Ok I have another question or should I say questions. On the passenger side window I am missing glass (meaning) I have the frame that fits into the fiberglass and is screwed together and I have the one piee of glass that does not move. What I dont have is the one piece of glass that does slide open and shut. that glass was broken out and the frame that the glass was in that slid back and forth in the track weas ripped out and not repairable. I am also missing the screen on it too. I am also missing the complete window to the back door. I have the frame and the screen but the window that moves and the one that stays still is busted out. Any tips on where I could get spare parts or have a window made? I went to an rv place last week but they only deal with the windows that have the rounded corners not the one that have a 90* angle like mine..... I hope that made sence

Just a thought...
Is there a place near you that makes/repairs old windows, screens and mirrors? They can often make up an aluminum frame and glass to fit.

Hi Tania,
I had a similar problem. When my weed eater tossed a rock I broke
the sliding part of my camper shell side window which is about like the
ones in your trailer. I took out the similar window on the other side
of the shell, frame and all. With the window out I was able to take out
the sliding pane to use it to trace its outline. I cut out the tracing
which was done with cardboard, compared it to the window to ensure
it was the proper size, and took the finished pattern to an auto glass shop.
The shop sent the pattern out to a supplier who cut out and tempered a
replacement pane. The new pane fit right into the old frame and
worked well. The cost was less than $100. Hope this helps with your dilemma.
