Are there used oem windows out there?
Nope. Go to a good glass shop and have them repair what you have. Can-o-worms if you try to replace. And the original had a nice jalousie window on one side.
Used windows available? Sure. Start calling RV salvage yards, they are out there. Given the low production numbers on the Trillium, it could take a while.
One side of the window was an escape
hatch (solid window). If he didn't mess up the jalousie side, repair would be pretty straight forward.
OK, I see the dope messed up the jalousie side. If the framing is still there, I'd get it fixed. Jalousie parts are readily available. The entire window is not.
Owning a vintage trailer is like owning a vintage home. The search for parts can be endless. McGiver skills are a must. And stocking up on some parts can be a good idea. For instance, my 1977 uses a Bargman L-400
door lock. Its been out of production for decades. And this lock was used on other brands, most notably Airstreams. Vintage Airstream owners are able to pay top dollar for replacements, so there is competition out there (on the locks).
I would have thought 1980 model would be escape
hatch on one side, jalousie on the other. Thats the way my 1977 was built. Earlier years an escape
hatch was not required so you will see jalousie on both sides of the rear window. And some Trilliums have the escape hatch on one side of the front window. Bad idea IMHO because if the rock guard is down, you are not getting out.
