Where is the best place to order parts from? I would like to try getting the window levers, different screen and stuff to try out this conversion.

I emailed the local Airstream dealer and they said that the window can't be operated with only one arm. I wouldn't mind giving it a try though. Even if I can only really open it to the first position, that would be ok.

Thanks!

Jason

Can you please provide a link where these items can be purchased?

We open it and use the wheel chocks to keep it open. Insert the narrow corner in the gutter of the window frame and let the window lie over the flat end. Never had a problem of the wind taking it appart...

I agree with you Jason, that's exactly what I intend to do with our back window. On the 20 footer, the bathroom wall is built over the right side of the window frame so I'm going to buy the parts and have someone router the left side of the frame and hopefully it will at least allow us to open and close the window similar to the rest of the windows in the trailer.
Good luck with your window

Question Parts for modifying the rear escape hatch to open from the inside for ventilation

I am also interested in doing this rear window upgrade and would like to order the lifting arm and parts to do this modification on my 2007 AS Bambi 19'. It appears that part of the window frame is buried under the bathroom exterior wall next to the corner bed. I wonder if there are screws under the paneling on the window frame? If anyone finds out where to order the parts and installation instructions, please post them. We need someone to post with experience in doing this modification.
Thanks,
Ken
