Trip number 2 was a COMPLETE success. It was great having everything on hand.

This Sunday, Dad came over and we installed the front picture window. I am soooo glad I had the factory frame out the window opening for me. I cut out the sheet metal with a saber saw. On the window flange we attached a 1/8 by 1 inch butyl rubber caulking strip.

Having that front picture window is important to me.  My Shasta trailer had one along with the two side windows.

The size is 18 x 60 inches. (5Ft). The glass is the same glass we use here in Florida for hurricane impact resistant windows. It is made like a car windshield. Two layers of glass with a heavy plastic film in the middle. The total thickness is 5/16 of an inch. It also has a light charcoal tint.
