They pretty much do. The old latches were already there, so decided to keep them. Once you replace the arms on the inside, you can then see how it goes and add the latches later if you want to. The latches were inexpensive (about $2.50 a pair).
Good luck! Let us know how it goes!

Looks like I have waited long enough for someone else to figure out the problem. Thanks for your thinking caps. I fully stripped the 77S13 and have been slowly making mods, but those window props have been a real puzzle. The old props appear to be just pot metal and at this age they are breaking. I do wish that the props could be longer so that the windows could be opened wider to catch a breeze.

The Hehr #614's, as you noted, need to be modified in order to match the holes in the window frames. It's too bad that these aren't just right as we ordered them.
Also, on my '76 Scamp 13' trailer the inside latches meant to lock down the link levers are at least 2" above the length of these Hehr #614's. I gave this part an unfavorable review.
Where did you take your levers to have them modified?

Thank you

Just an update: I'm in NW Oregon and the trailer is outdoors. The rains have made window work hard to do but I took farther steps today and made the entry below. We're anxious to get out in the trailer!

I took them to a machine shop because I didn't have a tool to cut them myself and weld them to the mirror bracket. For the attachments on the inside I used rivets to attach them to the window frame. I wish there was a perfect solution to our windows, but this works just fine. Good luck!

I've found a metal fabricator who says that he can make correct link levers for me. The #614's are just not correct. They won't fasten to the window and the inside arm is too short to reach the brackets intended to lock the windows closed. I'll let everyone know how they work once he's made them. I don't have a price yet but will post that too. I'll return the incorrect link levers to Vintage Trailer Supply

Like I said, they aren't perfect - but they do work once you make the modifications and weld the mirror bracket. I felt it was much easier (or cheaper) to make the modifications and just move the bracket on the inside, than to have a lever made from scratch. But maybe that is the way to go.
Yeah, let us know how much they are going to charge you. I hate to play the gender card, but I realize I might have been taken advantage of. The man that took my order was a bit grouchy. I had them attach everything to the window frame and I paid $300. I didn't shop around and had no idea on how much to expect. I just wanted my windows to work, so I went with it. Seems high to me.

Find a shop that does lots of aluminum window and screen work for homes. I found one near Portland and he seemed to have everything in every size. Good luck.

59-067 5/16" Frame Drop-in Glass Spline : SWISCO.com

Unfortunately, you'll pay almost as much in shipping as the spline....

Hi, Jenny

Thanks for such a detailed description!
I thought folks might also like to know that the hardware (levers etc) on the pictured windows is the same as used on my 1956 Shasta and very similar to that on my 1952 Angeles...
Those looking for parts might do well to check out local "Old Junk Trailers" burial grounds.

Thanks for the info in this thread. I need to order some new window seal as the gaskets on my windows are pretty dry and a couple of them leaked during the rain we experienced on my last trip. Now I know where to purchase it.
As I've said before this forum is an invaluable aid to vintage trailer owners! :-)

Thanks for this thread. I am just at the start of renovating all of my windows, and I found all this information very, very helpful. I've been removing the screens as I take apart and clean the windows, and I'm wondering what kind of gasket I can use when I put new screens in.

But, I am thinking more about how I am going to replace the levers. Out of 5 windows with levers, so a total of 10 levers, I only have 6 in place. So I need to replace at least 4, and I might go ahead and replace all 10 as long as I'm at it. The levers were originally riveted into place, and I'm wondering whether I will have to rivet new ones in place, or whether I can simply use sheet metal screws. I am hoping that I will be able to find a metal fabricating shop to make the new levers.

Metal fabricator

This place has on file the design of some levers that will work to prop open the end windows like the ones on our '76 Scamp 13'
They aren't perfect. I need to go back over there with the trailer so that I can show him the modification that needs to be made, but the ones I have do work.
I got a rivet gun at a hardware store, and a variety of rivets, and riveted them in place. It's easy to do.
