Default Need a custom van window supplier

Hi All,
I'm looking for a supplier for a custom van window. I've found on-line a couple of suppliers for standard sized van windows but only one for custom sizes.
It's Motion Window out of Vancouver Washington.
http://www.motionwindows.com/

Does anyone have any experience with this company and/or knows of any others?
Thanks,
WVvan

Here's one. http://www.v-sales.com/ . I've used them for a few things and been satisfied.

They're pretty hard to dig out, but there are some out there, so don't give up.

markopolo suggested a windows (and more) place in this other thread about windows on this forum.

Scroll through it a bit and you'll find the links embedded.
Not sure where they're located. They might be online orders only.

Good luck.

I'm not sure, but we visited the Roadtrek factory in August, and they can't even find a good supplier. The one they used to have was CR Lawrence Automotive products. We have those windows on our Roadtrek, and they are wonderful. I found out that Lawrence went out of business during the bad econimic times. We were at the Fergus Canada rally last month that Roadtrek had, and one couple was complaining about how bad their windows were, and when comparing theirs to ours we noted that while they looked similar to ours, when opened so you could see the hardware they were very cheap. I asked Roadtrek while visiting the factory about this issue, because I wanted to know if Lawrence had cheapened their windows, or RT had started buying from a cheaper supplier. They informed me that with Lawrence out of business that they had to find another supplier. All I can say is that the supplier they now have is terrible. RT contends that they can not at this time find a better supplier. All I know is that when we compared the hardware that sissors the windows out, on the new ones vs. my 2006 windows, there was no comparrison. The new ones are absolute junk, and if I were Roadtrek I would not want them on my product. That being said, I guess if RT is telling me the truth, then they have to have a supplier to keep RT in business, and it sounds like they are just getting the best they can for now. So, it makes me wonder if there is a shortage of good window suppliers out there, or RT just can't find one that meets their criteria. Good luck on your search.

Don't know if this will help but you might want to look at Kinro Windows. I see where they handle windows for RV's, Vans, along with doors. I really don't know anything about them - I was doing some research on home windows and came upon it. Ron

Dometic bought Seitz and has a selection of windows available. I think they are double-paned, which is great for noise and insulation.

There is a place in New Jersey that carries and installs...call Motion Windows for installers located in the USA...I think I was told they have a list of about eight places that installs motion windows.

I installed Motion Windows 3 years ago. Very high quality and the company is a pleasure to work with.
