unanswered questions???

Our 1965 airstream was moved out of cover to make room. It had been parked out in the weather for 15days and I noticed a side window shattered-glass pieces on outside-no sign of vandalism, varmint,and it did not fall out from temperature change. Next day, small oval window by door was shattered in-no glass had fallen-glass in place just shattered. Two days later, back window glass shattered-pieces laying outside on ground. After close observation, one other window by the side front area has signs of "crystallizing" hard to see through.
Before I start purchasing replacement glass; I would like to solve the mystery.

It sounds like you have one of those two-legged varmits that gets a laugh out of costing you big $$; those windows are not cheap!

Now (::looks left then right:, you are in Texas, right? Good. Get out your rifle, a big huge kind of light, and a loud-hailer system. Park yourself in an appropriate hideout at the scene, and wait.

I think you can figure out what comes next.

If you want to be more merciful, change out the rifle for a high-end paintball gun. It also has the benefit of making it harder for your prey to quickly hide. Heeheehee...

Oh, and welcome to! I hope you solve that vermin problem quickly!

Sounds like a pellet pistol in the window trick.

I agree with Aage. I see no mystery. The evidence of vandalism to glass is nearly aways broken glass. You seem to have plenty of that.

I will be very amazed if the cause turns out to be something else.

I agree.

The windows lasted 47 years and now three just happened to break in less than a week? I don't think so.
