1979 Scamp, crank out windows and no sliding windows in the back.....we do not want to put a unit in the closet or the side of the camper---we want to just put the a/c in when we are at the campsite and take it out as we travel.

So......the question is, CAN we take the crank parts out of the side windows (leaving just the frame) and put the a/c in there.....and then just put some plexiglass to cover up the window....we would keep the parts so in the fall we could put them back in the window when it the a/c is not needed. I measured the a/c and it WOULD fit in that side window...if we could get the crank parts out of it.

I tried searching the site for this and could not find anything about I thought I would ask.

Here is a picture of the window

i used a small ac in the escape window of my lill trillium, i put it in when i needed it and let it ride on the floor when traveling. it worked really well. i had also tried one of those ducted portable units that did not work very well at all in the 1300

Does yours have crank windows? If so how did you take them out?

I have a '76 with much more easily removed windows... here's what I ended up doing after one is slid out.
