Scamp window

Hoping someone out there has a working 2 pane jalousie side window (square cornered) for a Scamp. Hoping to happen upon one before I take the plunge and order new ones. Thanks.

I believe the size is appr. 24wide and 18 tall.

FYI: I just bought a brand new one direct from Scamp for approximately $140.00. You'll have to weigh the options to see if a used one is worth the effort over a brand-new one. For what it's worth....

Mike T,

Did you order the windows for your 13CT? I'm rebuilding mine right now, and would much rather have jalousie windows. Do the Scamps have the same rubber type mount or do they use the inside screwdown frame?

Thanks,

Marty D

I'm not Mike T. But the slider windows (or newer Jalousies) use an interior clamp ring. Only the plexiglass windows use the gasket and lockstrip. And the plexi windows are only used on the front and some rear (older Scamps with curved backs) years of trailers.

Hope this helps

Hi Mike: How much glass work was necessary for the window fit? I'm very reluctant to attempt the glass part. Never done ant thing like that. Mike

I've never done it either, sorry to say. I have a friend who was nice enough to do the job while I was away. I would have loved to help him and learned myself. All I know is that the side windows needed to be made 1 3/4" smaller length and width. The front and rear were actually a little small so he had to cut the opening wider to fit. That's easier of course. I think you could search this site or even google fiberglassing to find out how. It's worth it from my experience.

Mike
