Bummer, you are a month late.

New old stock uhaul side windows

Are you sure you cannot rebuild it?

On the right window the frame was cut with a hacksaw in two places. The left window is covered in construction adhesive. I am trying to soak that window in acetone to remove the glue. So far it has only removed the paint on the frame.

I'm a little on unclear on the window locations. When referring to the windows, it's good to use the same designations as car windows (i.e. 'driver side' and 'passenger side').

Hopefully, with the number of UH owners that have replaced windows, there will be someone willing to part with their old ones. They'll likely need to still be rebuilt with some new window gasketing, but they won't be covered with construction adhesive. (gads, the things that people use to 'fix' problems.....)

Unfortunately, I am not yet ready to part with mine.....

Pam my two main concerns are the driver and passenger side windows. The driver side window was glued to a piece of plywood and glued to the camper with construction glue. The passenger side window was cut with a hacksaw in two places.

What Pam is saying is that a number of people recently bought the new but old stock windows that were briefly available. There may be someone that will sell you their old windows, which you can rebuild or just reuse.

Keep asking here and at the uhaulcampers.com site.

Robert, you may not even have original Uhaul windows there. Sounds like someone may have tried to adapt another camper window as I did, but in a much cruder way. Looks like a real butcher job was done to your Uhaul. I would have to really think about trying to salvage it if it were mine, so I give you a lot of credit for taking on this project.

Bob both windows are the same size and stamped property of Uhaul. I have to agree that they did a real butcher job. I am considering using a heat gun to remove the glue from the fiberglass.

They must be originals then. Previous owner must not have wanted to buy new weatherstrip!

Be gentle with the heat. You may want to try other various solvents - mineral spirits, lacquer thinner, alcohol, acetone, caulk remover. Something will cut it.

Worst case, buy Scamp windows and modify the opening size. That is what Bob did.

Today with a heat gun and putty knife. I was able to remove part of the construction glue from the fiberglass. It's still a mess and It will still take many hours to remove. But it seem to be doing the job.

Are all the glass parts there? Can you repair the hacksaw cut window with epoxy or something similar? If so, you may be able to rebuild these using the UHaul Side Window thread as a guide.
