I found the wagon hatch seal at Metro. 

Here is the link:

 http://www.metrommp.com/metrocart/typedetail.cfm?ModelNumber=TS 9-12&Type=Press-On Trim Seals

This is a universal seal, but it matches 83Eagles! picture below.

This link is for a 12' section, but the eagle wagon hatch seal is about 12' 7".

I called them and they said that they would throw in the extra few inches. 

Here is the person I contacted:

Wow, that is a very good link.

For those who can't get the link to work:

I never have been able to find a hatch seal for my eagle wagon.  Was never quite sure if the jcwhitney one will fit, and I think kennedy is over priced, but that may be the only option.

I bought door seals from them. Haven't installed them yet.

It might be an idea to look at the shops that sell parts for tractors. I've noticed that a lot of aircraft tow mules (large tractors) have similar seals around their doors.

Parts for trucks. com maybe?

For what it's worth, I bought a seal from AMC Rambler and it did not fit right.  It looked like it would, so I destroyed my old seal removing it.  I had to use adhesive in the channel all the way around (not like the original) and when I was all done, there was a sizeable gap at the top in the middle and around the top corners.  Being that it was already November of last year, I used some Frost King closed cell strips to raise the new seal and take up the gap.  I suppose it works ok, but it does not cover the area where the metal/plastic interior panels meet up like the original seal.  Since I had cut it to install I could not return it.  I think the lack of availability of a proper seal is ridiculous.  Is it really that hard to make one?

Original cross-section:


AMC Rambler Parts cross-section:


Installation of new weatherstripping:











I think the Metro TS912 with a few extra inches might be a great solution, however, at $73 I'm not willing to take the chance.  I already spent $65 on the "solution" above.  However, if it did work and work well, I would undo the above and spend the money to do it right.  I would call the above a hack job and I'm not proud of it.

Hey nice job on that!!! I like what you did!

I have used that puffy weatherstrip stuff too. I like it. I used it on the tops of the door frames. That way it doesn't collect the snow between the drip rail and door. The snow would fly in to my seats. Cured!!

What an idea!  Do you have a photo?  I always end up blowing around the door gap to get the snow out before I open it.  I look like a nut case.
