1977 Scamp Window Leaks

My former 1982 Scamp had plexiglass windows in the front and rear and jalousie windows on either side of the dinette and in the kitchen. Never had a problem with leaks.

The single-pane push out windows in my Ď77 are completely new to me. The front window, especially, takes in a ton of water while driving and parked. Iím torn. Part of me wants to trouble shoot and fix it, but the other part of me thinks Iím about waste a ton of time and that itíll never truly be water tight. Considering just putting plexi in for that reason.

PO pulled out windows and resealed ~ 7 years ago, but itís been stored outside since then. I will keep it garaged when not in use from here on out.

Iím not a purest that has to have everything in the camper original to the era. My top priority is that it is as water tight (as possible).

Iíve read the threads on the forum regarding these particular windows, including Jennyís. Iíve seen how folks recommended fixing these windows but couldnít find any updates as to how solid the fixes were.
