Hello. This is my second post/question. I was lucky enough to find a 1972 loflyte The previous owner has ruined the first section of a triple window in the dinette, kitchen area on the side of the trailer by destroying it and putting an A/C home sized window unit in . I have torn it out, and the main aluminum frame is bent but in tact. Can anyone tell me what the best method of creating a window to replace the ac unit? I know it wont be original, or match the factory aluminum trim...but i dont want to put another window unit it. suggestions please!! thank you.
If you can take a picture of the window and the missing jalousie section. Give me the measurements of the opposite side jalousie window frames.
I have several windows that can be disassembled and refit to your window, provided that I have the correct size.
I had the same issue with the center solid pane that should have been in the front window of our '70 Starflyte. The PO added an AC Unit in it's place. I had a perfect size jalousie window and turned the opening into an operational window.
Anything is possible if you can get hold of the right parts.

Mmmm.. I m', with Chris on the checking the opposite side. But ya know? I am in the process of changing out a small window at bunk level in my girl. Seems nobody has one, so I figured I would start taking apart some of the windows that I scraped from a Compact in Charlotte. These things are mass produced with the same horiz rails and verticals. You can scrap one and stick build one smaller. I think that you should pull the whole frame out. It is a one piece unit. Take some rails from another, create your bottom rail and work it all together again. Once you get it on a table brother it's really not that bad at all. Even the glass and there frames as well Now, with out posting alot of the stuff that I am pulling together, here is one that I pull from that Compact. The thing is put together with a few screws and some snap rings. These things are "Cookie Cutters" and fabricated to the space required.. good luck. and when you get closer to knowings what you need.. length wise let me know. I think that this one is too square for your rectangular profile.
For finding the correct size jalousie window pane frames for your Shasta, simply measure the opposite 2 pane frames. They should be the exact same size. It will be easier to measure if you open the window.
