Boler radiussed window search

HI Folks:

I would like to buy reasonably priced replacement sliders for the dinette windows of my 1979 Boler located in Western Canada.
Would anyone be able to offer advice on such a source.
thanks

RJMoore

HI Richard, welcome to FiberglassRV... we're glad you're here. I think the problem will be "reasonably priced." Every once in a blue moon, someone will post a link for a salvage trailer where it's being parted out. But, don't hold your breath. You'll need to know precisely what size you need and when you see it... jump on it.

Is there something wrong with the current windows?

try easyRVwindows.com , it's Atwood company, although you may not consider them "reasonably priced". They have a radius guide you can print out, and a place on their website where you can put in the size window you want and it will give you the price. Pelland Enterprises is another company but I think their prices are higher yet. Bob

radiussed windows

Thanks Donna and Bob;
The old windows aren't terrible, but I am redoing the entire inside and didn't want to risk and leakage. I hoped the slider windows might give more ventilation as well.

Cheers
Rick

Hi Richard, the problem with radius windows... is rain! If you have the old-style jalousies... you can keep them open, not so with radius (without adding something). If you're looking to repair and make the jalousies water tight, we're here to help with part numbers, etc.

hi and welcome

if you are near fort saskatchewan there is a trailer recycler there that is very reasonable

if you put the sliders in you will loose half your window opening and get less ventilation

reseat the windows with butyl and you should be good as new

Not to steal the thread, but since you offered...... is there a good link for a thread on rebuilding these? Mine either need to be replaced like Richards, or rebuilt

Not knowing exactly what kind of jalousies you have, here's a couple of links to check out:

List of seals to restore old style scamp jaloused windows

Window seals & hardware for 76 Scamp tilt out windows

and a source: Window Replacement Components

Sorry for not noticing your request sooner. Hope this helps.
