Burro rear window needed

I have a 1983 13 foot Burro that had an air conditioner in the rear window and the window needs total replacement due to the damage. I hope some one knows where I might be able to purchase one. The window opening is
44 3/8 wide by 22 5/8 tall and appears to be a slider, but the way it was modified, I cannot really tell. Hope for some help.

thanks,
jlr

The rear window in my 1980 Burro 13 is has 3 panes and is the same size as yours. The 2 side ones are fixed and the middle one slides to the side. If you look carefully, you will see that both the front and rear of the Burro window mounting surfaces have a curve to them. The middle of the window bows out about 1.5 inches relative to the ends. Because of the bow, I do not think you will find a replacement window that will fit. New windows will be flat unless you have something custom made and that will be very expensive. I could not find the same size even if it was a flat window.

I am replacing all the windows in my Burro with crank out style windows. When I purchased the replacements, I had to adjust the sizes to find something reasonable in price. The rear replacement is taller and has a little less width. It is also flat and will require considerable fiberglass work to remove the bow from the window mounting surface and adjust the opening to the new window size.

I would not recommend the place that I purchased from because it took several months for delivery, much longer than I was quoted.
