck.

What Roadtrek model do you have? The 210 model with fiberglass shell is known for separation at the door seam. I had mine repaired at a body shop. First repair cracked again. They used a different bonding material the next time and it has held for 2 years.
