Just curious if its possible to find or have made replacement windshields for now defunct RV manufacters - is this something to worry about when buys a used rig?

Drop In, Get the year make and model of the coach and call a glass company that does RVs. You will find that these companies have the resources to obtain the glass you need unless its an antique and then they still might have it.

As with many other parts, RV windshields are not unique to RVs - they are all "borrowed" from some other vehicle and thus remain available even if the RV no longer is. Same applies to headlights & tail light assemblies.

Our Coach is an orphan. The glass manufacturer is labeled on the windshields. Brand (Guardian) and part numbers. I was able to get a quote here.
As with most of the parts National didn't manufacture the windshields. If the coach is an orphan then a little more research is needed but almost all the parts can be found. Things like Bay Doors, Structure that isn't the chassis, are made buy the coach manufacturer and unless you can find them surplus they need to be custom made.
I haven't needed any of those items and haven't had a problem finding the parts I have needed.

Another NRV Owner

We own a 2000 NRV Surfside 31' Class A Just had our drivers side windshield replaced after hitting a pothole. Took it into our local RV repair shop & they had no problem locating the correct glass (Including the sun block band) matches the passenger side perfectly ..... Cost was less than we expected, but still not cheap. When it comes to the windshield, I suggest that you let the pro's install it.
Enjoy the Roads ...
