Glue in or gasket? Split or one piece? I can help you, I owned a glass shop for 17 years, just sold it and retired.

Go to any auto glass shop, and they can order one.

Why pay retail when you can order direct?

Well I might as well try and help you, OP posted and never replied back. So, you can''t really repair a 4 ft crack and will need to replace it. Op wanted to do it himself but I can assure you that your one piece replacement is for a professional only. Do you have insurance or will this be out of pocket? Personally I carry a zero deductible on my glass and don't worry about a broken windshield.

That said, I don't think even Safelite (God I loath that company) does class A windshields anymore. There is a company, Coach glass, and if you call them they can find the right shop, that will be able to help you. Coach manufactures windshields and will help you through the process. You could potentially buy the glass direct and have someone else install. That windshield is probably $800 from them direct and 3 to 400 to install, best case scenario.

You're probably going to be out a grand then. I would still call coach glass and see who they recommend, DO NOT take the recommendation from your insurance company, who btw, you will be talking to Safelite auto glass when you file your claim. It's called the SGC network and they are a third party administrator for most insurance companies. Coach glass or even Duncan will know what glass shops are doing the most class A RV. This is a very heavy piece of glass. Inspect everything inside and out around your RV prior to having you glass replaced, and re-inspect upon completion.
