Camper window

Greeting all.
I'm hoping someone might be able to point me in the right directions.
Someone used my camper as target practice while it was in storage and shot the lower part of our back window. I called the local RV repair place and they told me they would have to replace the entire window, frame and all at a cost of $250+ shipping and labor.

I was hoping someone else might have had this issue and was able to just replace the lower part of the window that was broken.

Images attached.

Thanks
James

Might try e-bay. When I lost my bedroom escape window, found another one for $60.00 including shipping, vs, $250-$400 from other sources. Wayne

remove the lower window since it is the half that opens and bring it in to a glass shop and they will put in a new glass. just have to remove one clip for the crank rod at the window and one screw at the hinge and the window will side right off. a friend had a tree hit a window and did just this. fixed in an hour and very easy.

OMG it was so easy to take out. I just need to see if I can find a glass place that can cut and install a replacement before this weekend.

Thanks for the assist!
