    Complements of some low-life scroat - I'm now trying to source a side window for Heidi :frowny:
    I'm totally wassed off - the insurance company has been as much use as a chocolate fireguard / the Police don't want to know / none of the neighbours saw or heard anything.
    And the most infuriating things - the security cameras didn't catch anything and the alarm didn't go off. Throw my hands up in despair :swear:

    Ooh... That's a bummer.
    Low life parasites that did that.
    Hopefully you'll get sorted soon.
    Didn't give your post a "like".... not appropriate.

    Would you believe parked up on our drive - but that side of the van is next to a cut-through ginnel.
    They put the window through but didn't try to thieve anything - just mindless vandalism. A neighbour had her windscreen done at the same time, but windscreens are far easier to replace!

    There is always some dick head willing to do this damage. Why? What enjoyment do they get from this?

    I am pretty sure that Autoglaze.co.uk should be able to help you. They sourced a new windscreen for my 564 within 24 hours and when they came to fit it they had a Hymer side window in the van to fit the same day.

    Contact your local plant company, as they get a lot of JCB's and the like having windows smashed !! they usually know whom to contact.
    My mate had it happen to his Hymer as quoted £300+ to get a replacement, local guy cut it to size and fitted it for £155 !! toughened glass too !!

    Losing the will to live :frowny:
    Latest update 4 days later -
    Very friendly lady on phone said they would check their stock and email me back.
    My insurance company specifies National Windscreens, and to give Gary at their Bury branch his due he contacted both TravelWorld and Lowdhams. TravelWorld couldn't recognise my van even with the registration number, the chassis number and the Hymer serial number. Lowdhams used the Hymer serial number and emailed Hymer Germany but were told that this glass is no longer available.
    I've also emailed Brownhills but they had the same answer - no longer available.
    I'm still waiting for an answer to my email but they are based in Dorset and I'm in Lancashire.
    Just hope the friendly lady at the friendly hippo has good news for me :tmi:

    I would go for the plant replacement window, where I used to work the window guy was there regularly making and fitting to suit the various diggers and heavy plant . I bet the git who did this has issues with life the world and everything.
