Exterior and Interior rivets can be purchased directly from the Airstream website or I don't have an answer for the vista view.

On my '73 excella there is an aluminum ring on the inside that can be pried out to remove the plexiglass inner "glass" and then the outer window can be removed from the inside. No need to remove any rivets. Don't know if the '70 is exactly the same but I would look carefully at the inside before drilling out any rivets.
