Question Replacement Window

Just bought a 1966 Airstream Tradewind. As I was cleaning it, the side window (over the sink) fell out & shattered. Any idea where I can get a replacement window?

Oh, and those curved windows are kind of pricey, too! (I replaced three of ours in the 67.) Inland RV has them. Vintage Trailer Supply used to stock them, too, but I think they're out of them.

The windows for the 66, 67 and 68 trailers cost a small fraction of what the windows cost from 1969 to the late 80's.

Windows do however become rather cheap, but only if you want to buy 2000 of them, or more, of the same size.

You can use Lexan. It's cheap but glass is better.

By the way, I need some of the metal clips that go on the bottom edge of the glass pane that engage the closing mechanism.

Lynn.

Some of the later trailer windows cost almost $1000.00, not installed.

Wrap windows are very expensive as well.

And then there is a supplier called SEGI.

Airstream used their windows for a short period of time, but everytime one is ordered, SEGI also charges a "setup fee", that is outrageous.
