National Dolphin LX Windshield

We are looking at a 2005 National Dolphin LX motor home. With these being no longer made are the windshields still available or do you have to look in junk yards? I checked the NADA book price for this unit being they are no longer made it seems kind of high priced.

I would think you should have no problem getting windshields. Ask your local glass shops.

We have a 2004 Dolphin and love it!! Very well made coach. I have had both the left and right windshield replaced with no issues.

Just had our 2008 National Pacifica windshield replaced yesterday, darn rocks. No issues getting glass, in fact the installer had to get 2 when the first one broke on his way to our location.

Thank you all for the response. We saw it listed but knowing they were not made any more I had concerns about finding windshield if I ever need one. We will go look and see what we think.

If you are unsure, contact RV Glass Solutions. They have a great deal of expertise in RV windshields and even side glass. Its been a few years, but they had the windshield for ours.

Keep in mind that starting in 2006 National started using a different, flatter windshield vs the curved one used in the 1994-2005 models. The change seems to have taken place mid year as I've seen 2006 models with both types.

Try this place. If it is a two piece window, it is around 1000 a side. If you take it to Elkhart. Local install would add around 500

I had drivers side replaced about 4 yrs ago no stock issues at that time but other issues with the manufacturer. You can PM me if you would like.
