damaged rock/stone guard screen thing

I need to replace a plexiglass privacy screen (center) on the back of my 1992 excella 1000. can someone tell me where to go for such a thing? Ideally used, but at this point I don't have a choice.

the bottom of the frame is bent, and the Plexiglas is shattered. The aluminum struts and hinge are fine. I should be able to drill out the rivets and replace with a good frame/glass.

the tree I tapped is doing fine.

Anyone know where I can get a replacement? thanks in advance

That looks kinda Home Made... You may need to dust off aluminum riveting and plexiglass forming skills to repair that.. It doesn't look like anything Airstream ever shipped from the factory, but maybe someone else has seen something similar...

The picture is not that detailed, but it looks close enough to a normal center rock guard that's been whacked against something and bent/broken, and isn't flanked by the left and right curved guards. (maybe they've been swung out of the way, or just not installed on the rear? On the left side of the photo is something that looks like the attachment for one.)

That said, if you don't want to buy a new one, the center one is pretty straightforward I think. Flat rectangular piece of plexiglass in an aluminum frame.

I thought it looked like a front center rock guard shield over the window as well, but it is shown in photo as mounted on the rear of the trailer, and I don't think Airstream ever did that as a standard... A dealer might recognize it as a front center unit, and be able to order a replacement that you could mount yourself on the rear again...
