Window sizes

Can anyone tell me where I can find the "Specs" for different Airstreams, mainly window sizes? I would like to have them for making different variety of curtains.
Thank you!

Hi Tammy -- The number of years, models, lengths, different suppliers, etc is too much to get arms around. It would descend into chaos I am afraid. Andy at Inland RV probably has been around long enough that he'd have a seat of the pants idea. It's just so much easier to measure off of a specific job. Airstream would probably give you a "" expression -- doubt they have such info all in one place. Several years back I dealt with Ambruso drapes -- they asked for model but especially wanted precise track length measurements. Being hand installed the tracks would be a different distance apart at one end compared to the other -- which I'm sure you've seen!

Glad to have you here as a resource! Thanks!!

Thanks, Bob. That is the way I had been doing it. I just figured that most of the windows would be the same on each brand. But then again, I had 2 MH's, same year, different sizes. i guess it depended on who was working that day and how thourough they did their job. Thanks anyway!

I had another thought at the gym just now. A good way to see a variety of 1970s, '80s & '90s Airstreams would be to take a tapemeasure to a Forums rally -- it's an all around good time anyway.

Kinda sorta related, but I wondered if someone is working on a database to hold all kinds of specs for all years of the Airstream. Certainly a need for such a tool. It could group years, place of origin, internal specs with measurements and reference photos of original configurations.
Your windows would just be one small aspect of the large collection of data.
I've seen a few sites that tell you general information, such as
Vintage Airstream Photo Archives
but we could use the nitty gritty. A few rallies and some data collection would get a large chunk.
Maybe should be a new thread.
