Failing a genuine Rapido part, try looking at classic car trim suppliers for generic profile seal by the metre/yard, chances are Rapido only bought in standard seals rather than had a custom one made.

Here's one of the best known companies for seals: https://www.woolies-trim.co.uk/

Google 'classic car rubber seals' for others.

Try looking at Seals Direct's website. Measure a piece of the existing profile and look through the listings until you find a good match.

purchased 12 mtre,s of rubber seal will fit it when i fold the van what i find suprising is that in 30 years you can still get seals that are the same today as when the van was made

Obviously a type of seal that has multiple applications.
