OMG! I'm so excited! Found the glazing strip for the back window of our 62 compact! Fits perfectly, same profile as original and despite the name, it is light gray not clear. Very supple, easy to work with. Of course, I don't have the glass for it yet, was waiting for this delivery to make sure it would work otherwise I would have had to go with plexi.
It is at Vintage Trailer Supply. Called Hehr Clear-View Glazing Strip. Only available in 24' and 48' foot rolls. $29.99 for the 24' package. The description threw me off because they said it was for Air Streams. Now I don't feel quite as bad for breaking the back window.

Oh, that's awesome! You should be sure to pass on to them that it works for the 62 Compact; maybe they can add that to the web page description and make some others really glad, too! I'm happy for you!
Assuming you got the 24 foot strip, what are you doing with the other 18 feet?
Not sure yet. Will probably be 15 feet left over (window measures approx 36 x 15) assuming I don't mess up cutting the miter corners and have to recut, but I'm scared this may shrink like the original did, so I will probably hang onto it for a little while. If I decide to sell it, do you want first dibs?
