Whoever you call, be sitting down when you hear the price!

I would start with a call to the closest Newmar service shop or good RV repair shop. Regular auto glass shops may not have the expertise to handle a large job like that. I'd want someone with experience in replacing RV windshields to do the work.

You could contact AmyL@RVGLASS.com
She helped me with my insurance claim to get both of mine replaced. They are part of Duncan systems and coordinate installs across the US. Take a pic of the stamp on the corner of the windshield, near the center gasket.

I agree, make sure you are sitting down when you hear the cost especially if you are in Can. I don't remember the name of the place I got mine from but it was in Oregon and by the time I got it up here in Alberta it was around $3,000. for one side without install. Also make sure you know what tint you have at the top when you order. I didn't and wasn't near the rv to go check. I had a 50/50 chance and picked the wrong one.
I had a shop that does big rig windshields install mine and had no complaints.

Duncan Services was who Progressive pushed us to. They handled everything including finding an installer for us. I think the total bill (to Progressive) was about $1800 for the install alone.

Ditto on the Duncan recommendation. Also, be sure to check with your insurance to see if you're covered.
