In need of a window

Hi, I am a new member and a first time Airstream owner. We recently purchased a 56' Flying Cloud barn find. There is a window missing on the rear behind the door, can anyone tell me where I may find one ?
Thanks,

Are you missing the glass only, or the sash as well? Or the complete frame/sash/glass assembly?

"Hehr Standard" windows, which is the brand and model your AS has as original equipment, do come up fairly regularly on eBay. Set up an eBay search for Hehr Standard window and check it daily. It may be there now, or it may take a ~good while~ to see the exact size you need but it will be there eventually. Prices trend from just under a $100 each for a small size Hehr Standard to ~$300 for the largest ones. Condition varies, of course. Btw, although Hehr is still a major player in the RV windows business, no new Hehr Standard windows have been made by them for a VERY, VERY long time, nor did Hehr keep any of the dies to make replacements. Another source may be by contacting the reputable rebuilders like Frank Yensan at http://frankstrailerworksblog.blogspot.com/ One more thought, occasionally, on the eBay Hehr Standard results you will see a post by a person who rebuilds them for about $250-$300 so if you contact that person, they may be able to supply you with what you need, and if you have any part of the missing window, then that can only help. Good luck!

Hi, The sash is missing although I do have the top piece that slides in the pocket and attaches to the top of the sash.

Hi, I have the piece that slides into the pocket and rivets to the sash, so all I need is the sash itself.
