2003 Airstream Cracked Windshield

Oh Boy.... where do I begin. The driver side front windshield has a BIG crack. Any source I can search? I am in Ontario Canada. Any ideas, companies, Internet links ...anything to point me in the right direction.
Thanks, TOM&JUDY....One heck of a big Mosquitoe time of year.

Go to any good glass shop. These are available usually within a couple days shipping. My Clipper w/s was available overnight from Vancouver.

Thanks Dave That is a start. It was also suggested in IRV2 to have the crack repaired. Going to try this first. Still I don't want to take a chance and will try and get it replaced.There is a good independent family owned business that I have delt with. He is very resouceful.
Thanks
TOM

One "rule of thumb" I heard was that if the crack is smaller than a dollar bill, it can possibly be repaired by epoxy injection. I've had a number of small "star" cracks repaired with good results. I paid for two out of my pocket and the third, when I checked, was covered by my insurance with no deductable.

Cracked windshield

The comprehensive part of your RV insurance policy provides for glass repair or replacement. The best part of that is that most RV glass is so specialized that your RV insurance company will have contacts that are mobile.
Instead of chasing around to find a place to fix it,, they'll send the right guy to you.
In our 23 years of class A ownwership, we've had to do it twice, they came to us.
