Are crank out shed windows the same like in our trailers?

I need a replacement window for my 76 scamp. I looked on ebay and found some crank out windows for sheds, those look almost the same. I found some people who used those for teardrop trailers but there made of wood. Does anybody know if that would work on fiberglass?

You might have some luck researching what Hehr windows has available.
_This is a link to their window and door product page_

They have many styles and span several decades (since the 50's) and are popular on many RVs. Both our full time Mobile Suite and our small Parkliner-egg have the jalousie windows made by Hehr. From what i've read they can make just about anything/any-size.

Best wishes on your build/revamp.
Thom

Christine, they might be the same size, but will probably be missing the interior clamp ring. Windows mounted into sticks 'n bricks buildings don't need the clamp ring because they're screwed into the frame, but we need them for the interior mounting in an all molded towable.

One of the members here is replacing his windows with brand new ones, perhaps his old ones will be for sale?

Ah, i understand, i didn't know that. Sadly one of my windows is just the frame and everything else is missing... I tried to get the Boler ones but he didn't email back yet. I really wana keep the old crank windows even if my husband would like to change everything to the new black tinted ones but its just not the same!

My Compact Jr. has windows that do not have an inside clamp ring, instead it has wood framing inside that the window's mounting screws "bite" into. The key is if the shed windows fit the opening. If they do, then you could make a wood frame for the inside that mounting screws from the outside could "bite" into.

However, trailer windows need to have safety glass -or- Plexiglas, and I think the "shed" windows are regular house type glass.

Ahh, good idea about making a frame!

Christine, you need to change you profile so we know what year/brand of trailer you have. It helps us to help you!

Christine, if you can wait a while folks sell or give away their old windows. It would be great to just refurb the older windows and install in your Scamp.

I broke a window pane on my 1973 Boler. It certainly didn't break like automotive glass.

Is it possible to repair the old window? Some of the bits and pieces are replaceable, and you can get new glass.
