window leaks

my 63 Airstream Overlander is finally all brand new on the inside but now I am experiencing leaks as most of the windows, even tho it does not rain much in Calif.... some drips even coming in from ?? and dripping down from the crank handle.. which is the correct weather stripping for windows and is there a new strip for the glass to window frame too? I looked on Vintage trailer supply but do not know which one thanx

Hi Patti rague, Welcome to the forum!
You should call Vintage and ask them directly. They are very helpful and they specialize in weatherstripping. If you need help with installation contact Uwe Salwendar at Area 63 Productions. He's in the southland also, and also is very helpful.
Some leaks could be from above the windows but look like they are from the window itself. You may want to have a leak detection service inspect the whole thing, so you dont replace things that don't need it. Could save you some time and money in the long run.

Good to have you with us,

Patti, You most likely have the Hehr Hall Mark-12 windows. You'll need the glazing strip that comes in a 12' length and the window bulb seal. Look for items that are listed for the Hehr Hall-Mark 12 windows, since that is what you have. This will seal the windows. If there are other leaks, it may be from a seam that needs sealing from the exterior of the coach. Good luck in repairing your leaks.
