cracked windshield

My 2008 Berkshire has a cracked windshield. Should it need replacement, what facility can handle this task? I am located in the Lehigh Valley area of PA.

My 2011 has the glued in type, be careful who does the installation.

I just had this done. 2 months ago, a couple teenagers threw a brick off on overpass at me and smashed the windshield - I was doing 65 on a freeway. A local auto glass repair company did the work - they do quit a few motorhome/tractor-trailer windshield repairs/replacements. - but the bulk of their business is cars. So just about any well-known windshield repair shop will work.

Mine is glued in with the rubber gasket around it. Took them 4 hours and 5 guys to replace and then it was required to sit and cure for another 48 hours.

It was almost $3,000. I had a $400 deductible. Insurance covered the rest.
