Thumbs up

The lil window on the door of our Trail Mite got all bent up when a big ol' yellow Ryder truck grazed our egg in a parking lot. Yeah, it coulda been a lot worse. As it is he took off the "dog-leg" door-stop and left yellow paint on the door handle.

Anyway, is there a source for a replacement just like this? I know that I've seen the identical item on other eggs....Bolers, Scamps (?).

I've looked on the "Helpful Links" and none of the window suppliers have anything ready-made like this. I'm also wondering about a multi-pane louver type of window.

Thanx in advance....I know that the good folks on here will come through.

Hi Vic,

Oh that's sad about your egg being hit; but yeah, thank goodness it was not worse.

I have those same windows on my Boler. They were made by Hehr but are no longer in production. You're right that they were installed in many campers back in the day - even in stickies and truck campers, etc. So your best bet for a complete replacement would be finding one for sale used or in an RV salvage yard.

That said, many of the parts are still available - how bad is the damage? Vintage Trailer Supply, for example, has the gaskets and seals, the operator arm, and some of the arm parts. Interstate Metal Fabricators and Pelland Enterprises may also have parts.

www.interstatemetals.com
www.pellandent.com

If you do have to go new, then there are new ones available, but they have radiused corners, so you would need to do a bit of fiberglass work to fill in the square corners. Scamp's parts department has them (their window prices are far better than I have found elsewhere). They are the same general size but just with the radiused corners and a black finish.
