Lost a window on our trip this weekend....yikes....

So someone forgot to latch one of the windows on our 69' Land Yacht....the rest of the story in on the side of the highway in WI. But I found some for sale from a 72' Land Yacht. Will these work???

1970 on up windows will not work on a 69, because the hinge is different.

If you attempt to install an opening window in a 69, that has the wrong hinge, then you will shear off the rivets that hold the hinge in place.

Unfortunately, if you want to install a opening window in a 69 trailer, you can only obtain a later model window, BUT" you must change the hinge. to match the 69 hinge arrangement.

Or, find a used window from a 69 trailer.

...ask Andy up above if inland has a replacement for your needed fix. We replaced ours back to the original after loosing it to the fate of a weedeater..(I hate those things) Good luck fixing the problem. You can see where we 'contact papered' it when it got busted...and then the second picture is the new one we are so darned proud of. It was close to a four hundred dollar fix, but in the long run it was 'key' to keep the originality of the Airstream in tact and solid.
