Jalousie Trade for Modern?

I was thinking about replacing a set of classic Scamp Jalousie dinette windows with a set of the modern type. Would anyone be interested in swapping?

Keep in mind,you cant have the newer style windows open when it's raining like you can with the jalousie windows.

Don't get me wrong... I love the old style windows. But in this case i'm thinking a little outside the box. They are really tough to clean up and restore. And I am going for a complete modernization. And I'n this case the front and rear windows have already been replaced with the pop-in plex that I despise! So they will look like more of a match I hope.

It's one of those experiment things. I personally like the newer look. But the old school are pretty classy too.

Thank you!

With the addition of Maxxair vents, you can and without the "red rider" effect of jalousie windows, also a roof vent cover is needed to get full ventilation in the rain without infiltration.

I wish I could! I would love to have jalousie windows. Sigh. Either way, you've got work ahead of you. Either cleaning/polishing the jalousies or fiberglass work to put the radius corner windows in... ya gotta fill those corners. Aluminum polishes up really nice. Looks bright and clean. But, then you'd need to protect the finish or they'll "corrode" again. I'd suggest usin Flitz. Works to "seal" aluminum.

Hi, David-
I think your market is probably somebody who's doing an "all-original restoration". Your best bet might be to go ahead and put in your new windows and sell the old ones.
You might even make a bit on the deal, since the "original" jalousies are pretty hard to find.
And it's possible that your oldies will fit other trailer makes...

Good luck!

Francesca

Fiber Stream cushions

Any Fiber Stream owner interested in the the set of cushions and who will be at the Bandon campsite next month. I need to get rid of them, I don't have the room to safely store them and I bought mattresses that keeps the bed made permanently so I don't need them and hate to just throw them out since they are in good condition. If interested, just send me a note and I will bring them along. Even if you don't attend and you live near the I 5 corridor, we could meet at a rest stop or station.

Thank you everyone for your comments and input- I have decided to keep the windows. The front and rear are the standard "Pop-In's" and don't match the rest, but when I realized how hard it would be to replace the Door window with one of those... I bailed out on the project and will keep it the way it is. I wanted to make them all match.... So thank you for the comments!

BTW - Donna.... Some day I will find you a full set of Jalousie windows and maybe we can hire Robert to install them all fancy for you
