Does anyone know where to get a kitchen window for the 13' boler? I am having a very hard time finding one. We really want to keep the louvered windows like the dinette and door, if possible

Cheers

Ursula

You can get a radiused-corner jalousie window new (Scamp has really good prices since they buy in volume), but I don't know of anyplace you can buy the square-cornered originals new (which were made by Hehr).

I really like the jalousie windows too.

In my 1988 Scamp, the bathroom window... while radius cornered... flips out. It doesn't slide. In this small of an area, I think that's better than a longer window that would be needed to slide.

On edit: you might check RV wrecking yards... or the like for a square cornered jalousie window... or maybe these people: RV Doctor George

Donna,

That's the radius-cornered jalousie I was referring to that you could buy from Scamp. It's just that it has, well, radiused corners They're also black (at least the Scamp ones).

Like you say, I think used/salvage is the only way to get one of the original-style, square-cornered, mill finish (silver) Hehr jalousie windows.

Awesome Thanks Ladies,

what I was looking for. I am trying to find a salvage yard here in Edmonton but haven't had any luck yet. The hunt continues

Cheers

Check with major glass shops in your area -- they may be pulling out old jalousie windows on houses to replace then with more energy-efficient windows.

Yes, they will be the wrong size, but the width can be adjusted by shortening the glass louvers, and the height by keeping only the number of louvers you need.

I got several used jalousie windows from our local glass shop for free! They were happy to give them to me because otherwise they would have to pay dump fees.
