1962 tradewind restoration

I am new to this site and airstream ownership and am looking for some guidance. My 1962 Tradewind needs a total overhaul, first I am looking to make it weather friendly or resistant, whatever you prefer. Would anyone know how to find replacement windows and doors>

Proper gaskets will take care of the weather proofing, at least for the windows and doors.

Thank you, I will have to keep that in mind when I have windows and doors!!!! I am looking for glass and doors to put on and in my airstream. Currently there is no door and four windows are missing, the front, front driver side, bedroom driver side, passenger crank window.

Are the window frames there? if so, you can get regular glass cut to fit them at your local hardware store, secondly, if you have the frames, Vintage Trailer Supply has everything you need to overhaul your windows on your trailer year. If you are missing frames, that is going to be a challenge to find them, I suspect the door will be a major challenge, since your rig would have had the door within a door configuration.
