For that repair, considering age and budget, here's what I'd do: Open window so that the corner is exposed. clean and sand smooth. Tape around window jamb at break, forming a nice corner. Fill with epoxy. Sand smooth. If you can't color match epoxy, you can paint with a plastic-friendly paint.

In my case that glass was darkened - I removed all the broken glass and cut out some cardboard as temporary replacement. I went to glass shop but he had to place order with glass mfg to get proper tinting, shaping, tempered glass. Wasn't that expensive but it did take a week or so to get the issue resolved.

I use tinted Lexan to replace the translucent window in the door, have done it on every TT I've had. It's really stupid that the manufacturers put non see thru windows in the door. A clear window adds needed light, lets you can see whose knocking on your door and allows you to watch your dog to see where he's pooping when the weather is cold.
