Replacing windows

We have to replace our rear (fire escape) window and a window on the driver side of our 28 foot, 2007 Safari. I now understand that in addition to the window glass being replaced, the frame actually has to be removed and replace because the frame and the window are one unit. Can anyone tell me the best & Cheapest place in Texas to get this done would be? We also have a friend in the construction business (of houses). Is this something he could do? Or is it clearly an "Airstream thing"? Thanks so much for your input. It is very appreciated.

Are they opening windows, or riveted to the shell windows?

The Safari window assemblies are really easy to change. If you look at the frame, you'll see a bunch of screws on the inside, simply remove the screws, the inner frame will pretty much fall out, and you can gently push the remaining part of the window out of the hole.
Just make sure you have the replacement windows in hand before removing the old ones, to make sure they are the same.

No riveting needs to be done to change out your windows.

Each of your 2 windows takes less than 5 minutes to install.
