…. Of course you have proper insurance… but what happens if the windshield isn’t available ?

If you look through either the FMCA magazine or Motorhome magazine you will find a company that will bend glass for just about anything.
I may not be cheap.

People in Cuba have not been able to buy parts for cars. I have heard some of them modify the car to fit windshield they have.
To bad nobody in this country could do that

Ultimately, yes, they might total the rig over a windshield.

If you have a 40yr old rig, this is actually pretty likely. Market value of the rig might only be $5k and not many kicking around, so if a custom windshield would run $10k, odds are they cut you a check for $5k and call it good.

If you have a 2yr old $500k rig, even if it's going to be $20k to get a custom windshield produced, it makes financial sense...of course, they might drop you shortly after.

Some manufacturers used commonly available parts including windshields. They just may not want to tell you that. Check for a forum for that model and you might find it uses a GM or other windshield.

Wait What? If I had a functional MH that I had cared for, but could not replace the glass I would think I had to.
Of course I have put enough miles on more than a few vehicles to understand that windshields wear out.

If you are in Florida then: but this does not help you find one. Get the number off the lower left corner and they will help you find who made it and the numbers that you will need.

in Florida, all drivers who have Comprehensive Coverage are not responsible to pay any deductible in order to pay for services to repair damages to their vehicle's windshield.Nov 18, 2021

Thank God we bought a quality motor home that is still supported after 22 years.. NEWMAR.

we replaced the windshields 3 years ago, there is a number in of the glass that will tell you which glass to order.. Your Glass dealer will know where to get the glass.
