Road side front window-'76 Argosy

My family and I are driving across Canada with our 26 foot 1976 Argosy.
Right around Thunderbay our front curved roadside window took a rock from a passing transport. We are heading west to Vancouver Island. I've been trying to locate and coordinate one… Any suggestions?
Right now we are working with duct tape solutions.Click image for larger version

Call Inland RV "Andy will have one" They are very costly but better then no window.

If you do find a new Pano window, it will be dark tinted. You may find a used window in clear glass to match the remaining one. Because of this, the value of a used window is pretty close to that of new.

Agreed. I'm one rock too late.

I'll invest in rock guards in Calgary. I've been reading the rock guard forum and think I can put something together on the fly.
I've called inland RV $860 for a new one. The hard part is where to get the window sent so I can get it installed
Apparently inland gets them direct from airstream who were closed for inventory Friday.

I and hoping to find one in stock In western Canada

Thanks for your help everyone

Too bad about your accident.

This is a well know thread on the Forum. Good alternative idea here:

Check my post # 25 to the thread to see the range of pricing for the regular more costly kind.
