The only glass available for the Argosy and Airstream motor homes, is the rear window, the rear wrap windows if so equipped, the driver and passenger slider windows, the windshields, and entrance door window.

The side wall windows, have not been available for several years.

Mike.

According to Airstream, no one can sell any of their windows, except themselves.

I have tried in the past to buy else where, without success.

Maybe someone can come up with "equal to's" as substitutes.

We had the pilot and co-pilot windows made for the classic motorhomes, but it had to go through Airstream, or it would have been, no dice.

Wiebe, Mike Leary put up an interesting link. It will take some evaluating to see how they can customize for you at such a distance. Guess there are a couple possibilities to explore from the responses so far. Let us know what you found/decided on.

All I know is they replaced both our windshields after a insurance claim; I have no clue if they had to deal with Airstream,but hard to believe since we got the glass in a few days. Those front (and rear wraparound) pieces are not cheap, and be pricey to ship. But, hey,you love your coach, go for it.

If that is Surrey England, it is going to be difficult and expensive. There are a couple of RV salvage yards in the US that might have them or be able to keep an eye out for you. There was one in Florida that carried salvaged glass, but I can't remember the name or the name of the thread where I read about them. Unfortunately, I didn't book mark the web site.

yes that is Surrey England...... Ideally I would combine the part(s) with the coach coming over, but first I need to find it... I will try the link above and report back.

thx for all the feedback

Wiebe

Its possible to find savaged windows etc, can anybody tell me if the shade of colour in the tinted windows has remained the same from 75- say 85? Also Have the window frame size stayed the same? I am particularly interested in the bigger square windows fitted to the argosy's with a sliding panel: have they stayed the same in the airstream motorhomes (I could always paint the frames)?

thx

Wiebe

The old Argosy motorhomes used a greenish tint in the side windows.

The Airstream motorhomes, used a grayish tint, in those same motorhomes.
