If you are looking for replacement side glass for your AI or Sprinter read on as part of this mod.
Thought I would share some experience and provide a solution\resource.
My 2005 Airstream Interstate was burglarized while in a storage garage.
What happened was the burglars pried a small portion of my T-Vent window off on my sliding door to then force entry. Of course people told me afterwards that T-Vent windows in vans etc have been known for decades to be exploited. So despite liking the idea of having a vented window on the passenger side for cross air flow circulation I decided on a solid window replacement.
The window Airstream originally installed was by Creation Windows. Who is out of business. ParKin Accessories at one time had a few of the old Creation Windows but not anymore. However, ParKin does still have options for people yet today. parkin-acc.com I am sure they are nice folks but they are very expensive. A solid window from them for my AI was going to be $441 plus $40 shipping. After a couple phone calls to them regarding the color of the glass (because they said gray while I would describe mine as black, and I was worried about matching) I also got it out of them that ParKin was just a middleman. The window would come from C.R. Laurence. So I figured I could find it cheaper.
And I did using Amazon, and finding Showerdoordirect. They also have glass for the newer Sprinter years as well. Once you find one piece of glass on Amazon from them then you can find others. So if you want start with “FW605 sprinter” and it should get you very close.
So it cost me $185.00 plus $5.25 shipping. Same exact part FW605. The one I got from Amazon was actually described very poorly (6”x6”x6”) as also pointed out by Amazon reviewers but they said it fit and now I am saying it as well. And for the $5 shipping it arrived with no damage. This did not come with a seal/gasket not to be confused with a seal/sealant/compound. But also as indicated by a reviewer on Amazon the local glass place was able to get the seal/gasket and they also had a seal/sealant/compound. And now I am saying that as well. The seal/gasket kit cost $20. I had a professional glass guy swap in the window. And ultimately the color matches – just as dark as my other windows. I am very pleased with the part.
I am not sure how this link will work, but if you need glass for your Sprinter or AI do check out Showerdoordirect on Amazon. I know if I need any more I will be going back to them.
