We really need a little more info here.. Like does the original frame exist? And has it or the opening been modified? If the frame is present, then you have an easier fix, so long as the frame welds are still good.. If the frame is missing, then obviously you will be in the market for a used frame preferably with glass to slide into the body/window frame. More details= more help.

if the frame of the window glass is missing but the frame in the trailer has not been damaged I would consider making a plexiglass window and mounting hinges directly through the plexi. You should be able to find a auto window glass gasket in any restoration shop that will go on the frame and seal to the plexi.

I had to replace my glass with plexi after I put the handle bars of my bike through the glass. Jacking the frame apart to put the plexi in was a job. I had to make a jacking jig to do that.

regular glass will fit in this frame. the glass shop or big box store will have it. it's not the exact same width, i believe its a 1/16 or 1/32 thicker. you can have it tempered if you prefer, but if its a rear window, i'd go with straight glass. the glass should be under $20. if you need the frame etc has one.

My 1963 came with normal window glass in it. You could put back the same, since it is just a square cut flat glass without radius's on the corners. Here is hoping the movable window frame still exists. That is the hard part to get.

The frame to the window itself is gone, but the frame to the opening is still there with that half of the hinge piece. I am hoping to find a frame to match up. Also will need the cranks and latches.
