New to Scamp with leaking window

Probably a thread that covers this already, but our New (83) to us scamp needs a floor replaced because of a leaking window. For now, only the back window is leaking. Do we look into replacing the window, or do we just take it out and replace the seal, assuming we can replace the seal?? Would love some info from you awesome people! Sorry no pics......

considering your window and the seal are 35 years old I would replace them both, the acrylic will haze, get brittle and crack with age, the seal will harden and shrink. Although the information on my site is about Boler's your Scamp is identical. "click" on this link All about Boler / Scamp Front & Rear Windows

If you are going to replace the floor I would wait to pull and repair the window when you repair the floor. It is good for the extra ventilation and passing tools and cords through the window opening during the floor repair. It gives you a clean walkway through the door. For now I would just temporarily seal your window leak.

Sound to I that it is a good time to replace ALL off the window seals and to reseal those that can be done in that manner. After 40 some years, unless this has been done recently, new leaks will be in the future of that new floor.

Yes, I guess it would be nice to get everything done at once. Just thought we should do the window first, because pretty sure that is the cause of the nasty floor. Projects! Projects! Projects!
