u haul ct13 door window

Hi: I need to do something about the window on the door of my CT13. I believe it is about shot. I don't seem to be able to find anything close. I was wondering what others might have done. Considering making a hardwood frame and inserting a smaller unit in that, but can't find anything that small. Possibly make a frame and rout out for a piece of safety glass. Any thoughts will be appreciated. Mike

Here's some ideas: disassemble it and rebuild it as in the old thread by Bridget on rebuilding the side windows. Next idea, remove it, go to a glass shop and get a piece of automotive safety glass cut to the same size as the outer part of the window frame and install it with the replacement weatherstrip that we are using for the side windows, the glass thickness should be close to the same thickness as the original window frame. I had glass cut and installed like this for a tractor cab that I made. Of course a solid glass won't open, but the Uhaul door window doesn't open much. Next idea, Another member here is in contact with an eBay seller that is going to custom make him a side window at a reasonable price. That may be an option. Also look on eBay for a correct size window, sometimes you'll find some listed under teardrop trailers. Just recently on here someone posted a link to a place in California that had used windows, it may have been Francesca? Does Scamp have a door window, I was able to use their rear window.

Hi Mike,

If all the parts are there, you can rebuild it using the same basic parts as the side windows.

Uhaul Side Windows

Does anyone know if the rubber groumet on the door window is the same as the side windows? I could probably rebuild this thing. Thanks for your quick responces Mike

Yes, the locking weather strip is the same between the door and side windows. In the linked thread, note that Bob found a better fitting part.

Note that bob gave Mike only enough weatherstrip to do his side windows, and then sold the rest before realizing it was needed for the door window too. So who has some extra of the AS1456 to sell, plus some 789 lock strip?
