Pics of trim ring

I have attached some pic of the trim ring. I have to cut some where the fiberglass was not square.

Thanks for keeping us in the loop. I replaced my front and rear window screws with stainless ones from Home Depot - they are standard screws - #10, I think.

When you get done can you post the pertinent information to help the next person?

Window size and specifications, dealer name and address would be great!

Trim ring sets against the inside wall, screws go through it into the window frame to hold the window in. Should be a groove in the window frame that the screws go into. Just make sure they are not too long so that they go right through to the outside. I had to use different screws than what came with the Scamp window because of the difference in wall thickness. And while we are talking about screw length, a previous owner used too long screws for the curtain rods and a couple went right through the outer shell.

The fiberglass should be like a sandwich (filling) between the window on the outside and the clamp (trim) ring on the inside.

Note:

When ordering I would give a rough opening of 24 5/8 x 19 1/4. I may be installing today.

I'm anxious to see how it turns out for you. This could be a good help for the UHaulers here that are frustrated with the side windows.

Pics of window in place

Pre starting screws on trim ring before installing. Additionally, I put the cover back over tape until I test fitted the window.

Nice, it looks like it came with a screen. Did the supplier make a right and a left or are both sides the same?

Exterior shot after install

Exterior shot after install but before cleaning window to remove tape I used to hold in place as I did this by myself. You will note the window could not be any taller as it goes from top edge to bottom edge.
