Looks great, good to see another Amerigo getting rescued!
Where did you end up getting your windows & door thru?

Hi, Docbear, looking good. I like your framing around the windows. What size lumber are you using there? And agree nice work and looks good! And asking along with SteveV, where did you find your windows & door?


It IS good to see another amerigo being restored!

So far no wood. All framing is composite decking ripped down. All windows were purchased on ebay. Look under 25x40 RV window. Seller is (bottomdollarsurplusinc)

Oh, my. So smart! If we had it to do over again...definitely the composite! AND we'd have done the fiberglass floor, too, like Leoni Belcher in her amerigo.


Ebay is amazing...I'd never have thought of looking there for windows!

Looks great, love the idea of using composite for the framing! My husband and I are just starting work on our 1973. Did you happen to keep any of the old windows? I would love to buy them if you do still have any. I am missing just one window and really want to keep it all original if I can...
