Replacement windows for 85' U-Haul 13'

Hey guys im new to the forum and just purchased this camper and am doing some restoration.

I'm looking for replacement windows. I need to replace the two sliding side windows at the back of the camper and also the sliding window on the door.

Does anyone know where i can find them. Any help would be great.

Thanks in advance.

Another UHauler is always welcome!

Lots of information here and the best way to access it is to use the Google search function (the bottom window of the pull down under "Search".

The good news is that these windows are easily rebuilt. The bad news is that the brief source of new old stock windows has dried up. Currently another member is pursuing a reasonable cost custom made window from an eBay vendor. Another option is to pay full freight for custom made Hehr windows at about $500 per pop.

Your best option is to see the results of member Higginra. The price estimate he got is way much better than any other sources that I found. They will most likely be the clamp ring type windows, as your front and rear windows are, rather than mouting in the rubber weatherstrip, but you can make them work. I installed a Scamp window in the side of our Uhaul, but it required making a filler piece because the window was smaller than the hole in the trailer. You can use a Scamp rear window to replace your rear window by enlarging the opening. What's the problem with your original windows, leaking?

Mary and Bob, Yes all three are leaking pretty bad. I have found the scamp windows and wasn't sure if they would fit. Just have not had time to pull the old windows out to measure and make sure they would fit.


Thomas, Thanks for the links i will check them out.

The Scamp side window I would say is not the way to go. It's around $150 and is too small for the opening. Somewhere on here is a picture of ours, thread title may be "pictures of our Uhaul ". As for the Scamp rear window, the Uhaul opening has to be widened about 1/2" on each side and the corners rounded out a little. Also the clamp ring has to be installed backwards. From my experience, DO NOT use the foam tape that Scamp sends with the window, it will leak. Instead use the black butyl tape. Another member here also replaced their front and rear windows with the Scamp rear window. Window price is around $150 or so, plus shipping. There is an old post somewhere by Bridget T on how to rebuild the side windows, real good info. However it is my opinion that she used the wrong weatherstrip, I used the AS 1456 and AS 789 on mine, it more matches the Uhaul original. Leaks have been my biggest ongoing problem, finally resolved almost all of them. The marker lights will leak water in too.

i found some windows on ebay i just need to pull out the old ones first to make sure on the measurements. The marker lights leak now but none of them work. The only lights that work are the tail lights. I am going to replace the rest and hopefully i will be able to seal them real good.

Make sure you know the wall thickness that the windows are designed to fit. The fiberglass trailers have very thin walls compared to the stick built trailers, so you need a clamp ring designed for a thin wall.

I'm sure you realize that the marker lights are not all on the same circuit, they are operated by two separate wire circuits. I forget just how the original wiring was set up because I rewired all the lights on our Uhaul. Besides being two circuits, it may also have been separate wires to the tongue.

Smile Update on window

The business owner told me he received his glass shipment yesterday. He said they would be starting production soon.

I have received the window and will be installing next weekend. So far it looks good. The window came wrapped in bubble wrap.

Excellent. Did you have them custom made to fit the existing opening? Is it attached with a clamp ring as opposed to the older weatherstrip retention?

Same questions as Tom. Use the butyl tape to seal it if it's a clamp ring type. Pictures if possible. This will be valuable info for other Uhaul owners, and others needing this type window, as the price was more reasonable than any I could find.

I am ready with the Butyl tape. It is the Trim Ring the seems to be 1/8 taller than opening. That seems to be the fiberglass is not square when ot was made. I will send pics as I complete it. It didn't come with the screws but I think I have some stainless ones. The drain hole is much larger than the original Uhaul windows had.
