Door Window Operator/Crank for 1972 Boler

Looking for the window operator/crank for the original door window on a 1972 Boler. I've called Vintage Trailer Supply and they no longer sell their "Crooked Little Window Opener" and have taken the item off their site. Same with vintagecampers.com.

It's the Hehr 008-101 operator used in the center of the small Hehr Standard vent windows (model 618). Pictures are attached for what I'm looking for and the current window.

I saw someone else mention Blaine Windows, but I can't find a part with the same dimensions? Has anyone used a similar part but adjusted it to fit or could a manual Hehr operator lever work?

Any help is appreciated!

Try vintagecampers.com, you may be able to modify something they have. I have that same window in our teardrop. See them on ebay occasionally.

Also take a look at roof vent mechanisms, that are basically the same design and function, it will just be finding one with similar mounting and you may need to modify the arm. Might be worth looking into if finding a replacement does not work out.

VintageCampers.com is out of stock too. Vintage Trailer Supply rep said they plan to make the operator but don't have a timeline for availability. Looks like we'll have to modify an existing part or are thinking of adding springs to the sides and a pull string (similar to the way the original roof vent operates).

Since you're in California, don't know exactly WHERE since your profile doesn't say, but if you are close to Sacramento... have you checked for the parts you need from RVDoctorGeorge.com

Thanks Donna! We're in the Bay Area and our local trailer shops don't have the part, but never heard of the place in Sacramento. I may have to give them a call or make a trip up to check it out.

If the local place doesn't pan out try eBay. I like to fix things and eBay is a great place to find obsolete parts. Raz

Try fletchers trailer sales in Trumansburg NY. He's got a lot of vintage parts. Has a website but doesn't list all the window operators but claims to have many different ones. I met him at a TCT rally, nice guy.
