Question Vista View Windows On 1979 31' Soverign

A couple of the Vista View Windows on the 79' Soverign that we purchased recently need to be replaced/reapaired (i.e. condensation between the panes in one, "junk" between the panes of the other). Are these windows readily available and how much do they run. How difficult is it to replace them (I am somewhat handy but not a complete do-it-yourselfer). Do you also replace the trim around the window at the same time? Thanks, AJ

I could also benefit from this answer

Andy,
Is this a hard DIY job? Should the window come out from the inside or the outside?

Also, can you supply the plastic (vinyl) insert for the aluminium trim in the bathroom of my '74 Tradewind?

Thanks, Brian

John. The "call me" replies are basically that I can talk much faster than I can type.
Since my computer time must be limited, I can answer a question much much faster verbally. Hopefully, the person that received that answer would post it.
It's not intended in any way to be secretive, only time saving for me.
As it is, my 12 to 15 hours a day at the "office," usually 7 days a week, plays devil with a social life. I know, "what's a social life?"
Becoming a senior citizen some 5 years ago, for some reason requires more and more of my time for business. I don't mind that in itself, but I am trying to get my work day down to 8 or 9 hours per day and hopefully only 6 days a week.
Perhaps I should say, call me, but only if you promise to post the results of that call.
What does this group think?
Other idea's?

Andy

Andy,
Thanks for the response, I understand your a busy businessman and I appreciate that, its just we would all like to learn from the experience you can offer and whatever we can from those in the business like you and it looks like your just trying to make a sale when you tell someone to call you. If you would post a procedure etc. later on that would be great for the rest of us and I'm sure the others would agree.

John

Exclamation Followup needed!

Great link 83 Excella John.
I wonder why the author of it has not joined this forum? A guy named Hightower apparently.
How did you find the link?
His website is no longer a good URL.

Also to MontanaAndy, you not reported back on your telephone conversation with Inland Andy? Did you get ahold of him?

Re: Vista View Windows

I never did get around to calling Andy @ Inland RV re: the vista view windows because I decided that even though they are ugly and all. they function (don't leak) and at this point I would rather spend my money on the things that I really need to replace/repair (i.e. tires, new axles, new converter, etc. I hope to replace them somewhere down the line. Sorry if I left the thread hanging.

Vista View

We had the same problem with the Vista View windows in the 1975 Overlander we recently purchased.

The cheap and easy fix was to simply remove the inside pane of the dual glazed window, clean up what is left, and "Voile!"

No leaks (assuming it didn't leak before). No more spots or condensation. Downside is, of course, not having dual panes, but here in SoCal it hardly matters. The slide-down shades provide added insulation when they are closed.

Is this a DIY job? I don't know, not being a DIYer. That's why I live in Bellflower, less than 2 miles from C&G! <G>

PS: Replacement dual-paned Vista View windows are readily available, but they are not cheap ($300 comes to mind, but I can't be positive.)

Lower windows (vista?)

Just wondering, are the lower (non-opening) windows in the living room of my Sovereign considered Vista Views?

Would the repairs outlined for fogging/leaking work for me?

If that is indeed a gasket between the two panes is it available locally thru a commercial home center or an RV house.

Andy, does Inland RV have it?
