It is new, made by Coach Glass. I read somewhere recently where Coach Glass makes new windshields, cockpit sliders and the rear pano windows. The side windows are not being reproduced.

No issues with the latch pins engaging but it is 50/50 whether the outer seal flips outside the glass or tucks back under and allows water ingress.
I think that's the reason why the old window Schlegel was glued in place. Being held in place by glue would keep it from getting tucked under. I can't think of any other reason why mine would have been so heavily glued, mainly on the outer walls of the track.

Other than better quality holes in the glass I couldn't tell a difference between the windows.

Wow! I'm real curious to know what he had to pay for the glass. Obviously InlandRV is not a cheap source......

Someone asked me whether or not the fuzzy Schlegel wraps all the way around the cockpit window. The answer is no. The forward sloped section does not have fuzzy Schlegel in it as shown below.
