finding an OEM right side driver window is near impossible unless you get one from a euro spec bus.. the driver window is different from left to right. as the front sash needs to always be on the outside. otherwise you'll low a lot of water inside during rain

depends on the bus brand.. looks like it would work with bluebird.. window has to have the same type of track top and bottom for it to slide..

The one I was going to buy on eBay was 30in wide and 20 tall...
It was a driver
Drive through style ....
not sure about the sash though

I didnít know thatís what it was called either so thank you!
But yeah I didnít even think about that ... the way it laps.... slipped my mind...
Maybe any people with bluebirds could chime in on the sash? If so Iíll just be looking for something like that... also maybe could possibly epoxy a strip of weather seal where the glass could still move ??? Maybe

Another option would be to turn a regular window on it's side, keeping that bottom sash oriented to the outside.....I did have to epoxy all the track slots in the 'new' lower edge to keep out the water.

I might end up using a regular bus window like this for the co pilot seat...

The emergency window i did plan on putting hinges up but the sash is oriented for a passenger side window so water can shed off like a shingle ...
i was wanting to put it near my sink and stove on drivers side but the sash would be facing the rain ....
I could also put it upside down there the sash faces the right way but it would then fold down for emergency exit and instead of acting like an awning would be like a food truck .. with the emergency exit hinge carrying the weight...

So I could possibly use it like it should go but on the wrong side allowing water to enter right there ... right above the sink and hopefully it would just water the plants she wants right there ...
i could by something else...
I could put it upside down and figure out how to help take load off the hinges ...
