1976 Ventura Gentle Renovation

Hi,

I just bought a 1976 Ventura. My question is about the window manufacturer and if replacement parts are available. I have searched the the usual vintage RV sites with no luck. Does anyone know who made these windows or if a suitable replacement can be purchased. The window opening is 28.75 x 21.25 inches and it is the three-pane jalousie style. There are no markings on the window.

Thanks in advance…
I've posted some pics here if you're interested.

Paul,
Parts for the windows can be bought from Vintage Trailer Supply. I have purchased the crank mechanism and gaskets and they also have the long arms, hinges, handles etc
For example this is the crank mechanism that is generally ordered by Ventura owners:

Thank you Patricia,

I have checked them out but I think my window may be a little too far gone for the parts they supply. I may end custom-fabricating the aluminum extrusions I need. Either that, or settle for 'close-but-not-perfect' replacement. Today I pulled out most of the interior and removed the water-damaged sections of the wall and replaced the floor and floor bolts.
