Installing Argosy Wrap Around Windows on a 1978 Airstream Sovereign 31'?

I am thinking about installing the Argosy wrap around windows on my 1978 airstream 31 foot sovereign with rear bedroom. Has anyone ever done this before? Will they fit without much modification? As far as I can tell I just have to cut the aluminum out to accommodate the larger wraparound window versus doing windows. Other than the interior molding, is there anything else I need to consider?

Thanks advance for your feedback. Loving the forum.

Where is the univolt and 12vdc fuse panel in your trailer?
There could be some wires running from the center overhead down in those areas. Or up from the tow umbilical plug up to the overhead to run aft.
Would require a little wire splicing and rerouting.

I am not too worries about the wiring, mostly concerned about the frame that runs around the windows.

Where those wing windows go the first frame will be where the curve meets the end cap. There is a little but below the front window. But beyond that it's open from the bottom of the window back to the straight transition.

Where did you get the windows from? I'm looking for one myself.
