"72 LY Globetrotter Plastic window supports
 
Hello out there ,

My wife and I now own a 1972 LY Globetrotter and we love it!

But when we open the windows and want to keep then open we have

broken plastic window rod supports . These plastic supports or guides

appear to be original and are all tired out .I have searched the web but have not seen these for sale anywhere yet.

These plastic pieces are located inside every window sill and allow you to set the window open rod supports at different levels to keep the window open at different angles .

Anybody out there know where I can but these ??

Thanks , Joe and Liz in Tampa florida

The parts are still available from Airstream dealers if you are referring to the white or black plastic/nylon guides that the window support rods rest upon when the window is open. They are referred to as "Three Position Window Kit". My notes indicate that while the originals may have been white plastic the new kits in black plastic are identical in design.

Good luck with your project!

That part is called a "window position guide".

Parts stocking dealers would have them.
