KU MocoLab needs HELP!

We have a 1972 31' Sovereign Twin Land Yacht. The interior has been gutted out and we are a little more than halfway through the design process of what we want to put back in. However, we are missing some critical fixtures to make the windows work.

We are looking for suggestions on how to reseal the windows, with weatherstripping and any other steps that need to be taken to completely seal it up. Also, we are missing two of the rod component that is pictured below. Does anyone know where we can find these?

Also, any suggestions on a place to find the latches for cheap?

Thanks for any help and suggestions!!

You can find most of these components from online dealers like Inland RV or You can also find used parts. The "rods" might not be so easy--don't recall seeing them anywhere, but if you get desperate, you could get a piece of ~1/4" steel and bend it to match the originals without too much effort. The Latches will run you over $30 ea new. Again, if you can find someone parting out a trailer, you might be able to get everything you need the cheapest way.

You can still buy the rubber seal that goes around the windows from the above suppliers as well. There is a YouTube video where some professional reality TV type guys "restore" a 70's vintage trailer. They do a pretty detailed walkthrough of resealing a window. I think the show was "classic rides" or something like that.

good luck!
