Having a window made is very expensive. If you Google Caravan Breakers you will get a number of hits. SFM are often recommended as they hold a wide range of used parts

Sikaflex 522 is the sealant you need, there is a company called ecco caravan windows in Halifax 01274 679524 , they will make it to size. not sure about your 3 pin plug maybe to bring power into your awning?

I would not be surprised if the window was commonly fitted to many vans. Therefore easily found. I would measure it accurately and search on that basis.

If you are resealing then you need to remove all the old sealant or the new one may not work.
I assume that if this is a standard three pin plug it has been fitted to power an awning heater or something by a previous owner. If you intend to use it I would have an electrician check it out as you never know if the original fitter was competent
SFM are a good source for windows and other second hand parts but if you google caravan breakers there are others. As jcloughie says the window should be common to other models probably most of the Swift range for that year and many other models from other makers. so if you have the measurements you should find one.

Would you use a sealant which may not be flexible enough for travelling or would use use mastic for fitting the window frame?
