Changed out the door glass to smoked clear that we can see through, matches all other glass in the RV. Ordered the tempered from a local glass shop, $32.00, small price for safety.

Mine is plain glass too. Glass shop suggested tempered but said it would be a week+ and I had it apart already!

So regular glass and will see if something happens.

Update

Bought a pull down shade cut to width at Lowe's for $8 just for the rod and mechanism. Played around with the placement of the brackets, cut our fabric to width and attached it to the rod. Need to make another valance a little taller and deeper to accommodate the thicker fabric we are using for the shade. So far, so good!
Tomorrow, I will remake the valance , finish the fabric adding a fold-over loop for the bottom stiffener/pull down. Then it's just covering the valance in the faux-leather and mounting with small "L" brackets.
Will see if Bob find's a clear window replacement at Quartzsite, otherwise, I'll order one online, as I want the smoked tempered glass like the existing windows.

Hey Bob, I recall when at Quartzsite last year that a big Class A near us had a crew come out and replace their windshield. Must be a glass shop either at tent or in town.

I called a local glass shop here in north LA and they would need a pattern. Will be $45 for the glass and $45 for the curved corners tempered. Hope Bob comes up with something at the Big Tent.

FYI -- While the corners of the frame are curved, the pane isn't. It's square cornered and sits on tabs molded into the frame.
