Hi Jean. Thx, and yes I do have the old windows still.

They would need new seals and one of the cranks is stripped (not sure of the other one). There are no black plastic covers for the rivet anymore either - they all broke as they were very brittle.

Make me an low offer and pay for shipping and they are yours!

EDIT: I'll try to post some pics tomorrow, Jean-L - also, if you have someone close to Toronto Ontario that you know, I could deliver them maybe?

Show Off! Looks like an up-scale model home in miniature!

Ha ha - there are lots of other reno's I've seen that are as nice or nicer!
Pictures do hide some of my imperfections (my patience for such got thinner as it took much more work then I thought, but worth it in the end).

Karl, I totally understand about thinner patience! By the time we got to the end---there was a lot of "whatever--toss me the duct tape!!"

ROTFL - too true Vickie!!

One of my last tasks was to shroud the fridge so the heat off the sides of it would go out the side trailer vent (not be inside the cabinets and trailer). My main ingredients were corro-plast (shrouding walls), duct tape and silicon... oh, and maybe 3 screws. Mind you, one could argue that that's what 'duct' tape is for!

Two good friends were silicon and a glue gun for this project!

EDIT: Seriously, I do find that CLEAR silicon (pigmented doesn't seem as strong?!) is a great camper glue as it will give with components that expand and contract due to temperature, but still hold. Also it's not effected by moisture. It just takes long to 'set up' so clamping etc is required.

Nice job! I especially liked the Aluminum frame on the trailer.

Hi Karl,

I'm new to this forum and just reviewed your thread--quite a bit of what you've done--the mini front dinette, the extended counter, no stove--is similar to what we plan on doing to the 72 boler 13' we just purchased and are going to reno (it has been badly butchered and abused). I really like what you did for windows to replace the jalousies--ours appear to be beyond repair. It appears that the windows you made open--is that true? If so, how does it work? Do you have cranks, or slides, or? I'm assuming you have screens on the inside...any info/pics you can provide would be greatly appreciated. We will have to put so much money into restoring this, that anything we can make rather than buy will be appreciated. Thanks! P.S.--your egg is beautiful!

Hi Janony,

Welcome to the forum!

I likely have more pictures I didn't post, but I need to take more as there may be others who need more info also.

The windows DO open, and yes, I made screen frames as well.

I do not have any opening mechanism rigged, such as a crank or lever (my intention is to rig a lever that would fold to lock - so the lever/rod would protrude thru a rubberized slit in the screen frame, pull in and fold to close/lock; unfold, pust out, to open) Right now there are 1" stove bolts (#6) in each corner that come thru the bottom 2 corners. They go thru a small angled support and then the screen, to the inside. I then use a wing-nut to secure them for travel or bad weather. To open them, we take off the two wing nuts and put a 4-5" piece of drinking straw (easy to replace if they blow away) on each bolt to support the window open.

Not sure that all makes sense. I'll take more pictures soon and I've attached some sketches, but they were rough plan sketches... it'll take me a few days to get pics posted likely...

Karl

Wow--those are ROUGH? sketches?? Apparently you're quite talented no matter what you do. No wonder your trailer has come out so well...

Thanks for the sketches. We're going to try to rework the jalousies, but if we can't, (they're pretty well oxidized and painted camo green...) these windows look like they'll do the trick! Thanks!

Ha, thanks for the compliment Janony - they are rough in that they were for me to visualize - not necessarily to show. Anyway, I will take some pics so you and anyone else interested might see better how I did it. I don't think they are to difficult to build. I love simple (read: not too much work and hard to mess up) but strong solutions. I was quite pleased with how they turned out. I'm only a perfectionist if it doesn't take too long
