Thought I'd chime in here. My 1965 Caravel has a jalouse window in the door. Which means that I have no screen door. The 1965 Caravels without the door window will have or should have a screen door. Truthfully, I'd rather have a screen door than a window.

clear door window for trailers?

Our new AS trailer comes with an opaque glass or plastic window on the door. This is disappointing because the only other window in the living/kitchen area that looks to the street side is one next to the stove. Ours is a 25FB model.

It would be nice to have a replacement window that is clear for more light and visibility. Is this available or should I seek help from a custom glass fabricator?

hi myoung and others....

yes a clear glass window is a available...the frosted opaque is a newer feature...i don't like it either...can't see out but people can still see in...and no true shade.

i'd prefer the old style clear glass with a full shade...but that's not available for the newer units...

i'm pretty sure replacement involves removing the window frame (the riveted part) and replacing the entire unit, sealant, rivets and so on. this is done by factory guys or dealers with full body shops....not just a glass guy.

they is a lot of torque/twisting potential in the door and lot of vibration/shaking forcees transmitted with opening/closing and so on...i would not want this work done by just anyone... and i'd be reluctant to swap windows just to get different glass.

Don, I saw the photo, and I think maybe it is too small. Can you post back how it is working out after a few trips with it?

Meddle not in the affairs of dragons, for you are crunchy, and taste good with ketchup.
