1997 Excella bedroom window blew out

We're on a trip to Missoula, We lost the rear curbside window on the road!
What are our prospects of finding some glass and hardware? The last time I contacted my dealer he said his parts book only went back to 1998. Our grandchildren will get to see our duck tape and tarp tomorrow. I have 5 other windows that are the same size, could there be a supply somewhere?
Thanks in advance I have to try to get some sleep. KCG

We just found a roadside window on our 1988 Excella shattered and need to find a replacement. We are going on a small trip this weekend, but sitting in driveway right now.

these place might have what you need:

http://airstreamsupply.com/New-Airstream-Parts/Windows
http://www.vintagetrailersupply.com/...SAAEgIv5PD_BwE

But you could possible make one from acrylic (temporary) or polycarbonate (permanent). Have a look at my current thread titled 'Thief breaks... ' about how I made one. The corner radius of all the windows is the same, and for at least the curbside windows, the screw holes are all 3/4" from the edge.

After seeing how the tempered glass shatters explosively and reading the stories of near-misses of injuries, I'm doubtful that I'll ever replace with glass again.

Hi, I just wanted to update on the trip to Missoula window PAIN!
Our local "Seattle" Dealer came through. We are now without a duct taped window!
