If you have a 1966, 1967 or 1968 Airstream, you have beautiful "frameless" Phillips-Corning windows. We've sold replacement glass and many other replacement parts for more than a decade. However, if you are unfortunate enough to have lost the extruded aluminum glass bar that runs across the top of the glass, you cannot restore your windows because you cannot attach the glass to the hinge on the trailer.

Airstream used 3 different types of glass bar during those three years. We've named them Type 1, Type 2 and Type 3.

Type 1 was designed with the glass channel and the front half of the hinge all as a single extrusion. To repair it, simply bed a piece of glass in the channel of the bar with silicone caulk. Then hook the bar into the hinge. This Type 1 model was discontinued before the end of the 1966 model year for a reason unknown.

Type 2 was designed with two extrusions held together with set screws. This type kept the glass channel as the "glass bar" and the front half of the hinge separate but mating. This is the style we have reproduced. You can see the style in the drawing.

Type 3 was introduced in late 1967 or 1968. It had an entirely different way to attach the glass. and instead of a channel or slot in the glass bar, it used a clamp that came apart and would use two strips of double-sided foam tape to hold the glass in place.

We do not know if the Type 2 version we created will work interchangeably with the other style hinges.

Available in three lengths: 17-1/4", 29-1/4" and 39-1/4"

Glass sold separately.
