The new guy

Hi everyone just popping in to introduce myself my name Butch I just purchased my first travel trailer. I took out Saturday this past weekend and had a blast ....I did have one problem a costly rookie mistake I'm sure. While closing my awning I had a window cranked open and well whoops there's my first break. I am handy with the tools though but not sure of a good place to pic up a new window hopefully maybe some new friends on the forums can help. Thanks in advanced looking forward to hearing back.

Hi and welcome to the forums
Hopefully you'll have the window repaired by time of your next trip. Doesn't your insurance cover it. If its a new trailer I think it might be under warranty?

Unfortunately I have a 2006 not new but I will check with my insurance . My deductible is 500 so I'm thinking I will have eat the cost on this one.

We love it and it has a lot of what we wanted in a light weight travel trailer, one of the benefits of this is its under 25' in total length and it gets us into almost any campground.
It took us a year and half to find one, we've done a lot of research, searching around and we owe a lot of thanks to this forum and its members who posted information.
We bought the trailer in 2012, we like to keep it new and still smells new

Nice! It took us a year to find ours we looked at brand new although very nice I wasn't big on the long financing . We stumbled across ours driving by a lil used car dealer ship the said it was his neighbors and it was in excellent condition. And a three year loan was perfect for me.

You can likely find a window or parts at most any RV dealership that has a decent parts department.

Or, you might try contacting the camper manufacturer to get ahold of their parts person. Won't be your cheapest route, but it'll get what you need.

No, but it doesn't mean much from me - I don't know a whole lot about parts. Maybe someone else will chime in.

But basically- as long as you check a few online reviews, I'd bet you're safe to order.
