There are several RV wrecking yards that have been listed on other threads. They may be able to supply the frame and then it's a simple matter of hitting a glass shop. The one I'm most familiar with is Singleton's in WA state but they are all over the country. I'm not sure about your units but my '51 has the same window in the front as the rear.

you may be able to stitch one together from 2 smaller windows. i think robandzoe may still have some windows left that match that look. you'd need to get a welding shop to TIG it together for ya, though.

what size do you need?

the size is 46 wide by about 17 high. i can find a welding shop here in los angeles that could do the stiching if i could locate the parts.

David, you too may want to try Cherokee Rv Salvage in Colorado. They have a warehouse full of Airstream windows. Their Toll Free phone number is 1-877-291-3433. Ed
