In my deconstruction of my 58 Jewel, I broke the front window ( after it was out) . This is just a single pane of glass for an opening that’s 58x18. The other windows in the trailer are all Jalousie and the rear is a split hehr tilt out. From looking at pics and Larry’s 54, seems like these would have had a front window that was a 3 part, 2 jalousie either side separated by a center solid section. Since I’ve already broken the cheapo 1/8” non safety glass single pane, I would like to try and source a more correct window fir the front.
Let me know if there’s a good source out there where to find one. I’m in the northwest Puget sound area.

No it was sitting out of the frame by itself not in a protected position, when someone working on the trailer (that would be me) bashed in to it. Uhhhg. Just one more thing to replace, I guess I’ll just put a single pane back in (safety glass) and fab a rock guard when I’m close to done, which at this stage will be a while. Just starting to fix the twisted and broken frame. From my experience, I have a vintage “template”, not really a trailer. So it goes…
Trailer Trasher will be your best bet but it will be expensive. Might be better off finding a junk trailer with the kind of window set that you want to canibalize. I've bought whole trailers just for the windows before and I'm looking for one right now that I can canibalize.
God grant me the strength to restore the trailers I can, The courage to strip the parts off the ones I can't, And the wisdom to know the difference...
