1968 Tradedwind Fixed Window Exploded

I hope you guys can help. I came home to find one of our fixed windows was shattered. It is the small fixed window below the window that is opposite the door.
Where can I find a replacement or do I get a 1/8 tempered cut to replace.

Any information is helpful. I have tried Vintage Trailer Supply but did not see a fixed window replacement.

Thank you,

Gary

Gary.

You can easily replace that fixed window with Lexan.

Home Depot should have it.

Lexan is some what bullet proof, and is cheaper than that glass.

On our Land Yacht, we need to replace the road-side vista-view window as part of a major repair/restoration - the trailer got raked by something large that left a gouge and tear across half the length of that side. I went to a local auto glass shop and they quoted me less than $100 CDN for the 8 1/4 x 19" glass in 5mm tempered... I'll get it in a couple of weeks. The aluminum frame is repairable, but I'll also have to get a new piece of Lexan to replace the interior plastic pane, which was also punctured.

What did you use for window holder or glazing. I'm thinking of using a liquid and I want to make sure that's compatible.
