'72 Argosy windows

Can someone tell me if the flat front window and the rear window are frameless or should they have frames. Not sure if mine is original or not with the frameless windows. If they are supposed to be framed, where can I get them?

Also, what about gasket/weatherstripping material? Style and size?

One of the side windows (driver side) has a bb pellet through it. Who, where, get replacement?

They all were framed windows. I believe that they are still readily available as they were identical to the Airstreams of the era. You will also need the support arms and support plastic parts to hold the window up.

Any stocking Airstream dealer could get them for you. Also Inland RV and Out of Doors Mart would have them. Same for the side windows, and gaskets.

You also might consider seeing if anyone has any for sale from a parts unit. They will not be cheap new, used might save you a lot of money. Look at or advertise in the Airstream Forums Classified section.

Some Argosy front and rear windows were flat sashless windows. Our 1972 Argosy had sashless windows.

I know it's been years since the original post. But, I just purchased a '72 without frames. To my surprise ..they were built with frame-less front and rear windows. Found an old timer that verified this. So the nayers do not know as much as they think!
Anyway..what gaskets did you use to seal the windows? The '65+ gasket just seems too flimsy..Thanks
