Slider Windows for 1972 05 Model Eagle

Post by Dtsmith »

We are now looking for Slider Windows for a 1972 05 Model. The outfit in Vancouver, Wa is no longer making windows for bus conversions. The person who was making them has retired. If you know of any windows or where we can get custom windows made we appreciate it. Thank you.

I have four of those windows with screens in my 1975 Model 05 that I got from that outfit in Washington (Peninsula?), but I am in Ohio, and I guess that you are in Washington State. Nowadays, the cost of shipping is not trivial. I had hoped to transfer them to my Model 15, but it has taller windows.
I don't know of any particular outfit that could make them, but there might be a stock size RV or Marine existing window that would work. Custom windows are going to cost plenty.

DoubleEagle, we have 8 brand new side slider windows that fit your Model 15. They are too tall for our model 05. We would be willing to trade 4 of them if the freight isn't too bad. Suggestions?

That would definitely be a possibility, provided the shipping is not too outrageous. We would need a sturdy wooden crate on a pallet to get the best rate. The windows on my Model 15 are 34 X 53" on the outside frame, and I could use at least 4 up to 7. I have eight windows, but one already is a slider. On the Model 05, the two rectangular ones are 29 3/4 X 52 3/4" on the outside frame, and two with the leading edge angled, same dimension on the height and top width. The Model 05 windows have a dark grey tint, and have screens. It would be nice if this would work out. The cheapest freight would involve shipping to a terminal for pick up rather than local delivery.

Thanks for the phone call. It looks like these windows were not intended for any model Eagle, they must be for some other brand of bus or RV. 31.5" high is too much for Model 05's and 10's, and not enough for Model 15's. The 55" width at the outside flange is too much for all Eagle Models. It would be best to post the exact measurements and pictures on some of the other bus forums. Somebody might recognize what they were intended for.
