What happened?! I know they are made by Guardian glass company. It is possible Forest River does have a few spare windows.

My 35 year old son put a huge firecraker inside a cast iron car to blow it up and a piece of the car hit the windshield, You would think as old as he is he know better!! I hope they still sell replacement windows for this unit

Sorry that happened. That is a crazy story but as a father of three young men it sounds about like something that would happen around here. Below is Susan Thornberg's email. She was in charge of Aviator warranty and maybe can help find a replacement. Let us know how it turns out. I've been wondering if windows were available.

Well they do sell replacement windows and are very proud of them!! They are 695.00 each and 100.00 to crate it up and 200.00 to ship! And then 550.00 to install at Camper Clinic 2 and none of this includes tax. I will pay my 250.00 deducible and let the insurance pay for it . No More FIRECRAKERS

I know a certain 35-year old who would be paying the $250 deductible if it were my TT.

I am glad to see replacement windows are available from FR. It was something I had wondered about and had envisioned you would have to pay Guardian Glass even more to custom make one. I hope it all goes well and gets installed ok. Someday it might make a good story to tell around the campfire!

I'm truly surprised FR still has any of the windows left over. Thought that was the reason for the 3 "mutt units" was to use up all the Aviator leftover parts.
