Apex frameless glass source

Does anyone have a source for frameless tinted safety glass that matches the Apex factory glass? I have a broken pane, and was advised by my local custom glass company that they could not get tinted glass as dark as what is on the camper (which I find very strange).

I have seen a number of posts from Apex owners that had broken glass and were able to have a local glass place cut a new pane to their template. Some even said they had the glass cut and done the very same day they ordered.

I think I have a couple options: 1) source the (untempered) tinted glass, get a pane myself, and take it to my local glass company to cut and temper it. 2) find a glass cutting place with online service and have them do the whole job.

Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated. Not sure if there is any standard tint numbers or values that I could reference, but that would certainly be great if possible (80% tint level or whatever). Then I could at least know what I'm searching for.

Contact APEX

Contact Ben Kruip at APEX, Customer Service Manager. bkruip@forestriverinc.com. Ben can tell you who manufactured the windows. I think it was Lippert, but I could be wrong. Lippert. https://www.easyrvwindows.com/

Thanks, all I can find are sources for the entire window assembly (all three windows in the frame). I contacted Lippert and they forwarded me to a sales place that just does the whole assemblies as well.

I ordered a pane of glass from an online company that does tinted tempered glass, so we'll see how that works out. Matching the tint seems like the toughest part. It was $120 including shipping. I'll update and provide information on the source depending on how it works out.
