New Windows?

Good morning,

I have recently purchased a 1971 TrailsWest Campster that I am doing a frame up restoration on. I have completed a new frame and I am getting ready to start on the inside. Unfortunately, the windows are cracked and the seals are shot. I have been searching the internet and local dealers for new windows for the unit. I am at a loss right now because I have been unable to find replacements. The windows are 48"x 20" and one the is 36"x 20". Does anyone know where I can find them? I would appreciate any help that you might be able to provide.

Go to Google and search for RV Salvage Yard. There are RV salvage yards spread all over the country.

Thank you for the help. Kenny, to answer your question, the frames are molded and broken. I has thought about getting the aluminum tig welded but thought it would be easier to simply replace instead of patch together.
