Question Looking For Big Picture Window Source

I've been searching for big picture windows that don't open and don't have a screen for my bus, but I'm having trouble finding them. I'm looking for something around the size of 3 feet by 5 feet. Does anyone know of a good source for something like this?

That is pretty large. I have 24 x 48 and in a couple locations I had to cut two ribs. I welded frames from square tubing then welded to the ribs I cut.

I'm going to a bus rally next week that is for wandering around the rv surplus places. I can keep on the look out for something, shipping would be a bear. Depending on your location in PA might be cheaper to drive here.

Just order up whatever you need. There are several companies that will build them to whatever specs you need.

Just curious about why you want a 36 x 60 window that don't open and isn't tinted? Whenever that side is facing the sun it's going to be like a greenhouse....HOT. Also with something that big you are cutting down on precious wall space that could be used for counters/overhead storage.

Thanks, Somewhere. Sometimes I wish I woulda rushed the build just to get on the road and check-out some of these events....Sure motivates me to work on the beast. Get 'er done.

If you don't mind used find a salvage yard that has airport shuttle buses. Those windows are huge.
