Wanted: Boler Jalousie Side Window

I am seeking a replacement left side window for my 1970 Boler 1300.
The current window is a stock, Berdick(?) 2-pane jalousie (torque) window measuring 20"H x 28"W on the outside frame. It is aluminum finish with square corners.
The current window has one pane with broken hardware and is permanently siliconed shut...plus the window leaks.
If no replacement found, I may consider rebuilding it.
I appreciate any lead.

Various manufacturers make awning type windows. Here is one:

I don't know if the square corner ones are still made.

There are threads which detail how to fill in the corners on figerglass.

Good luck.

Whether you think you can or think you can't, you're right.

Hi Rob,

Yes, Berdick (Canadian company) made the larger jalousies for some of the mid-70's Bolers. One note that might help you in your search is that the non-Berdick windows I have seen (in a later 70's Boler) are very very similar, and I don't think you would have a problem replacing your window with one of those. In other words, any of the similar, square-cornered jalousie windows from a Boler, Scamp, etc. 13-er would probably work.

As far as I know, no-one makes the square-cornered ones new anymore. And yes, you can fill in the corners with fiberglass and use radius-cornered ones, but that would not be desirable to me because I would then want to replace all of my windows so that they were all matching and all black (ours are silver). That would turn it into a much-larger and more expensive job. Also, the new jalousie windows of the size that fit in our dinette area only have 50% of the opening area of our square-cornered ones.

Luckily for us, some people prefer sliders and so change their windows, and you may find one

If not, here are some places where you can find repair parts:

Vintage Trailer Supply:
Vintage Trailer Supply - Vintage travel trailer parts and supplies!

Pelland Enterprises:
RV Parts and Motorhome Parts Online Outlet

Interstate Metals:
Interstate Metal Fabricators, Inc.

I have done some parts replacing on mine, so I may be able to help with specific questions (although it was mostly seals).
