Rear Window??

So we have been working on the windows the past few days. You can see some of our progress at the blog here

We have run into a pretty large snag. We went to make the rear window, which was missing, and realized it was not like the other windows. It almost appears to need two windows in it. One inside and one out. But that can't be right. Instead of having the normal push rods to extend it; it has holes for two hand levers inside bottom. The window fram has a hinge at the top but that also has the main gasket on it...

I can post pictures later, but I thought maybe some had knowledge about the 50's rear windows such as these. Pictures would be a blessing!

The back window is also a fire exit. It has 2 frames, the outer frame is riveted to the trailer and also has the 2 levers in the bottom. Then the inside frame has the glass in it and is hinged at the top, if there is a fire you open the latches at the bottom to get out.
I can get you pictures of mine if you need them.
Doug

I have the same window in my Liner, but it was missing the latches at the bottom. I would appreciate any pictures of the latches.

Thanks,

Bill

The latches at the bottom, on my trailer, are the same ones that are used to latch the window.

Hmmm

It sort of makes sense, but I would need to see pictures of it. If I understand correctly the interior frame (which holds the glass) is hinged at the bottom? and folds in??

Pictures will resolve it...the PO had caulked the window to oblivion so that it was hard to tell what moved where...

Thanks for getting help everyone...
