    Had a call from the Mother-in-Law.
    Her washroom window has delaminated and disappeared, leaving just the inner pane remaining.

    Does anyone know the manufacturer of the windows fitted to a 2006 Lunar (Homecar) Premier H622?[​IMG]

    They look the same design as the ones fitted to other Lunar products, including caravans.

    Anyone have any ideas?

    Every man and his dog stocks Seitz windows Bill.
    These aren't Seitz. I will have to book a day off and go and have a look at the van.
    Hopefully, there will be some kind of manufacturers mark on them.

    The M-in-Law has a warranty on the van.
    She'll be calling Lowdham today.

    I wonder if they will dispute the claim by saying she must have left it open?

    I have just found out that Poly Plastic is the make Terry. They are a Dutch firm.
    I have found them on the net, but the style is not the same as fitted to the MH.

    Windows are not covered by the warranty!

    My M-in-L is going to her local Lunar dealer to see if a replacement can be had.
    John Wicks caravans think it won't be too much of a problem.

    Let's hope they perform better than the average leisure vehicle dealer!

    Got one!

    Found one on the website of SFM Caravans.
    They stock a large selection of used parts and had exactly the right one in stock. :)

    We had a recall on our Burstner for this, at about 5 years old, I think they were Dutch and the solution drill and fix 4 screws to each window FOC.

    You must have a case against someone.

    Thanks Brian.

    I found the recall, it is only for Burstner despite the fact failures have occurred on many makes.
    I came across a website where someone had been campaigning on this issue.
    There are no recalls from the other manufacturers who use these windows. Usual form for the industry I suppose, we have learned not to expect much from them in the way of after sales service.

    Glad we have Seitz in ours!

    The cure is no more than 4 screws and neat plastic nuts per window. All you need really is some M4 pan head screws and locknuts in stainless to fix the rest.

    Just got an email from SFM. They are refunding my card because they have screwed up and their website doesn't actually reflect what they have in stock!:swear2:
    Might have found another at less than half the cost though......
