Surfside window dilemma

Hello All,

Just wondering if anyone out there knows where I can find some elicited rectangular jailhouse windows for a 1970 something surfside? I would prefer to keep it original but anything that can be riveted in would be fine by me. Thanks in advance for all your help.

Berth? Never hears of them. The glass is broken and they will need to be rebuilt, but I have 3 of 4.

eBay or a RV salvage yard. There are many RV salvage yards.

I know two outfits for RV windows, Hehr and SunView. If you can't get the glass replaced, I'd take some careful measurements and give them a call.

Thanks for the info I will look into rebuilding since I think finding anything other than the original is impossible.

I think the only problem with that is my window cut outs are square and if my research is correct most manufacturers only make windows for the round corners these days. Guess rebuilding is my best option.

I don't know any Canadian sources but there are USA sources.



This company sells component parts for windows on vintage travel trailers. You could make a new windows from scratch with components if you needed to.

This company does custom make square framed aluminum windows for travel trailers. Pricey but they will be the correct size and ready to put in place.

this company sells a lot of the gaskets that are needed for restoring vintage trailer windows.
