Lexan alternative?

I broke one of the front curved windows in my '73 trying to remove it and clean it up. I wound up using Lexan as a replacement for the glass. It's held up well for over 10 years now. It will need to be replaced at some point, but I'll just use Lexan again. My assumption is that you have the window glass frame and it's usable. Talk to a glass shop, they can give you a few tips. There are others here on the forums that have done this same type of repair.



Welcome to the forums and the Airstream madness.

I feel your pain brother. About the only place you can get the clear pano windows is from another Argosy. It is also why my trailer has shades to prevent that wayward rock.
If you want to forgo the clear windows, you can replace it with a tinted one they still make. I think they started putting them on Airstreams in the 80s. But then you will have a black eye unless you swap both sides.
I have also heard of people using acrylic or polycarbonate to replace the glass. Perhaps someone else on the forum has another idea.
