Well, it's not glass but Amazon has a Camco 43554 stove cover for less than $50. Not as sexy but does the job. M

I love the idea of a wooden cover over the stove. To tell the truth, the glass cover is completely useless. You cannot use it for anything other than a pretty thing that requires constant cleaning. With a wooden/cutting board cover I can use that space for other things.

Our Stove came with the "Mickey Mouse" Tin cover! I gave it a Decent Burial at Rocky Fork Lake,Ohio,in a Dumpster! Replaced with a Wood cutting board,if our next stove has a glass cover and we go to RF Lake,I will use the Same Dumpster! Youroo!!

Last trip (Colorado Springs to Waco, TX and back) we hit quite a few rough roads - construction season in Colorado, and just rough as well as construction in Texas and New Mexico. In any case, 2 of 6 of the plastic bolts holding the glass covers sheared the heads off. The glass was loose and flopping around when we got home. Luckily, ours did not shatter like the OP's did.

I couldn't find any 5/16" (what the originals were) very short bolts or screws. So I got stainless steel bolts with thick rubber washers to put on either side of the glass for the back hinges. I also used lock nuts on the bolts, so I wouldn't tighten real hard.

The speed nuts holding the top plate down were also stripped, as were some of the self-tapping screws holding the stove together. Put in machine screws and speed nuts where lock nuts would not fit, and put the whole thing back together.

As I was doing so, I noticed the Suburban warnings on the glass about using the glass as a flare-up back stop when using the stove. The glass, when folded back (it's 2 hinged pieces), is supposed to protect the A-frame side and window behind it. Interesting design.

Also noticed that the little rubber bumpers that support the glass when covering the stove were mostly torn or missing, and the glass had actually been bouncing and rubbing on the sheet steel. I replaced all the rubber bumpers with clear raised stick-on bumpers, and added plenty of extras (used the entire sheet). I think those bumpers are critical to protecting both the glass and the plastic hinge bolts. I probably should have replaced the bumpers sooner.

We'll learn more next trip.

While I like the look of the wooden cover, please read how Mountain Girl shattered her glass cover. She didn't turn the knob all the way off. If she had placed a wooden cover over it the whole place would have gone up in flames. For her, wood is probably not the best choice.
