Default Rear window thickness

Hey Randy,
Can you tell me what the thickness is of the rear window in an FC? I am going to put a wind-out style window in there and have to get a sheet of aluminum the same shape and thickness as the rear window so I can reinstall it and use the rubber zipper to hold it in the opening. I was guessing .250 inches thick but it is just a SWAG and could be wrong. Thanks in advance.

I think 1/4'' or .250 is correct.

Actually it is a casement window. I am mounting it so it will open like a jalousie window though so rain cant' come in if it is open. It was a salesman's high end sample. This window even had a suitcase handle on it so he could carry it easily. Found it at the local Habitat for Humanity warehouse for $10. There isn't much ventilation in an FC in the rear bedroom. Will probably keep it closed when travelling to keep the dust down. The fridge in the hallway makes alot of heat that seems to get trapped in the bedroom.
