Perhaps you need to move your Airstream much closer to your house or think seriously about investing in a couple of really big dogs. I lived in Georgia, for a couple of years and don't remember it being this dangerous. I'm so sorry to hear you're again having trouble with the Airstream. Most of us get such great pleasure and satisfaction out of our trailers, while your's seems to be a source of stress. Good luck with your window search. I think that Corning is making replacements for those windows, but they're not cheap. Some of the members here will be able to direct you to a dealer I'm sure.

Hummm, that's curious. I've been shot at several times here in Georgia. 'Course, I was in the wrong deer stand at the time.

Angel73,

I think that they are still available from Airstream. Give Jackson Center a call.

The part you need is called a "wing window".

Unfortunately, the double pane windows that you have are no longer available.

The replacement windows are all single pane.

You will need the wing window, some olympic rivets and a tube of vulkem sealer.

If you have a drill, and a little talent, you can replace that window yourself.

Additionally, that might not have happened, if the trailer had a "rock guard" covering the front three windows.

Expect to pay over $300.00 for that window.

Also, and who knows why, wing windows are in short supply from the factory.

A dealer or two may have that window already in stock.

Angel73.

No such luck.

When you purchase a wing window, is comes with the metal frame. You cannot take it apart, to get just the glass, and then take your double pane apart and install the new outer glass in it.

It simply won't fit.

Additionally, once you disturb the double pane internal gasketing, you will sadly find that you cannot expect to reassemble the window, and make it leak free.

The simple solution, ie replace the window.

The insuance on your trailer will cover that, or in the absence of insurance on the trailer, a good "homeowners policy" would cover the trailer, especially since it was in your yard.

Andy

That's horrible!

With all the struggles you've had, and now this - I can see where you might be feeling a little snakebit by now. Keep your chin up and keep plugging away. Your Airstream family is behind you 100%.

Perhaps I'm misunderstanding, correct me, the neighbor shot the window with a bb gun.
Just a thought....so, if the neighbor shot the window out, does that person's insurance cover the property damage they do to others?

Have you talked with them? Are they willing to work with you on this?

Good luck. Sorry you had that experience.

And if the neighbors won't pay up, call the cops. That's malicious destruction of property. I wouldn't stand for it.
