Exclamation Glass Panel Replacement

Hello --

On my first outing of the season, I backed into a camping space in the rain, and a tree limb suddenly appeared out of nowhere and broke the decorative glass panel on the side of my 2021 Roadtrek Zion SRT. It is not a window because it is on the wall adjacent to my refrigerator. From what I can tell it is simply glued to the side of the truck for aesthetic reasons. There is no frame. Does anyone on the Forum know where I can source a replacement? Many thanks.

Why replace glass with glass? How about a high sheen finish on a purpose-built fiber-glass panel? Lighter weight and less "fragile."

Good luck.

Cheers - Jim

I hate when trees do that.

I think you will need an exact match for it to look right.
There are really only a couple of suppliers for that style of window. Here might be a good place to start:

It looks like it might be the factory side glass on the Promaster. Try Safelite or another automotive glass supplier.

IIRC the first thing they did to make the beltline look like all blacked out windows was to paint the area between the real windows gloss black. I always thought that was bit much to do for perceived value but hauling around heavy glass panels glued to the steel body is way beyond what I would call practical.

I suggest looking at this. Im not sure about the Zion but other makes/models use the full glass from the factory and cover up from the inside when behind fridge or bath.
