Could someone measure a windshield for me?

So I have a cracked windshield and when I called the glass company they wanted me to measure the windshield before they order it. I have a 2014 390RB but I'm really nervous about this and I thought maybe if someone else measured it and we both got the same measurements I would feel better. They told me to measure the width and heighth of the windshield from dead center of the window. So, can anyone help me out? I would be very grateful. Thanks.

When I had my 2008 Berkshire windshield replaced I was asked for the number that was etched in the lower left corner of the glass. That is apparently the part number and should be all that is needed. I would be leery of a shop that does not know this and ask you to measure the windshield. These windshields are not easy to put in. If put in wrong they can crack just by using your leveling jacks.

Had ours replaced, the number on the glass is all they should need.

Uhh, what a new windshield cost? I've got a huge starburst crack that I had repaired but it's only a matter of time before it expands. I thought someone shot me when whatever it was hit our windshield.

Hope I'm wrong for your sake, but I've heard around $4000.

Boowho??

They told me $2500 but my deductible on my insurance is $1000 so that's how much I have to pay out of pocket. I will look for the part number and call the glass company back. Thanks folks for all the help. Again. This place continues to amaze me.

That's why I'm glad my 08 Berkshire has the two piece windshield... Still not cheap BUT not $4K either.....

I had my windshield replace by rv glass solutions in June. It cost $3800 plus my $100 deductible.

The numbers on the windshield was all that was needed for them to order it.
