Default Rear Door Leaking

We have an older Roadtrek (1991) with a leaky rear door - - - should I get additional weather stripping to try to stop it or is there a better way.

I have no experience fixing a rear door leak but my thoughts are that the weather stripping might help but probably only as a temporary fix. Summer heat might make it not stick well after a while.

If it were mine, I see if the door or latch or hinges could be adjusted to make a tighter seal. Check the door seal rubber to see if it is torn or loose. That's a heavy door.... it may have sagged a bit leaving a gap at the top.

Stop by some auto wreckers yards on your travels and see if you can get a replacement rubber door seal.

One of my side compartments leaked a little. I adjusted the lock and the latch to make it close tighter. That solved the problem.
