I was looking for some direction on rebuilding my surf-side windows
and couldnít really find any specific information, part numbers etc. Anyone who mentioned doing it was talking about cutting the gaskets down to fit, I didnít really want to do that... So I thought Iíd post what Iím doing so hopefully it will save someone else the hassle I had to go thru.
Now this is a 1978 surfside
trailer so Iím not sure if they are all the same.
Here is my part list ordered thru vintage trailers - I didnít order the U gasket for the window frames..... it was more then I am prepared to pay. I will either use butyl tape or silicone the windows
in the frame, Iíll have to see when I get there. I used different cranks then came with the original. These were cheaper and in stock. If you want the originals I believe they are the same as the bolerís. I will be installing a spacer to make up the difference, the original has a longer sleeve that fits over the rod.... I will update with pictures as I go.
The bottom screws were seized solid I had to heat them slightly then spray with penetrating fluid.... they eventually came out, but just barely. Please if you have any questions just ask, Iíll do my best to answer them.
