Replace glass in door.

My DW and I are thinking that we would like to replace the frosted glass that is in the door with a clear piece. We would like the view since the 2 other windows on that wall don't really show anything when we are up and walking around or sitting on the sofa. We have a Rockwood 2306. We have a plan for blocking the window if we want privacy so that is not a problem. Anyone else do this or are thinking about this? Are there clear pieces available that are exact fit?

Don't know, but why not a pc of 1/4" Lexan? Just remove the glass, use it as a template and cut the Lexan to fit.

I had thought of that but plastic, when it gets scratched, drives me crazy. And it will get scratched, or marked up from road crap and people washing it without knowing what they are doing. Although replacing it once a year or two is still probably less that a proper piece of tempered glass.

I'll have to fire up the "Google".

Thanks!

Might look in glass that put in fireplaces. Put one in a stove once about $30. We wiped it clean to watch the fire. Bought at local glass store in Arkansas. They ordered or cut on site. Took about 2 or 3 days to get. Just a thought.

Thanks. I said tempered but probably the wrong word. I would want the type of glass that's in there now but just clear. Maybe shatterproof is the proper description.

I would check with a auto glass company like Speedy auto glass or Apple auto glass I would say they could replace the window for under $100.00 installed. Good luck

I think you meant "tempered". Be careful about about plate thickness because it sandwiches between front and rear frames and must be correct to be watertight. I found stained glass, etched, monogrammed etc on line. Been quite awhile but can be located "Rv door glass" or similar. It's a standard rect/ oval and lots of companies offer them.

Thanks, good info. I thought it was tempered but when I got the response about a fireplace glass I had my doubts I used the correct word. Thanks again.
