Source for stove and windows and such?

Hola fellow Egg lovers.

There are a few of things I'm trying to source. I want to replace the window on the door of our beloved '72 TrailMite. The existing one is likely the original and has been bent time and again from the door being opened with the window open --- the window then hits the shell and tweaks the corner of the aluminum. Is there some other kind of window that will fit this 19 1/8' x 6 1/4' opening?

I also want to get a pair of rain deflectors like the one above the door for the side windows. Are these available somewhere?


Lastly I want a new stove. The original cover is pitted and the burner controls seem to be worn out --- I have to turn off the propane tank after using the stove or a definite propane smell will develop. The existing stove is 13'x17 5/8


Any input on these will be appreciated.

Vic

That looks like an old Hehr window that we have on our teardrop, and another camper owner here was looking for the crank mechanism. There always seems to be surplus windows of various sizes on ebay. many are listed under teardrop trailers. Can you resize the opening in the door to fit a different window. Stoves are available on ebay too.

These rain deflectors are not distinct to fgrvs they are available in different sizes at the local rv dealer through coastal distribution catalog. The little windows are rare so you might try leaving the window closed and utilizing a door stopper so the door doesn't swing all the way open.

I'm sure you could find an Atwood Cooktop that will fit. Check the size of the hole in the counter top (cutout size) so you know what the smallest you could go is. and then check the max size that would fit. Something like this might be close: Atwood DV20-W 56492 White 2 Burner Drop In Cooktop Trailer Camper RV

Thanks. It needs to be replaced regardless, the latching mechanism is broken.
I'll look for a Hehr replacement.
