Furniture vs window

I bought a sleeper sofa that is an inch too big to put through the door. I can however get it through the passengers side window on my 2006 allegro open road. Has anyone ever removed and replaced a large window? Sure could use some help before I have a couch coming out of my wife's window as we drive down the street. Thanks.

Helped a friend take out the side window in his Camelot to take out the old refer and put in a new Samsung three door unit. Had to remove the window trim and then unscrew the frame. Window had rubber gaskets and now sealing take. Came out and went back in easily with two people.

I have a small RV repair shop near my home, and they are very experienced at removing side windows to install/remove interior components. An added benefit is that you get to see how well the window seal is performing and renew the sealant. It's the easiest way, unless you also need to replace windshield glass.

Does the sofa come apart? I had to disassemble a similar couch to replace it with recliners.

I removed the drivers side window myself to repair the sliding window which had fogged. I had no help and the window was pretty heavy trying to handle it myself on a ladder, I used bungies to hold it in place while I transitioned from inside to outside to take it out.

If you have help it shouldn't be a problem and probably the easiest way to get the couch in.

Taking mine out this spring by disassembling the couch before going out the door.

Taking a side window isn't much of an issue but have some help available, they can be heavy. I have also taken a sofa apart to remove from the RV. Disassembling and reassembling the sofa was much easier but both are very doable.
