Glad I can help. As an update I recently worked with the windows again. The riveted portion over time broke. So this time I drilled through the window frame and used small machine screws with nuts on the inside. I believe they were #20s, 3/4" long and stainless steel. Works great. So that's the part I'd definitely suggest changing. Good luck with yours.

Side windows

That's a good tip! Any chance you know where I can score the two side movable window sashes with the hurricane hinge along the top?

Thanks Francesca for requesting verification. I have side windows that basically have two parts. One part is the frame that is riveted to the fiberglass shell and the other part is the sash that hinges up and out where the plexiglass is seated. Along the top of this sash is a hinge designed to prevent water from penetrating between the affixed frame and the movable sash. I was calling that a hurricane hinge. I am hoping to score two of these sashes. Hope this helps clear things up. You may notice that a piece of this hurricane hinge is missing along the top of this hinge.

That's really helpful cause I wanna remove the affixed frame and reapply them with a caulking strip.

Sorry for my density but I'm still not getting the picture- what I see a half-piece of in the pic looks like weatherstripping....

I sure hope somebody with the same type window weighs in, 'cause I've got nothin'!

Jay, you might check this website... or place a phone call during business hours. The hinge is actually called "Better than Hurricane." I know you don't need 4', maybe they can cut you want you need?

Hi Francesca,

Its a metal window frame with a hinge at the top. It goes on the side of a 1976 Scamp 13ft.

Great resource for that hinge. Grant has remnants he is willing to sell me for a lot less. Thanks again.

Today I scored a snazzy lamp for my Gypsy trailer theme.

Oh where do I buy these parts? I need these parts like now. I recently had to take my camper out of the garage and park it outside. I hate to have it outside but I have no other choice.

The first part of the thread has the links to the places I bought each piece. All were online sources. Swisco for the glazing spline and Vintage Trailer Supply - parts and supplies for vintage travel trailers and campers! for the levers and bulb seal. Mike L. used a different lever - I had mine modified - meaning cutting off the bent end. I haven't looked on their website in some time, so maybe there is now something that would work better. The lever slides through the slot in the window frame and then you bend it down (see the pictures early in the thread).
