Looking for a quality source in the Sacramento area for driver side windshield replacement. Must have been hit by a meteorite as the object seemed to come from nowhere. Your comments will be appreciated. Maby it was a falling rock as I was in Yosemity Valley.

I can't help with a place in Sac, but you might contact Village RV in Roseville for a recommendation. They USED to handle Alpines.

Do a search as this has been discussed before on this forum. I would caution that you make it VERY plain that they should remove one window at a time if you have two windows. If you don't, you will most likely get cracks in the cap (speaking from experience).

Oh, and if they do it in your driveway, make sure they don't leave the side windows open because if it starts to blow, it may pop out one side (also speaking from experience).

Good luck!!

I highly recommend you call RV Glass Solutions at 888-777-6778. They distribute glass to most rv manufactures (including WRV). They offer a free service to set you up with a rv glass shop at your location that they have experience with.
I've has some experience with meteorites recenly also and they were a big help. If you plan to go to Eugene,Or anytime soon they can do it at the wharehouse othewise they will set you up with someone in the Sac area. Good luck

Diceman, I was told the same info about the Greyhound bus window. That is not correct. I have a 2005 and the window had to be special ordered.

I had heard the same thing. When I found out about the new one piece windshields, I asked Ron Doyle how they were made. He said that WRV made a new front cap with the recessed area for the windshield, completely fiberglassed, in the shape of the new windshield. That cap was then sent to a glass company in Europe and they used it to make their "mold?" for manufacturing. I asked if this would make a problem for owners to get a replacement. He said, that is how it has always been done and the glass distributors get their glass directly from the glass manufacture.
