Vista Window 1974 Overlander

Help please!!!
We have curved Vista windows that leak. Do you know anywhere that sells replacements and if not how do we fix them. We know to remove them we have to drill out the buck rivets, however we can't find anyone to service them even if we bring them in. How have you dealt with these troublesome windows? Any input is appreciated. We arw located in Louisiana.

The first question is are they leaking from the outside of the trailer or, more likely, is your problem condensation inside the window?

I agree step one is to figure out where they're leaking from. If it's from around the window, you may be able to address that by resealing from the outside. If they're installed with Olympic rivets that are leaking, removing and reinstalling them with buck rivets and sealant should do it. If you need to disassemble them, pulling the snap ring out to remove the inner pane is doable without drilling any rivets.

So, where is the water coming from?
