Window question

Hello All. We are looking at purchasing an ‘87 Bigfoot lil Bigfoot. My question is…how do you know when to replace windows or when only the seal needs replacing? There is leakage around the front and rear windows. Thanks for any help!

I think front and rear windows are just pieces of plexiglass set in a rubber gasket. If not, maybe a picture to clarify what you’re dealing with?

Given the difficulty of getting fixed plexiglass windows in and out, I’d be inclined to cut new plexiglass along with a fresh seal. As long as they’re not cracked or crazed, they’re still good, but as they tend to scratch and discolor over time, might as well start fresh. Use the old as a template.

I’ve never done it, but there are old threads and maybe a YouTube on how to R&R the plexiglass windows. Did I say it’s tricky?
