Solid Windshield

We have noticed some older model motorhomes with one piece windshields. Does anyone know if you can replace a split windshield with a one piece windshield? We love our older model coach but dislike the split windshield since that is really the only thing that dates it.

Interesting question. I would think not, unless the same model coach when moving to a one price windshield simple removed the center divider. Then some surgery and body work would allow installation of the newer one piece windshield.

From a practical perspective, I don't see where the expense and effort would be justified. However I do appreciate the desire for updated appearance.

We ask when we was in quartzite a few years ago had 2001 country star the glass guy told us that they build a lot of extra bracing to support the one piece windshield to keep it from popping out.

I have a split windshield and no desire to go to one piece. I have had 3 broken windshields. Total cost about $850 each. Our glass guy told us that the total cost for a single piece windshield would be close to 3 times that. My deductible is only $150 no matter what the cost, but you now that extra cost ends up in your premium eventually. I don't mind the looks and It isn't an issue for vision. Honestly in a way I sort of prefer the more vintage split windshield look...but then again I like antique cars too!

I have to agree with Wobster regarding cost, but to each their own.

I agree with the cost also. I dread the day when I have to have mine replaced. I saw them do it on an RV show and it looked like more of a job then you would think.

It depends on who is doing the installation and the facility. I watched my one piece replaced at the Thor factory by two technicians in about two hours.
