Don't know about 'inexpensive' but you can call Duncan Systems, Inc. | America's #1 RV Specialist and get a quote on how much the glass is. That will give you a starting point.

Once you know a base price for a new one, then try some RV salvage places...

I went through my insurance and they had me call Duncan, within 4 days the windshield was at a glass company near were I was staying. They picked the glass company, saying they know the ones that are good and those that are not. I had $100 deductable on my insurance and paid the glass co. $45 to come to the CG to install it. They did a great job!

Windshield Repair and Auto Glass Replacement - Safelite AutoGlass
the technician that replaced my Mustang's windshield said Safelite does motorhomes too. He said "if it has a windshield we can replace it". So give them a try. They are everywhere now. You can get an "instant quote" online if you provide details. You have to specify "motor home" for make and model in the drop-down lists. then i guess they give you a call with the quote. Make sure you are sitting down , but if your glass is covered by insurance your agent would do this.

You should have insurance and it should cover some part if not all of the glass. Worst case is you will have to pay the deductable. I just had mine replaced and my deductable is $500 bones but I have a $50 deductable on glass.

Duncan changed my passenger side windshield at their shop in IN.
Cost was $0 deductible with a Florida Insurance policy.
