Question Replacement Windows

Hello , Iím Heidi and new to the club. I have what I believe is a 79 baby camper. I am lost as where to find vin, model etc. I have my cute lil camper on the back of my part of my property, in the woods. A good get away spot to think and just watch the wildlife. A few young men thought it would be funny to use my camper as a target for playing with BB guns. They shot every window and damaged other things. These destructive teens have been identified and parents making them pay for the damage. Any ideas what these windows cost and where I can get them. Trying hard to fix it as it was my husbands who just past in February. Any and all info and help greatly appreciated

Hi, welcome to the club from Maryland. Sorry to hear about your husband and the misfortune with your camper.

There is a row of tabs on the home page. Click on FILES, then click on BROCHURES. Click on your year and you should be able to identity your model. The VIN number might be stamped into the side of the trailer tongue or Iíve read that itís sometimes under the entry door threshold.

Not sure about replacement windows, but replacing the glass is more than likely doable with the windows in place. My 1996 T-1700 had Hehr windows and I was able to replace a broken glass without removing the window.

Good luck.

Welcome Heidi!

First of all, when you describe it as a baby camper, can you stand up in it? If not, then you have a pretty rare Sunline.

The serial number should be stamped into the left side of the front coupler, or right behind it. It may be a little hard to read due to rust or paint layers, so be prepared to scrape a little. It should be a pretty deep stamping. It's going to be likely 5-7 digits, mostly likely 6, all numbers. I call it a serial number because the proper 17 digit VIN format did not come out until 1980, which Sunline started using half way through that model year.

In many cases, the serial number tag is under the entry door threshold, but it may not be visible in your case. The newer ones are. I think these older ones have it tucked under the door frame, so you'd have to remove the door frame from the trailer to find it. That's a last resort, if it isn't on the frame. Sometimes people have new couplers welded on the frame that cover up the serial number, so under the door is the only option.

If you're lucky enough to still have it, your trailer originally came with a piece of paper that was a quality control certification, adhered to the wall inside the largest cabinet or in the toilet closet. If you have this, the serial number was written on there.

If you can attach some pictures, I can confirm the model and year for you. The brochure can help too.

Like John said, replacing the glass in your Hehr windows is a better option than full replacement. A glass shop that would replace your windshield is a great place to start for ordering this. Hopefully the cost isn't too high since these are small panels of glass. While you could do it with the windows on the trailer, I think removing them is a better option since the seal tape is likely original. Clean up the surfaces of all old tape and re-install with new RV butyl tape to ensure a good seal. Finding new windows isn't a great option because almost all RV windows now are radius corner, so you'd have to cut the window holes bigger or fill in the holes in the corners, which wouldn't look good. Entire new windows, plus screens and inner trim rings, wouldn't be a cheap option either.

Any good glass shop worth their salt should be able to make any size/configuration glass temper and install it.
