Don't know if you ever figured out the cause. We had a micro bust come through once and it picked up small rocks from the building roofs and peppered car windows shattering them. No rocks left in the end visible but it was obvious because only 1 side of the cars were hit. That or a gravel road could get enough smaller rocks to do it. Don't exclude hail as it would do the same and melts. Smaller hail blown sideways could break a window but not dent the roof.

Glad it all worked out and thanks for the update!

Maybe it is me making a connection where there is none.. But I seem to read quite a bit of people having frameless windows just burst for no reason. A lot seem to be while they are just driving down the road with no apparent cause.

Ours is frameless type, tilts out from the bottom, looks like OP's window.
My husband wanted sliding windows, he was disappointed ours came with these new ones. Seems to me you could get more airflow with sliding.

And it's totally broken up, if a rock hit it, it was really a big rock. Film on it would have kept a lot more of it intact.

The biggest problem is we now live in this and don't have *plans* for staying anywhere for a month till November or returning to a certain area in a few weeks.

We are on our way to Boise for 10 days and we'll go straight to an auto glass place. At least the roof isn't leaking again.....yet...........

Mine had kinda of the same window tilts out at the bottom , thats what broke on mine, i was just washing the trailer, it was warm out and cold water hit it, that was it, just shattered. Thats a easy one to replace took about an hour at a auto glass shop, they did put the film on the inside, a little different, but not much. Cost like 45.00 bucks. Dealer wanted 350.00 to replace. I taped a piece of metal up until i got it in. Atleast it kept the weather out, they cant cut tempered glass, so they used single pane and the film which is legal. If i wanted it tempered they had to send it out after being cut, he said 2 week turn around. So i opt. For the film.

That's Very good news. I mean not your shattered glass, but only $45.

We're going to Boise for 10 days tomorrow so we'll stop at an auto glass place ASAP.
We have a white plastic trash kitchen trash bag very well taped up with packing tape. Duct tape can leave so much glue residue and looks too ghetto. This only looks a little ghetto. Actually, I can't believe how well it has held up so far. It was really cold last night, hope it doesn't rain. Our ladder isn't tall enough to really tape up the top.

Mine was a rear window, about 6" x 24", it took them longer to take the tilt out frame out then to cut and install the new pane and film

Mine ended up costing me nothing more than my $100 deductible and that included the temporary fix as well as the entire new window. And because it was a comprehensive claim it doesnít ding my insurance. Best part of all was I didnít have to do any of the work. Installer even cleaned up all the broken glass!

We did get our broken window replaced earlier this month but it wasn’t that inexpensive. A mobil glass man came to our motor home, measured and said by law the glass must be tempered. This was in Idaho.
A week later, he replaced it, did a good job EXCEPT it’s too narrow compared to other windows. It just barely covers the seal, I can’t get it to leak with a water hose. He told my husband that’s how he was taught to do it. It was 18”L supposed to be 24”W. $222. You probably wouldn’t notice just walking by but it’s annoying.
