It really depends on the type of window. Can tell use window type, possibly a picture. Is it a slider, emergency exit, door, fix panel, crankout. Single pane, or double.

What model camper

Changing out a window is usually just a matter of removing the screws around the perimeter of the frame on the inside, pulling off the inner section of frame, and then gently prying off the window itself. You should be able to do the removal all from the inside. Make sure to hang onto the window when you remove the last screw.

You'll need to replace the seal with either a new foam gasket, or (preferred) butyl tape, which is actually a type of non-hardening putty. Be sure the new window is centered before alternately tightening up the screws when re-installing.
