Trailer: 1977 Scamp
Posts: 1
Hi all. I'm looking at purchasing a 1977 Boler - everything looks great with it, except the windows don't close all the way when they are cranked down. So here's my dumb question: Will it just need some crank parts replaced and are they readily available? or do the entire windows need to be replaced? and how readily available are replacement windows? Everything else with the windows are fine, they just do not seal completely tight when they are cranked closed. Thanks for any help.

Hi Doug, I'm sure someone will answer up shortly. In the meantime, here's a link to a number of Window and Window Parts from our Helpful-Links pages. As you can tell, there's a number of resources for the jalousie windows.

Hi: Doug...The bulb seal that goes across the bottom of the window frame where the window glass and frame meets is avail from Vintage Trailer Supply as are the cranks and other window parts for the Jalousie windows. Airstream used these windows and thats why VTS has resurrected some of the seals and gaskets. That's where I got a lot of seals and window parts for our former '77 Boler.
