window frame

I have a '64 Overlander. We had a storm that broke out a side window. I was out of town and when she cleaned up the glass she through away the frame. I was out of town. I was wondering if anyone knew where I could get some material to make another frame.

Oiwei!
I have never seen aluminum extrusions that resembled the profile of the window frame material.
You might start looking at Airstream Salvage Yards and e-bay.
Colaws RV Salvage would be a good start.
Good Luck!

Two different 1964 side window frames

Hi Joe:

As you begin your search for a 1964 window frame, please be advised that Airstream used two different types of side window frames during 1964. The correct one for your trailer depends on which factory -- California or Ohio -- built your 1964 trailer. The difference is apparent at the frame lower corners. The side window frames used most often by the Ohio factory had overlapping joints at the lower corners that appear to be square when assembled. The side window frames used most often by the California factory had 45 degree mitered joints at the lower corners, like a picture frame corner. There are other differences such as how the frame mounts and attaches to the opening arms, so it is important to get the correct inner frame for your trailer window.

Look at your other side window frames to see which type you have, then look at the serial number plate on your trailer to learn which factory built your trailer. This information is critical when searching for a replacement frame. Each type of window likely was also used in earlier 1960s trailers, and perhaps in 1965 trailers also, so don't limit you search just to 1964 model year Airstreams. Good luck!

I'm not feeling greatly encouraged. I will try online to find something, but I get the feeling this may become a "picture window". The trailer has got a rear bathroom and then the bed room and its there that the window is. I would like to have that one open, maybe I could swap it with another.

Well, my lucky day. I was cleaning up some leaves on the side of the house and found the parts that make up the frame. Now it seems she thought she threw the frame out. Oh well, lifes good.
Thanks for the ideas on finding a new frame anyway.

Joe
