front window for '72 Ambassador

I need a used front window and frame for my 72 29' Ambassador. Can anyone tell me where to look and how much I should pay?

You do know you can still get new ones from your local airstream dealer?

Meddle not in the affairs of dragons, for you are crunchy, and taste good with ketchup.

It could be a long wait for a used window to fit your vintage model. It would mean that someone else is dismantling a trailer that is a very close match to yours, which doesn't happy very frequently. And if they're not local to you, there would be shipping fees.

We needed a replacement for one of the curved front windows on our '71 Tradewind and bought it through Inland RV. Models change enough that we needed to do some slight modifications to our trailer's window frame so that our model specific replacement window would fit without gaps.

Consider buying a new window, unless you don't mind a long, long wait.
