About the VTS Rescued Collection
Vintage Trailer Supply is proud to offer a fine collection of old trailer parts that have been rescued from insurance wrecks and other trailers that were parted out. We do not part out trailers ourselves, but we are always on the lookout for high quality vintage trailer parts that can be used to make the restoration of other trailers possible.

We keep these parts at our Santa Fe, NM facility where they are available for inspection by appointment.

This item and all our rescued used parts have flaws. We think these offer excellent value and have very limited availability, but they will likely need work to make them fit and function well on your trailer. Expect dents, scratches, stray holes and corrosion. And they are dirty. If accessory hardware is present, you should expect it to need reconditioning or replacement. Gaskets and glazing are likely going to need to be replaced, especially when windows are double pane. Please see the links below to replacement parts that are still available and may fit this window.

Not all flaws may be shown, but we are honest and disclose what we notice when we think it is significant. All available photos are in this description. No other photos or product details are available.

A word about glass tinting: Some Airstream windows are lightly tinted, some are dark tinted, and some are untinted. Some tints are pigment in the glass and some are film applied to the glass. Please consider the tint match when you buy a window.

These items have a very specific return procedure and warranty so please read the fine print below.

Installation Footnote
1969 a few early 1970 Airstreams used a different hinge than later Airstreams. If you are attempting to fit this sash on an existing backframe hinge, you may need to re-use the hinge (only) from your old existing sash rather than using the hinge that comes on this sash. You'll see whether this is the case for your trailer when you receive the new window. If that's the case for you, the hinge from the old sash will need to be transferred to the new. The best way to do that is to:

  1. Remove the old hinge from the old sash.
  2. Remove the new hinge from the new sash.
  3. Put old hinge back in its mating trim at the top of the window.
  4. Put the new sash in the opening.
  5. You may want to ship it up 1/16" of an inch or so to get a good fit with adequate clearances.
  6. Place the old hinge at the top of the new sash.
  7. Mark holes.
  8. Install the old hinge on the new sash and it should be good.
