So i have 5 missing windows on my new to me old (69? 70? who knows)shasta. Do I measure from frame to frame? or glass to glass(or where glass should be lol)? Ive been told just get plexi glass..its cheaper! But i found some ok priced used ones on ebay. Im not worried if they are vintage or newer used. Just want windows. Any advice? Thanks friends! JaLee

This 1 is the side left of the camper there is a top missing window, right under that is something previous owners drilled sheet metal over(maybe another window) and right under that is another window type that I will post next.
I don't know the manufacturer of those windows, so I would suggest that you remove them from the trailer walls and take them to a glass company to have the panes replaced. They will have access to the proper gaskets, as well.
As for the last picture of the frame that held an AC unit, I would replace that entire frame with a cargo door. They can be found on Ebay.
Your rear window is different than mine. It originally would have had opening (venting) awning windows in the center section where the A/C is hanging now.
There are definitely a lot better options for adding A/C to it if you wanted to keep it. It pounds on the framework underneath of the windows, among other problems. It isn't likely that you would be able to replace the awning frames in the center, unless the frames were still in the trailer somewhere.
The lower part is another cargo door. In the original layout, there would have been a dinette seat bench inside, and the door would have opened in under that. It looks like your door frame may be intact. It is missing the aluminum that would have been the cover, and the lock mechanism. Looks like it was covered over with plywood from the inside. These cargo doors come up from time to time on ebay, and even may be available through some of the RV places, but sizing it may be a bit tough. The previous owner of my unit had rebuilt the framing in the rear wall, and covered the opening over with a patch (not pretty. But then, I also did not have a dinette bench there...).
