'69 Tradewind broken curved roadside window-help please

Hey, our roadside curved window shattered back in February. We took it to a repair shop that does not deal with Airstreams, but has helped us with this one in the past.
We knew that we would be unable to get a glass window and that it would have to be Lexan.
We asked him to order it from one of the reputable companies we heard about on the forums. The first time I do not know where they ordered from but they received the wrong size. The next time they ordered from the company we asked him to.
After awhile of not getting the window the company gave him Airstreams number to call them directly. They did and 4 months later they receive the window but again it was the wrong size-too big. They contacted Airstream who told they no longer make that size. The glass shop said they could not cut it down.
Any suggestions greatly appreciated!
Thanks,
Tom and Elizabeth Curry

Hi,
I am in Greenville, SC and have several extra curved windows. What are the measurements? Are you wanting the approx 30" by 22". I don't have the exact measurement in my head. Just measure yours from window frame to window frame.

Contact me at r_whiten@hotmail.com
Rick

Sorry, but "ALL" the windows for a 1969 Airstream are available from a dealer.

However, because several different windows were used, you must be "exact" in your description.

Opening, non-opening, exact location, (front, rear, side).

Ball park, there are 3 sizes of opening windows. 20, 30 or 40 inches wide.

Then there are stack windows which are below the opening windows, same widths.

Vista view window are above those that open.

Lastly, there are 2 wing windows which are on either side of the front window, and same sizes.

A word of caution. The hinge must be changed on all the opening windows, using the original hinge in place of a hinge that's with the new window. The crazy 1969 hinge has not been available for some 40 plus years.

Glass only, has "never" been available, but the glass and sash are.
