Help! Window Flew the Coup!

Coming back from a Brady Bunch type trip with the family to the eastern Sierra's we heard a loud BANG while passing a big rig. Scared the heck out of us. When we got home we (I) unpacked the truck and trailer then I was checking out the trailer when I noticed my window over the bedroom was missing! It's a sick feeling looking at something you cheerish, wounded! I'm assuming that the seals were dried out which caused the window to wiggle, which caused the latches to open, which caused the window to violently swing open and slam, and then ripped off of the trailer, frame and all!
Here comes the question. Where do I find a 61' Overlander bedroom window. It measures approx. 20"x36" (wifes meas.) We have a trip planned in two weeks to Northern Ca. I would appreciate any help in finding a window. The trip would be alot better with a bedroom window.

I've got some tinted Plexiglass at the shop, if you want to make a temp window.
You're welcome to it, just drop by.

Too bad!! It is practically a mortal wound to see our beloved beauties damaged. What is the type of Hehr window and number? If you look closely at the bottom of the riveted window frame, it will have a series of numbers on it. For example, mine's marked "HEHR 1009 1940 ER" meaning it's a 19" x 40" outside window frame. That's the size of the opening in the body before the riveted window frame is applied. The model is 1009 and I forget what the ER indicates but the big factor is the 4 digit number signifying the measurment. Knowing this will help you immensely in locating a replacement.

Funny thing is, all five of my windows are exactly the same size and model. Not seen another like it.

Thanks Uwe, I'll give Andy a call and see what he's got. Also, I like to stop by and see the progress on the Overlander!

Hey FF, Funny you mention the Hehr #. I was showing a friend the window last night and he shined the flashlight at such an angle, that I caught a glimpse of the Hehr #. I'll get the number before I call Andy.
