Curb Side & Front Glass Window & Clips

What is the degree of the curve on this window and who has the clips at the bottom that secure it to the hand crank thingy.

Is this window suppost to be in some type of aluminum frame or is it just tempered glass ?

The front window, is it flat or curved ? Where can I get the clips at the bottom that secure it to the hand crank thingy.

Would anyone know where I could get these original pieces of glass and price ?

Looks like you have the Corning glass windows there...the good news is they are beautiful! The bad news is, they are no longer made. That's why you will find a lot of these '66-'68 trailers with Lexan or plastic in the windows. They original Corning glass windows will occaisionally come up on eBay...but get out your checkbook and be prepared for some competition!

Curb Side & Front Glass Window & Clips

Greetings Oceancontainer!

The 1966 through 1968 coaches had Owens Corning windows that have been obsolete for a number of years. Once in a great while, one might be uncovered in New Old Stock at a dealer; but beyond that new Corning windows are VERY scarce. The earliest of these coaches did not have frames along the perimeter of the glass while the later coaches did - - I am not certain but believe the progression was '66 no frame around perimeter of glass - - '67-'68 perimeter glass frame. Today, an RV salvage yard or E-Bay are the most likely sources of a Corning window to replace a broken or missing window. Many will use Lexan to replace a broken or missing Corning window either as a permanent repair or as a "make-do" until a real Corning unit can be found.

Inland RV has the clips, operators, and frames for some of the Corning windows listed in their on-line catalog that can be found at:

Good luck with your search for Corning Windows!
