Do you know if the old windows (the silver crank out ones on the side) can be changed out for the new ones?
I'll bet the new ones are more efficient, but don't know if they are the same size.
Thanks and hope to see more pictures of your work
Ohhh my. Please don't change those wonderful jalousie windows
for the radius. You don't know how lucky you are to have them.
Jalousie's can be kept open in the rain, something the sliders can't do (without adding a fugly part to the outside of the window frame). My Scamp is just a bit to new to have come from the factory with jalousies. As much as I love my Scamp... I really, really wish I had jalousies.
If you need help with cleaning, parts or repairs, we are here to help with all kinds of info.
Besides, complete window replace is in the top four biggest mod expense (axle, A/C, 3-way frig, windows.. not in any particular order).
Keep the money in your pocket and spend it on fuel to go new places and site fees. Make memories, not this mod. YMMV
