Sign me up for a set for my 370, plus another 8 pieces for my 325 (which is not a typical 325). Thanks for your efforts!

I just checked my 74 Argosy and the slider windows don't appear to use the plastic track insert. I then checked Peanut which is a 77 Argosy and didn't see the plastic slider either. Plus I have a slider from a 78 Argosy that doesn't have the plastic slider. So it would appear that all of the Argosy line did not use the plastic slider insert.

However, I don't think Airstream changed the window frames and I wouldn't be surprised if the seal and slider components from the later models could be retrofitted into the Argosies.

I have a windows from an 86 345 that I can use to compare the frame construction to my Argosy. I'll try and do a compare in the next week or so. It would be nice to know there are alternatives for repairing these windows.

I don't think my 250 has the plastic slide. It has the fuzzy schegel channel, but I think Out of Doors mart sold a better replacement product that Inland (IMHO). They also have the weep hole covers.

Out of interest, and not wanted to go off topic, but has anyone ever successfully refurbished the window handle/lock with the pillar system. Some of mine are only juts functional

I am very interested in a set for my 1984 310 - thanks for taking this on! I don't think A/S was thinking 30+ years down the line when they were constructing these shiny silver tubes...

Meaning for all the windows in the 310, BTW...

Extrusions? ?

Since Izzy (1975 Argosy) does not have the channels, I have not seen them, but if they can be extruded that might be the best way to go. Extrusion dies are relatively cheap to make and the cost of the parts produced would be low. We injection mold, but do not extrude, but if you Classic owners can find a sympathetic extruder it might be a good route.
