    Hi any of you Rvers out there know how thick the glass is, thats used in a Rv, we have a back bedroom window to replace, (thanks to our local cherubs)it is shattered at the mo but still in one Piece held by the tint film, I have the RAC plant and machinery specialist on the case but the thickness is unknown to them< I don't want to remove the glass to find out that a replacement ain't going to be forth coming
    The little Darlings Bless em

    Not used em myself but I believe they're very good and very helpfull. Plus the fact, they are RVers themselves and specialise in RV glass. Just been a big article on them in ARVE.

    answer to ps = use em as levelling blocks!!!!!!!

    Sorry to hear that news Geo. Can't help with the glass, but it sounds as though Zaskar has got that sorted for you. Your other question is a different matter and I am sure that I can help with that issue :thumb: Not sure about the disposal, but the creation would seem simple enough to me :Rofl1::Rofl1:
    Good luck getting it sorted mate.....

    I was going to run out and check.............................Then I remembered that Rocky is not here any more :cry:
    If you have got a ste of calipers or a micrometer then can you not check the thickness of one of the other windows, say the drivers side window, as I think they are all the same thickness..... Remember that it will be an imperial size too.... I would guess that a suitable metric size could be fitted but the gasket will need to be doctored. Pity Linda is away as she would be able to help for sure mate.... Never here when she is needed eh? some excuse about needing a holiday :Rofl1::Rofl1:

    What a bummer, Geo. Suggest gooly removal as suitable reparation to local hooligans.

    You could maybe use a bit of perspex temporarily, to keep the weather out?

    You'd need to get advice from someone about whether that's an MOT failure, though. . .

    Thanks Keith for the suggestions, American glass is toughened and treated after cutting is done, no further cutting possible:cry: ( Say's RAC Specialist glass dept) but will e-mail him to get size and thickness:RollEyes: Rac are coming out Monday to measure up to see if UK 5mm laminated Glass can be used if so £75 all in fitted if not Rac will source a thinner glass for it, he suggest that Kelly's are using laminated as they offer a same day measure and fitting service they cant be using toughened, as the process takes a week or so after cutting, if so, there taking the proverbial at that price.
    Failing that I will blank it out and paint it, add a rear grill and sell it as a pusher:thumb:

    Geo,

    I 'm sure you won't have missed this but....


    Are you not covered under the glass replacement section on your insurance policy?

    I know we are covered for ALL glass on ours (with Budget). I specifically checked this when we renewed.

    Yooooooohooooooooo!

    Sorry to hear of your plight Geo.

    Nothing I can do to help from this end as shipping glass is dodgy to say the least.

    Speak to Chris - G2EWS, he has just had a window replaced by the RAC , I know 'cos they wrecked his window awning fitting it :RollEyes:
