I would suggest creating an ad in the parts section. And for rare parts I have known people to search for years and finallly get one.

If there is a matching window on the opposite side that is still intact, look at it carefully and in one corner (probably a bottom corner) there should be manufacturer's information etched into the glass.

If you're looking for an exact replacement, you'll need this manufacturer's information, the dimensions, whether it's contoured (curved) or non-contoured (flat), and the color and degree of tint (such as the 90% gray tint used on Airstream Interstate rear windows, or the 30% blue tint used at the top of some older windshields).

There are companies out there that cut and install custom RV glass who could make a window to fit, if you're not concerned about having 100% OEM. Google "custom rv windows" and start checking around.

I'll post a pic later today. Today I'm going to replace both front calipers and brakes, turn rotors and replace front shocks. Anyone know which shocks are best for my 28ft Excella. Also I've replaced rear airbags but it seems like the rear of the Rv is still low. I'm afraid to tow anything like a car. Anyone have this issue. Also I can seem to find any rear shocks???

I use Bilsteins from this outfit. Bilstein - KYB - Rancho - Monroe - Edelbrock Automotive Truck Shocks and Struts - Shockwarehouse.com


About the rear end ride height there is a leveling valve, may be two of them depending on the year of your coach. It will look something like this.
About It is adjusted to set the correct ride height.

There is a height adjustment for those air bags.

The following motorhome windows are the only ones that can still be purchased.

Rear opening window
Rear wrap windows (40" wide)
Entrance door fixed window
Driver(pilot) and passenger(co-pilot) sliding windows
Both windshields

All others have been obsolete for several years.

Search for used, or replace them the best you can with Lexan.

Andy

Wrecking yards will have glass for units as they become available.

New glass would only be available through AS dealership network for dealers that stock that item.

If the non-moving glass you seek is flat many glass shops can have the correct thickness and type cut to fit.

You do not list your location in your profile.

I like Austin and dumb phones.

I do not have a smart phone and I do not have apps. However I understand there may be an app for this site. Just do not ask me anything thing about that.

As far as glass is concerned, Colaws in MO has lots of inventory. And if the glass you seek is flat, well my friend the job at hand is quite EZ.

Take a peek in the parts section of the classifieds. Someone was parting out an Airstream and might have that window for you! Here is the link (for sale parting out an entire airstream inside and out).

I asked for a couple of parts myself but not the windows!
