Super nice. I may try to do that. I replaced a door window once in a Travel Trailer - I don't remember if the corners are rounded or square. But I think they were square.

How dark is the tint on that glass? Does it match the other RV windows?

What was the cost for the glass.

The glass was rectangle with square corners costing $48 for tempered and grey. Matches the rest of the windows. Not as dark as the frameless windows now in use. You can see in any of the windows and the door.
I just picked up some 1/8"x 1" grey butyl tape from CW and will remove the window and re-do the tape as it was too thin and looks like it will leak at the corners.
I will attach photos as I re-do the tape.

Could you double up on the thickness?

Thanks Bob, no need to double up. Single layer of the 1/8" butyl did the trick. Oozing out and will remove it tomorrow. It's a job to remove the frame and glass once set in, not to mention removing the adhesive. I don't think the glass dealer gave me butyl tape, moire like 3M VHB tape.

Happy wife, Happy life!

The DW is very happy about the entry door clear glass. She commented on it two or three times on the Quartzsite trip.
I haven't heard anything from Bob C about his search for stained glass, guess no luck.

On our drive home with our new 2250 Sunseeker, I noted that I couldn't see out that window as it was frosted glass. On our '00 Four Winds, that spot had the barrel chair and a narrow window in the wall. This was perfect when pulling out from a side road/driveway if the road/street was angled where I couldn't see via the passenger window.

We purchased a replacement glass from our dealer in Tualatin, (Oregon) for just under $20. It took a couple shipments as they kept sending frosted glass even though we ordered clear.

I always paint the plastic to give it a UV blocker, and as the current frame is black, it'll soon be white. We purchased a pack of nice pillow cases that are a good match for the interior; we'll use one to make our night blind. The second? It'll probably appear on a pillow somewhere... perhaps in the overhead bunk.

Stained glass?

For those interested in stained glass entry door windows, The couple next to me have one installed. Anyone want me to find out where they got it?
