Unhappy We'll start with the windows

Hi all,
This is my first time posting after exploring this site in preparation for towing up our newly purchased 1967 Sovereign Landyacht from Florida to Wisconsin. While I have tons and tons of work ahead of me, I figured the first thing to do was to get the windows in good shape. A few of the windows are original and glass, some have been replaced and siliconed in permanently , and one is gone completely. Many leak.

In replacing the windows, I'd like to get which ever ones will be insulated the best. Will the lexan windows be okay or should I be looking for glass ones. I read some threads about discontinued windows, etc. Any advice?

And for the leaky ones, can I just replace the whatever-you-call-it that seals the window? Mine all seem pretty dry and cracked.

Forgive me, I am truly a novice here and will be posting often as my husband and I work our way through this beauty.

Thanks!
Kim

Corning windows are no longer available. If you have these you choices are very limited, although some forum members are experimenting with new methods of making the Lexan replacements fit and seal better.
The whatever-you-call-it is called a window gasket, I think Andy at Inland RV can help you with those. try www.inlandrv.com .
Good luck on your trip home with your new baby, and welcome to the Forums!
