Robert may not know what particular seal is needed for a particular trailer brand and the windows. I mean, there's a LOT of them when you consider all the classics. He's probably waiting for you to tell him which trim you need, not the other way around.


Maybe...

Probably worth contacting them directly through the website, although they should be checking the forum posts they started I can understand the challenges in missing some requests

Take a photo of a cross section of the seal/gasket with a ruler set right next to it for dimensional reference. Then email them the photo.

Or cut a small slice of the seal/gasket and send it to them in the mail with your contact information.

Seeing is knowing when it comes to these things. There are hundreds of makes of small trailers and they would not be able to know what windows were used on what trailers as they don't own the trailers.

Their focus started with a few makes and models but as they grow it will expand with knowledge submitted not by them to us but instead submitted by us to them as to what seals we show to them that come from our various trailers. Once they get that information then they will post it on their website with the seals if they are going to sell those particular seals we need.

In the meantime maybe we should have a sticky thread just for windows on the various makes, it is certainly a subject that seems to come up most weeks. I started a thread for the gasket seals needed for the Trails West Campster windows as there was not any information in the forum for that and it was not to be found elsewhere on the internet.

He wasn't asking which seal...we want to know what series window was used if he has that information.. I know the seals are hard to figure out that's why I ended up buying probably $20.00 worth of 6" samples at $.50 each from Vintage just waiting on them to arrive. What I plan to do is match everything I can then post a list of what works for future reference......

That would be very helpful!

What would be helpful from the OP would be some way to tell the various series apart.

That would be helpful also, I've never seen a tag or marking telling anything about the windows..

My answer would still be the same. But KC gave a better one

There is no way to know which trailer manufacturer used which window manufacturer. Sometimes, the trailer manufacturer changed window manufacturers on a yearly basis. The best way is to try and match a seal cross section or actually find the manufacturer stamped into the aluminum frame. Most Hehr windows were stamped with Hehr and the Series number. Hope that helps. Robert

More info about vintage trailer windows. Knowing the trailer manufacturer that the window is on does not tell us what the window's manufacturer or Series number is. During the 50's, 60's, and 70's, there were 3 specific window manufacturers: Hehr, Phillips, and Woodlin. There were also one or two "generic" windows used on trailers during this time. Hehr windows made up about 90% of the market. The Hehr, Phillips, and Woodlin windows all have the manufacturer name stamp on them which helps when trying to find seals and gaskets. The generic windows usually do not have stamps on them making it much harder to find the parts. Hope that helps. Robert

What window and series is on a Trillium?n The easiest way to find out would be to send me a photo of your window and especially any cross section of a gasket or seal that you can take a photo of. If I have a match, I will send you a sample so you can do a fit check before you purchase anything.
