Replace old windows with modern??

Just started renovation on a 1969 Overlander 27' (basket case). Almost all the window glass is broken out. I really like the new modern windows...where can you buy them? Airstream only? Living in Austin Texas.

Airstream windows are only available from an Airstream dealer.

Please be aware that the 1969 windows all had a goofy hinge. When you get new windows, you will have to remove the hinges from the old windows, and install them on the new windows.

If you do not do that, you will snap off all the rivets that hold the hinge in place on the replacement windows.

The hinge, is unfortunately, different on the 69 windows, and there is no replacement for them.

What is the "best" roof AC and which one has a "drip pan" available to use, is two different issues.
