Andy,

You keep telling us that the glass is not available from the factory. At this point, I am still praying that I might find a used window. If I do, then the frame may be very usefull.

Unfortunately (or fortunately) I had already done all of the work before I read your second post about the frame being included with new glass. That would have been valuable information to know earlier on.

Thanks though.

Be very cautious with a used window.

Probably at this point, there are at least 100 people looking for wrap windows.

You could reassmble it and install the Lexan, as we have done here.

CAUTION. Do not attempt to put Lexan within the frame. It "WILL" pop out.

Andy

I'm confused...

why the newer "smoked" glass frames from the new AS corner wraps do not work? Is it a different profile?

The new style is a larger size.

In order to use them, you must cut away some of the surrounding structure, which is a very "BAD" idea.

Airstream "DOES NOT" recommend that procedure since additional stresses would be placed on the glass, possibly causing it to shatter.

This is a long shot but you might give this guy a call. Contact Mr. Sonny Hare: phone 205-665-2531. He is in Birmingham. Don't have a clue if he can help. Probably not, but it might be worth a call if you want used.

Thanks, everyone, for your help. I still haven't found a window. I pm'ed RichardT and emailed Colaw RV, but neither have what I need. I am planning on calling Duncan Systems as soon as I have a free minute (I'm a landscaper and it's leaf season).

Minnie's Mate: I will try to call Mr. Hare, too. Is he a buisiness owner, or does he just have some old RVs?

Thanks for everything.

Duncan Systems "DOES NOT" have any Airstream windows.

They are "not" an Airstream dealer, therefore they must purchase the glass from an Airstream dealer.

They "do not" stock Airstream glass.

They too, have wrap windows on back order.

Thanks Andy, but it never hurts to ask. As Guy99 said, they got his windshields. The worse they could say is "No." On the other hand, I would sure hate to find out that they did have something when I didn't ask.

Windshields are an entirely different matter.

Duncan purchases the Airstream windows from us.

We have on back order for them, the same wrap windows you need.

We have more than a dozen of the wrap window on back order, and have had for some time.

New ones, don't exist as of today and probably won't until next year.

Andy

Andy,
Really, please lay off a little. The Club is a new forum member and he already feels bad about breaking the window. It's already really clear from your previous posts that these windows are hard/impossible to get. The last thing someone wants when faced with this situation is to be reminded over and over again that the window they broke is NA. He's trying to correct the situation and maybe he'll find a used window or maybe he'll take your advice and use plexiglass as you've described.

There is no need to beat a dead horse.

point made here. Let The Club pursue his window. Hard to find maybe, but stranger things have happened. Sonny is dealer near Huntsville, AL who has a back stock of lots of odd parts, he migh .
Reminds me of the time I ran over a train track in my 1967 Alfa Spyder, ripping thru the oil pan. I was told by every place i called that I could never find one....then I called a junk parts dealer who said he just might....I drove over and there it was sitting on a shelf, pretty as new. Who would have thought it amongst wrecked Chevys and Fords?
Good luck in your quest, keep us posted.

I just got off the phone with Sonny. I would have to recomend him, just for the conversation if nothing else. I spent the better part of a half an hour talking to him, just for one window. It's very refreshing to have someone care enough to talk and share info.

He told me that the rear panoramic windows on the classic Airstream Motorhomes are the same ones used for the front panaramic windows on trailers from the early 80's till the late 90's. Of course, he doesn't even own a computer, so I don't know how he could confurm this. So he said that the rear, curb side is the same as the front, road side.

Anyway. It may open up some doors for finding used glass. Any takers? Does anyone have an extra panaramic window for a trailer laying around?

Sonny said that he would call me back today or Friday. So far, I would recomend calling him if you need something. (He doesn't have a website )
