28' Excella window trim

I have been replacing all the dryrotted trim/seals on all the sliding windows in this ever expanding resto project have found a source for everything except the grey plastic piece that slides in last,holding the window and screen in the frame and giving them a smooth sliding surface, so the seals are nice but the window doesn't work worth a damn, anyone got any suggestions

Dean,

Apparently they are no longer available from Airstream. You're not the only one looking for the gray plastic tracks. I've been looking at alternatives but so far haven't found anything that I think would work.

If or when you come across something that works please share the info!

Good luck,

Brad
