Help With Window Parts

I am looking for the plastic parts that hold the windows open on a 1971 Overlander. Most of them are broken on my trailer. I can try to get a picture. Also, I have a question on the sliding panel over the upper window. Can you get a new one of these? It is all broken up under the panel and it is hard to close.

Next, This is from the kitchen window - the PO broke the blind holder so they stuck a pen end to hold it up. What is the best way to repair this?

Here are the window lift brackets. I bought mine from Airstream at the factory and recall them being like $6.50 each. I can buy rivets anywhere. When you install them the rivet holes don't quite line up so I did top and bottom then drilled the other two.

You need to remove the interior handles and pull the rod outside to thread it through the bracket - you'll see what I mean when you do the first one.

Take a look at this window trim on Ebay. It may be too large but worth measuring. You could fiberglass the back where it has minor cracks....

If your looking for the plastic trim/slide around the window that the panel fits into - the only way your going to find it is to keep looking for a trailer that's being parted out. If you watch Ebay and Search Tempest (craig's list helper) they show up a few times each year....

Inland RV and maybe Vintage Trailer Supply sell the guides. The inside trim is brittle and new is not available. Any replacement vintage interior trim will also be brittle. You may be able to put a fiberglass patch but no way to fix the brittleness

That part is called "window position guide".

The vista view plastic shades are obsolete.
