U Haul CT 13

Is there a chance that anyone might know the wall thickness of a U Haul CT 13? Regarding the area around the side windows. I'd like to get some price quotes but reluctant to pull windows to find out. Need the thickness for the retaining rings. Any thoughts will be appreciated. Thanks. Mike

Search for the guy who replaced his UHaul CT windows with Scamp windows. He might know.

Mike: The side windows are held in with a rubber seal, the front & rear use a trim ring or retaining ring on the inside. Bridget T had posted all the info on what parts to get in her description of how to rebuild the side windows. I have that info written down if you can't find her post. I believe you may have to buy a 50 foot chunk of the rubber seal, I'll split the cost with you if you decide to go that route. And if you find a good deal on windows, let me know as I haven't spent any time researching that recently. I haven't seen where anyone here has posted exactly what to buy and where to get it. The two places I did look for windows were Pelland enterprises [$474 for side window, $606 rear] and Atwood, whose web site is I think, easyRVwindows.com [$390 for the rear window]. Atwood has a corner radius template that you can print out to determine the correct radius, I think we have the 2.5" corner radius windows. I bought that stick on rain gutter from Camping World [free shipping] to put over the windows, but the trailer has been under cover since so I don't know if it has helped with the leaking problem.

I'm Leaving right now for the Blue Ridge Parkway w/o camper. Appreciate all the info. I had a dealer in Hancock, MA do a pressure test on the U Haul. He called yesterday with news that my major leak was the side window because it was "breached". Don't know what that means but he claims I have a "no Leak " camper. We'll see. thanks Mike

Mary and Bob,

I recently bought the "50' chunk" of rubber seal, the locking insert and felt to do my CT13. So far (1 window), it has been much easier to rebuild than I thought it would be. I believe that about 7 foot of seal is needed for each window. Had no idea what I was going to do with the other 36 feet. If you are interested, I'd gladly sell you the balance of the seal and lock (I haven't any extra felt) at the per foot that I paid, plus shipping to you. PM me if you might be interested.
