Window for my Argosy

Hey All,
I have a 1974 26ft argosy and I need to find a front left (driver side) wrap around window. Is any one out there parting out an old trailer? If not where can I find one? Thanks J.D.

Hello J.D. -- and welcome to the Forums! The front wing pano windows are a premium item. One would have to linger here a long time to find one and perhaps be frustrated in the end. You could always put a wanted ad in the Classifieds. The original Argosy windows were untinted. I hear that the current pano windows are the same size (no guarantee on accuracy of that statement), but they're available only in tinted. You'd have to talk to a dealer for that. Good luck.

The Airstream wrap windows for July 1999 production, "AND OLDER" have been on back order since June of 2006.

Airstream did received some glass to make them, but the glass was defective. They have been looking for another vendor.

Clear wrap windows have not been available for years. Solar gray only.

The newer style wrap window will not fit in place of the older style.

There are two choices available. You can cover the hole with sheet metal. The window frame will be ruined, but it will go when you change the window.

Or, you can add a piece of Lexan to the outside of the window and attach it with screws. Again the window frame will be ruined.

DO NOT USE PLEXIGLASS. It can easily crack and blow out when traveling.

Andy
