well the only cosmetic problem with the new camper is the stoneguard is completely gone. Including brackets and stanchion and all. Just a window with holes i need to caulk up! Anybody ever made one? If so, what did you use? Just looking for ideas...Thanks,

I've never made one. But in my imagination, sitting in front of my computer, it's easy. . I would think a piece of 1/4 inch plywood or some thin paneling cut to match the outside window frame would work. Get a big sheet and cut three of these panels out. Then cut the center of two panels out so they are just a ring which will thicken just about the last 1.5 inch of the outside edges of the whole panel.
Glue and clamp and probably screw it all together and let it dry. Paint it well with an exterior paint. Then get a big piano hinge from Home Depot and mount the panel to the trailer. Get some of the latches from the RV store and mount them to hold the panel closed.
Ok, in theory it sounds easy, but I've never tried it.

The skin blew off mine 0n RT95 trip, first I made one from a sheet of clear plastic but it cracked, mad a second one of lauwan plywood (wanted something light) pop riveted on the frame. I worked great, and was nice and light, paint, and looked god. TT was a Wilderness, by Fleewood like the Prowler.
