To specifically answer your question try to use the original windows as a template. the actual window dimensions depend on the window seal you use and the thickness of the web section between the body and the window.
A caution, please install the window molding so the lock seal is positioned towards the outside, NOT the inside. The way the molding is made it is designed to seal properly when installed with the lock strip facing out or the "weather" side. Also the strength of the molding is designed to hold the window securely, especially when you consider the air pressure exerted on the window while driving on the highway.
I have come across and been contacted by quite a few who have installed the rubber window molding with the lock strip facing the inside thinking it looks better, their common question or problem is that the window leaks
and others have continued problems with the front window actually blowing out of the body into the trailer while driving
