One of those massive Orkney winds caught the rear door of our Adria Twin and blew it against the side of the van, smashing the window.

I’m sure I rear on here about a way of stopping the doors making contact with the van, but I can’t find it. Something like replacing the rubber bumper that’s there and is small and useless maybe?

Ouch! Hope you can get the window replaced easily. Our van has one of these fitted: -
Make sure you match up the two parts exactly. Whoever fitted ours didn't and so we have to be extra careful when using it but, once in place, it's fine.

Sorry to hear that & hope you get it sorted without too much hassle. I also remember reading that someone was considering options for an extra stop. Know that we will be looking to add something now too - our Citroen does have a restrainer but could be overcome by strong winds.

Adding this from @pops -

Found it, on the Autotrail V-line owners group
He used 20mm outside diameter rubber pipe cut to a length of 42mm and filled it with silicon and left it for a week to hardened.
He then pushed on a 19/20mm black ferrules for table and chairs legs end caps stoppers, and then pushed into bumpstop.
Hope this helps.
