Be as it may, the only classic motor home windows available from a dealer that knows how, are the windshields, the rear window, the rear wrap windows, and the sliding pilot and copilot windows.

All the gaskets including the windshield gasket and gasket lock, are available.

Measurements are not needed for the windshields. However, the exact year and model of the motorhome must be given.

The very best material to use to replace the windows that are not available, is Lexan, with the scratch resistant finish on both sides, which is called abrashion resistance. You can rub that type of coated Lexan with steel wool and not scratch it.

That plastic material can be bent in a brake, 180 degrees without cracking or breaking. Hitting it very hard with a hammer, will not break it. The thickness used is 1/8 inch. The sun has zero effect on Lexan. Punching it with a hand, will hurt the hand, but not the material.

The thickness used is 1/8 inch. The sun has zero effect on Lexan.
