Hi Alva,


A search gave me this link to Entry Window Replacement.  I haven't read the whole thing but there are other links that may be helpful.

Thanks Carol,for the link for a replacement door window with pull down shade. I did see a post several years ago which prompted me to go to e-bay site, they were gone. It is way too snowy and cold in WI now but I will revisit the links you shared next Spring. Reading some of the reviews I did not know you must open the door to pull the shade up or down. Something to consider.

Happy holidays,

The rough window opening in the door is 24" high X 15 wide." (This dimension is only for the doors in the 17's. It does not apply to the smaller window openings on trailers that don't have the "flat door," and will not fit the curved doors on the 13's and 16's.)


And I installed one of these several years ago, when they were only $170.00, but that was before the company was sold, and now they want a ridiculous price for them. Just sayin'.
