Minuet Broken Windown

Good morning. I just joined and have a question. A rock blew out my corner window (Drivers side) and I want to replace it. Please point me in the right direction! I can probably do it myself.

Minuet Broken Windown

Greetings Steve!

Welcome to the Forums and the world of Vintage Minuet ownership!

The front wing windows are available new from the Airstream, but the one problem will be that the new windows have the deep tint that is now used in the Classic series Airstreams. It is my understanding that it has been several years since the clear units used in our coaches were available as replacements.

If you want the non-tinted, original style, about the only hope is to find one from a salvage yard (such as Colaws in Carthage, MO), or find one in the old stock of an Airstream dealer who has been in business for two or more decades.

Unfortuneately, it is too late to save your window, it is possible to modify the current three-piece front window rock guard available from Airstream to fit our Minuets. The wing windows are identical in size, shape, and curvature to the new coaches so the only modification needed is to the center section which will need to have about 8" removed to suit the Minuet's narrower width. Janet and Janet's Husband have an excellent series of posts regarding their modifications and installation -- my Airstream dealer handled the modification and installation on my Minuet.

Be prepared when you find the new window -- they are very expensive. The expense of the replacement as well as the lack of availability for clear replacements helped to convince me to add the rock guards on my Minuet.

Good luck with your investigation!

New windows can be ordered thru an Airstream dealer or Inland RV in CA - they specialize in old AS parts.

So sorry about the window and welcome to the forums.
