    If it proves impossible to source a standard replacement window, is there any way of repairing or making a replacement?
    Thanks.

    Contact these people, they will make any plastic window as long as you have the original to take a pattern from. I found them cheaper than replacement originals and just as good.

    if the code and sizes are on the window, they dont usually need to even see the old one to make a replacement acrylic window. if you must send the old one to them just fix a piece of plywood over the hole with a batten or 2 across the inside to keep it secure and weather tight

    Thank you both for your answers. Might be worth the drive to Bournemouth to see the van. :)

    I am just up the road if you need somebody to look for you

    if this is a new to you van, get the cost of the replacement knocked off the price

    They made a caravan door opening window for us a few years ago. Very helpful people, and £££££ cheaper then buying one from the agents. (y)(y)(y)(y)
