that's insane (re: glass test)& if you do break that curb side large window (the largest one on the 68-I get the sides mixed up)... we still have it & are just going to hang onto it unless someone wants to buy/swap it... & I LOVE my windows... cost $1,500 to have 4 put in but it was SOOOOO worth it!

I do not open windows fully horizontal except for 2 small ones... we only open the larger 4 about a foot or so... also put blue tape hanging on edge so nobody walks into them... w/or w/out frame

If anyone needs the HUGE side window... we have the orig from Corning (Stateline was supposed to re-install it, but they goofed & put a new one in, so we kept the orig

If you hang tape or steamers @edge & don't fast crank or open too much... you should be able to keep your windows... I mean really... if you have orig windows think about it... they've lasted this long so w/care... they will last even longer replacements are WICKED expensive & not as groovy
im interested in the side glass im gona pm you

I don't know why my PM doesn't work, but you are welcome to email me @ [moderator edit - email address removed for member's protection]

we are in Maine... the glass is from our 1968 Safari, I have pieces of the metal edging that you may have to re-frame it, but the piece of original curved forming glass is beautiful... it is the largest window on the trailer... the one entry side

aluminomad, I've slightly modified the way you had set up your profile and you should receive PMs just fine from now on.

Try a swimming noodle-- cut to length, then split the side--slip over side of open glass. May not be pretty, but sure saves the head. Remove before closing window.
