Welcome. Most of us here use Lichtsinn in Forest City, IA for parts. Search for their parts number (it's a dealer.)

If you know what the sealant is, google it and you will be surprised at the price variation.  Usually the roofing supply place have the best prices.
Just my experience with my Dutch Star.  YMMV!

Most any RV store will have the commonly used sealants. Amazon & Ebay are good sources too.

Winnebago seems to always find some obscure manufacturer to use for sealants. One of them used a few years ago was only available in Canada and would only sell in case lots. Somebody here bought a case and split it up among several of us in the board. Then Winnebago apparently 'suggested' the business not sell product to individuals so that supply line was cut.

Of course there's nothing wrong with an appropriate substitution.

Not sure if the Trend is full body paint, but but in this video Lichtsinn recommends the Winnebago sealant for non-painted, and local products for painted units.  I was a little shocked they recommend silicon for the painted units.  I assume so it can be removed and recaulked without damaging paint.
