Houston area fogged window repair?

I ran across a post from early 2020 with a reference to Quick Fix Headliners & Glass/(281) 579-3132 for fogged window repair but I just called them and they want $800 to repair. $1500 if the glass is too etched (which I think it may be) and they have to have some new glass cut. This is the non-movable side of a horizontal sliding window. Rough dimensions are 28x30 so it's not some huge pane of glass.

$800 seems much higher than the typical repair pricing I've seen people post up and I can have a complete new window made from https://www.motionwindows.com/ for about $650 but it's 12 weeks out so I'm looking for other recommendations.

All I know about is RV Fog DR in Arkansas or Sun Coast designs in Floridia. 2 years ago it was about $500 per window to remove and repair at Sun Coast. They have a campground with water and 50 amp for free while there for repairs.

I had the same problem on my Bounder Classic 34B. I ordered new windows from Fleetwood and received them in about 10 days with freight delivery to my house. I put them in myself with help from DW in an afternoon. We live out in Katy. No problems during the ensuing year. My fogging happened immediately after a pressure roof leak test at Camping World.

I am doing my own right now. I'm pretty close to Houston. I had a glass place tell me 175 for a new glass if I pulled the glass (driver side) and I said do it. He called back and they could not do the light green tint. I went ahead and split them and ordered the spacer from amazon.
Pulling the window is not terribly hard and there are plenty of video's online. It was streaked inside, and my wife put paper towels on them and soaked with vinegar for about an hour. They came out spotless.

Iím about to give it a shot myself. Going to call tomorrow about custom cutting tempered glass to match since one window is really bad.

Did you somehow measure the spacer thickness before ordering or just roll the dice and pick a ďcommonĒ size?

Mine was 2 pieces of 1/8 glass with 3/16x3/16 spacer. I put the spacer 5/16 in from the edge and filled with sealer. I had to buy 66 ft of the spacer, but it was around 60 dollars. If yours happens to be the same spacer, I'll give you enough for yours.

Mine has curves and such being a driver side glass. The glass place that was going to get it, did a trace on a piece of large paper to send in to the houston place he gets them from. He said there are 4 or 5 places that cut and temper the glass. If you have a tint, matching that is the main challenge. A glass place can glance at it and tell you what it is. If you try the vinegar, you might be surprised.

This guy explained it well.
