Hello all,

I'm a caravan virgin ( :ohmy: ) and I've inherited a 1990 vintage Abbey GTS 215 with only one significant issue, other than general wear and tear. The kitchen window had signs of damp around it, a little brutality with a Stanley knife and screwdriver proved the wooden battens along the bottom and up one side are rotten.

I've researched how to do the repair but I'm wondering if there is a place I can source a generic replacement window, I suspect spares for a 29 year old van will not be easy to source.

Thanks in advance.

Frank

There are Caravan breakers around. They may have one that would fit.
Good luck

There are companies that will make you a brand new window using the old one as a template.
eeco-ltd.co.uk/ here's one.
