This is from the internet and was supposed to be a 1964 Sovereign as well.

P.S. This is my first attempt to post a pic (successfully)
My 1964 Bambi II has a louvered window in the door

Sounds like some kind of sealant was used to stop leaks or prevent lose of the glass segments. Have you tried any solvents like Permatex Gasket Remover? We found it to work really well at removing silicone...not without some virgorous scraping, but it does help soften it up. If all else fails, you can always break the glass out (easy to replace) and get all the goo out of the frames then put new glass in...

Thanks Shari
Yes, we had planned on just replacing the glass. We just can't seem to buy a trailer that doesn't need glass work done. Anyway, how do you get the glass out of those windows? Here is what we have now.

Do the windows open (pivot) or are the "glued" shut? If they "open" and the panels aren't glued together, they should just slide up and out after loosening the side gaskets from the frame. Although, from your pic it looks like they are glued shut...

Since you are planning on replacing the glass, I would just break it out. Then get the goo out of the frame with whatever means necessary and put new glass in. Try using a straight edged razor blade or putty knife with the gasket remover for starters to scrape out the frame...if they were gluded shut or in place with epoxy or something similar, it may not work. But once the glass is removed you should be able to clean-up the frames somehow...the metal part appears to be in good shape.

The windows open. Whatever they used didn't hold up well. Just made a mess. I will try to see if I can figure out how to loosen the side gaskets.
Thanks
Debbie
