how are these available for an aerostar, but not e-series??

been searching for some little trapezoid windows and stumbled onto these.

http://www.dkhardware.com/product-20984 ... 0-1-8.html



not for everyone im sure, but personally id rather have a mini slider than a popout. especially on the barn doors. definitely a security issue, but no more than a popout. just seems crazy these are available for an aerostar van, but not an e-series.

Yeah, that's crazy. Replacement screened windows for E-series vans is one of those great ideas that probably wouldn't pop now that they aren't being made anymore. It's unfortunate all around.

And what are there, like 6 running Aerostars in the whole country nowadays?

Re: how are these available for an aerostar, but not e-serie

just surprises me they were never offered for e-series, especially when the bodystyle had such a long lifespan. aerostars were around what, 10 years?

and no doubt on the aerostars. i seriously cant remember the last time i saw one of those moving under its own power.

Me neither, and then this pops up on CL today! I've never even seen one of these converted to a camper. It might just work for me............if I was blind.

For what it is, and if it's OK mechanically, that's a steal.

That's what I get for only looking at pics. Good thing I'm not a buyer...

ive seen that exact setup at a local pick and pull. was curious who the manf was.

sure are uggo though. agree if you can get over the looks, awd 4.0 would probably be a decent setup.
