To build out the thickness of the bottom outer shell edge to 1/4 " , it is not uniform in thickness , and to clean up bottom, not for a shim.

Robert, I am going to go over and try to get my camper tomorrow. I will have to figure out a way, and work to get them to a point where I can travel home with the camper. Then I want to precisely measure the bottom and bottom radius on that curve. AND Call you. HA! I have one day before the rain begins to try to apply fiberglass matt to the bottom outer shell edge. it is so thin. I need to talk to you
by phone when you have the time.

Update: Sold the original windows, have tempory plexiglass in the opening now, have bought the fiberglass resin and matt have read how to, have contacted a professional glassman who is coming by the house tomorrow to finish the lockstrip on the exit window (I got 3/4 around and could not finish) and render his opinions on the other one... Went camping last week and tarped the trailer.

Well, fudge! sometimes cruddy things happen to the best of us but I'm glad to hear that you're making good times despite the challenge! It will get done and you'll be a Happy Camper. As Red Green says 'we're pulling fer ya'

What about the new clamp ring window idea, did you give up on that? I think it's going to be difficult to reshape the opening with fiberglass, but without actually seeing it I can't make a good judgement on that solution.
