The complete rear window assembly that rivets to the body on my '63 Globetrotter measures 44.5" x 23.5". Hope this helps.

Hi Dave:

In 1962, the California and Ohio factories used different size front and rear windows, so not all trailers of a specific year used the same size rear window. Besides finding out which factory built the '62 and '63 trailers from which the windows might come, you should also measure the size of each window you are considering. I don't know how 1963 window sizes compare to the different 1962 window sizes. Measure twice and hopefully replace only once. If you can't measure, then either wait until you can or roll the dice on getting the correct size window. Hope this helps you avoid some wrong purchases.

Hopefully Overlander & Sea has the same size as mine in the GTs, they are the same as the 62 Tradewind on craigslist.I emailed him to purchase his window. Dave
