'64 Globetrotter window glass dimensions

Hi everyone. I need to replace the glass in some of the windows in my 64 globetrotter. The windows measure about 22"x29" and I was wondering if anyone knows the exact measurements for the glass I'll need to get? I'm afraid of buying glass and being off by 1/4 inch or something. Would be my luck. Thanks in advance!

All the windows use a 20.5" tall glass, the true replacement glass is tempered and curved on the sides, flat front & rear, your 29" is correct.

The windows on place don't appear to be curved, but I'll double check. Thank you for the measurements!

Ok, sorry to be a pain. I remeasured the windows and they do appear to be about 20.5 " tall, but they are definitely less than (my original measurement) 29". They seem to be about 20.5"x 27 1/4" wide. It's hard for me to get an exact measurement of the glass because I'm not sure where the glass begins and ends under the grey glazing strip. I hope that makes sense?

So does anyone know the exact measurement of the glass for this particular window in a 64 airstream globetrotter?

Also, can somebody tell me how to/direct me to a link to remove the windows to replace the glass? I can't for the life of me figure out how to get the frame out. Thank you!

If it helps, here are a few pictures of the kind of windows I'm talking about. I need to figure out how to remove the window so I can replace the glass in the two broken windows. I just got the glazing strip, tape, seal and everything I need. I just can't figure out how to remove the window. It's probably something simple, but it's driving me a bit nuts.

My mistake, I gave you info for the 66-68 windows.
I have a 1960 myself and replaced my broken windows with a material called MAKROLON, it's a plastic thats scratch resistant, won't craze or crack, yellow, it's like LEXAN. I set it in a bed of Sikaflex, then glazed the outside with Sikaflex.
I used 1/4" thick and wow what a difference, not as much heat transfer and the sound barely penetrates the plastic.

Working through the threads I was trying to find data on the 65 Globetrotter windows, There are some windows that were replaced with plexiglas and sticky nasty silicone. A lovely job awaits me as I seek all data I can gather on the process for replacement of these windows. The types of window is flat. WIll add some photos.
