I went out in the yard and examined a window today. The piece you show in your hand is not welded, it is buck riveted onto the top of the sash using 1/8" solid rivets.

No frank you are looking at the piece attached to the window, the piece that fell off is what holds the piece you are looking at up, essentially the female end of the hinge which also makes up the gutter above the window. The piece is TOO small to accompany any type of rivet!

Pull your window, any window, completely out. Now the top piece, still attached to the trailer, which was holding that window in, is what fell out, you will not see any rivets in it, other than the one on your picture, which keeps the hinge from sliding out!

Hi Noco, I had a quick look at my '69 Safari on my way to work I attempted to take a pic but it was pouring rain. One thing I can tell you that may help though is that the back window on mine is identical to the front one in construction so hopefully you should be able to go back to your trailer and work from that. . In your picture you posted the window I can see has curved corners, is that one of the side windows? My front and back are both flat & rectangular, same kind of hinge system on them though...
