Help installing concession window Sat, 03/23/13 12:58 PM (permalink)
So I have all the walls put up with plywood in my truck except the wall where the window will be my question is do I need to support where my window will be with metal tubing or can I just frame it out with wood? I will be picking up the window on Tuesday and cutting the hole on Wednesday and I'm new to this so if there's a thread somewhere that I haven't been able to find or a simple way to do this it would really help. If it matters its an 89 gmc Grumman 13 ft box

    If you have the time and money i would reinforce it. It will not hurt anything by reinforcing it.

      frame a stud on each side(rough opening)and the top above the window (header) and below (sill).You can use aluminum studs or 2 by wood.

        thanks I am gonna be doing the same thing shortly and was wondering if i could use wood. any economical ideas on getting around buying an expensive concession window? I mainly do music festivals so I'm not really too concerned with my set up lookin like the trucks on the food channel.

          I use a standard window I bought at Menard's and framed it in.It has many seasons on it and still running strong.think it cost like $90.00.
