I am thinking that the window actually fills up with water and then leaks into the trailer.
Any info would be helpful. Thanks.
The rockguards should have small gaps in them, eswpecially at the bottom, for drainage.
Since your trailer is 24 years old, I would suspect bad window gaskets and perhaps even improper window latch adjustments, that could be caused by old gaskets.
We changed the original gaskets to a better style, which is "D" shaped.
It does a much better job of sealing the windows.
