Frank,

Put a call into Dave M. We stopped by there on the way home, he was at the shop and had lunch with he and Martha. There is something there with the front cap smashed out in the yard, but has the windows your need just in the larger size (could be cut down). I did not ask about if he would sell them. You never know.

Frank I couldn't wait so I went up and looked at the 63 tonight. It has the right windows you need. Most of the glass is broken but the frames are good and all the jalousie parts are there. I'll call you tomorrow once I get it back here and get the windows off for you. then it's just a matter of boxing them up and shipping them to you.

Frank,
Ouch!!! Sorry to see the damage. It will get better. Ladies forgive a man's mistakes, if the man treats them right.

I often think I have seen it all, heard it all, been there done that, and nothing should surprise me, but I am often blown away by what some people do. This community is so very awesome and I am so fortunate to be a part of it. Thank you all, but thank you so much Chris.

I was asking some fellow Airstreamers this weekend about the physics of squeezing a larger trailer (than my dainty Mini) on some New England campsites. They said the problems start when the campsite actually goes and leaves up some of the trees...

Frank OUCH! I'm sure you will get this fixed but some frustrations a guy just doesn't need!

This forum is awesome, the help just comes flowing in when needed.
Keep yourself surrounded with aluminum and all will get better!

A 63 has landed

Frank, the 63 made it home in one piece with no issues. I had no brakes or lights and the door blew open but I only had to travel 6 miles to get it home. Here are some shots of your windows. i hope to have them out of the trailer this afternoon and will box them up this evening and maile them out in the morning. It shoule take 7 to 10 days to arrive by post. I will check with UPS first to see how much the shipping is with them and if it's not too much I will use them as they are faster that postal services.
