So it didn't look like it had a black eye!

Good luck with your search.
$2300.00 for a wrap window installed, is rather high.

The wrap window costs a little less than $ 900.00, and the rivets and sealer cost less than $75.00.

Labor at maximum, is 3 hours.

Freight is less than $75.00.

They just replaced the one window and wanted to balk at that! I paid ~$1200 to add the Rock guards. Here is a before and after pictures. We think it looks pretty good from the outside. A little darker on the inside but you can open them if you want.

I agree Andy, but we were new to Airstreams/ Argosys and didn't have any other options at the time. Now I would at least try another RV/Big Rig repair shop first.

I would like to caution eople that are quick to follow the advice to let their insurabce company pay for damage to their trailers, especially older ones. Check your policy first, and make sure the trailer isn't insured for actual cash value. If it is, you could get a very nasty surprise when an adjuster comes out to take a look at your broken window, totals the trailer, gives you a check for $500, and hauls it away.

Now that your no longer a "virgin", as a suggestion, if you wish to question prices, workmanship or the like, this Forums is the place to do it.

Many people will chime in to offer assistance.
