1967 overlander curved window

I bought a small curved window from Inland. i just got around to putting it in and it bulges in the middle and doesn't touch the gasket. The window looks the same on both ends, but I am wondering if there is a wrong way to put it in? Or could the window be defective? I checked the contour of the trailer and it is fine.
All the other windows went in fine and don't bulge.

I have purchased 4 curved windows from Inland, 1 large and 3 small,for my 68 Trade Wind. I did notice slight variations in the fit, with one having a little more curve. I used new gaskets and they all sealed OK but they are not as tight in the curved area as on the bottom. If you used new gaskets one option would be to add a layer of thin double sided foam tape under the gaskets along the sides to give them more height and make the seal tighter

You might want to give Inland a call since that is where you bought the window. They are great in explaining how to install various items and may have a "trick" for you to make a good fit.
