That bar, according to Airstream, holds the wing windows to the front window.
Interesting enough, that same bar "IS NOT": used to hold the wrap windows, which are much larger, to the front window.
We have found using that bar is a 100 percent waste of time and effort.
Using Vulkem sealer, does a much better job, especially when your fitting a new wing window into a 30 or 40 year old Airstream.
