Thanks

Y'all had me scared, but the auto center punch worked great! Closed my eyes and depressed the punch and HOPED. Glass cracked on the first punch, and I was off and running. I kept telling myself work slow and deliberate. I am a 64 YO man so working slow is really pretty easy. I hope the pics turn up, I am still trying to figure this out.

1972:
The first year Double Pane Vista View Windows were available was 1972
and these trailers actually had a plastic inner pane with its own frame.
So on a 72 you can remove the inner vista view pane and just clean off
the damaged tint on the inside of the outer pane. It is quit simple and
the finished product looks good.


Great info, thanks anyone aware of more detailed instyructions ? thanks

Will be dealing with both types I found in my 76 Caravanner. 2 snap ring style and 6 of the other type. One of the snap ring style is leaking and looks like a repair was attempted previously so I'll start there. I called Can-AM RV Centre and they do have the gaskets in stock, the salesman's computer wasn't working so I didn't get to finish the order or have prices and part numbers yet. I'll update later, but, they have it in stock and he said they sell and ship out a lot of it. They seem very friendly and helpful so far.

Regular prices are 3.88/ft for the snap ring style, 4.88/ft for the non-snap ring. He gave me a price of 3.25 and 4.00 respectively. Not sure if that's because I had to wait for him to call me back or if it was because I ordered so much (8 windows worth). Just over $200 so ~$25 per window minus shipping and taxes. Not bad! Eagerly waiting for email confirmation to see how much taxes and shipping are though.

Tony, what are the dimensions of the gasket. I have the same project coming up and would like to see if I can source the material locally.

I've been advised AS changed this design a few times, '72 window plastic will not clip out I've been told. I can't see any clips or way of accessing. A well know AS restoration business owner said it was probably best to remove entire window anyways to re-seal.
any further thoughts, much appreciated !!

Its been so cold here I haven't even got around to take it out of the box yet. I do know it's about 7 foot in length per window. I'll get it out of the box, measure and take a picture for you.

Hey Silverback, I never did end up getting the dimensions from Tony so I just went ahead and ordered the material from Canam in Canada. The material measures out to be 3/4 by 7/16 of an inch and it is a neoprene type of rubber.
