I would get some pictures of it and call one of the parts guys at Out-of-Doors Mart. They have been known to carry some used ones that they can let you have for cheap and if no used ones they know which one goes on what year. Airstream has a few of them and you will want to make sure you get the right one. I know measuring from top to bottom is one measurement you going to need before ordering.

I know Out of Doors Mart, and Inland RV both carry separate sections. I take it in its breaking, it was sacrificed to save your window? FWIW, a new curved window costs more than an entire set of the guards.

Thanks, guys! The mishap actually happened in our driveway! Rob had and is doing everything one-handed and it got away from him. We actually got it pieced back together, two corners are cracked all the way through. What glue can we use to finish the repair? We would lov to fix rather than replace!

That plastic can be fused back together using a "plastic solvent".

I have no idea where you might find a small quantity.

Katie, You might try either a glass shop near you or a higher end auto body shop as a starting point.
