'65 Tradewind lower window by door question

Doing some Airstream chores and need some guidance on a window. I know it has been answered previously but I can't find the answer.

Its the lower window by the front door of our 65 Airstream. It has a piece of thick poorly fitting Plexiglas in it and the caulk/adhesive holding it in was barely hanging on. One more road trip (vintage academy) and it was likely going to fall out.

I have taken the plexi out, cleaned up the yuck and bought a new piece of plexi to put in until new glass is inserted by the next owner.

Question? What is it held in by/with? There is no frame on this lower window and none for sale that I see at VTS. Have you made your own frames or does the right kind of window sealant keep it in.

Here is a before and during photo so you can see where I am referring to.
