Cheyanna83,
I took the windows out of my Ventura a few days ago and have been cleaning them and have ordered the same part online from Vintage Campers because Vintage trailer supply was all out of the rt hand version.
I just went out and looked at the set up on our trailers and was able to get at the part without taking too much apart. I think you probably should be able to do it without taking out the window again.
On the side that the crank is on, there is a piece of gray plastic that runs the height of the window.
I removed that and took out all the screws on both sides of the bottom rod only.
I then took each side of the bottom rod off the crank bar that runs the height of the window.(pic 1)
I was able to move the left hand side up towards the top of the window (pic 2) and with some wiggling got it at enough of an angle that the crank mechanism on the right side came out of place and I was able to take it out and remove it from the rod. From there it would be a simple thing to put the new one onto the rod and reverse the process to get it into place and replace the screws.
I just noticed that one of the pictures is blurry, let me know if you want a better one.
Good luck.

When I was reading through the forums, I took note of things that applied to the Ventura and one was that we need to use the 1970s Boler Torque Bar Window Operator, part VTS-582 for our windows. I can't find the thread now but I think that is right in order to have the screw hole line up.
If you are not in a hurry, I will be getting my parts next week and can let you know if they are the right ones. It can be hard ordering online and not being able to compare first hand.

Thanks for chiming in! I know there are a lot of similarities between the various eggs, but it sounds like the Scamp and Ventura are different enough in this aspect that it will be helpful to have this info! Your cleaned up windows look great! SLOWLY working on mine

Your new knobs look great! That's what we have in our Scamp

Someone else may chime in with more knowledge, but as long as it is opening and locking the window and isn't loose, I wouldn't think it would be a problem? But again, I'm just as new to replacing things as you!
