Smile Hello AirStream Friends

I have a 1966 Air Stream that I got from my dad after his passing in 1995. I have done a lot to it , new tile floor ,new refrig, new plastic water lines,Hot &Cold, new water pump,New toilet, from Thetford. Have also replaced brake magnets & shoes, made new top oblong vent, re-built window latches & cranks. I just got through removing the battery from the rear compartment to the tongue. We replaced the twin mattress with custom because of odd size,reupolstered the front couch, and the list goes on. We are now looking for two Corning glass windows, one for the bed area, and the other over the sink. My dad must have put in a acrylic window over the bed. The window over the sink got hit with a rock by who?

Hi Silver Fox,
Welcome to the forum!
You may have already looked, but Inland RV has some Lexan replacements on sale. These aren't glass, but are nearly indestructible.

Welcome to the forums. Replacements for the curved Corning windows are available from VintageTrailerSupply.com. Unless you are fortunate enough to find some from a wrecked trailer, this is the only source. for them Yes, post some pictures.
