1973 Winnebago Brave Windshield

Ok I just bought a 1973 Winnebago Brave D20, the windshield is clouding around the edges, it looks like the clouding is inside the glass like between two pieces of class. Is there two pieces of class in the windshield. I can't feel the clouding on the inside or the out side of the window. Has anyone seen this?

Yes you glass is 2 pieces with a layer of plastic in between. You will never get rid of it. If not bad I would not worry about it. If. In your vision new windshilds is only way.

Had the same thing happen on my old 77 Class C. Moisture wicks up the layer in between the 2 layers of glass and causes a hazy cloudy look. If it gets too bad , the windshield has to be replaced.

Hi ! Welcome to IRV2! We're sure glad you joined the gang!

Congrats on the new rig! Yes, the windshield is made with two pieces of glass with a clear plastic between. That's what makes them shatter into little pieces that are not likely to cut you. Have fun and keep her between the ditches!

Good luck, happy trails, and God bless!

Just replaced the glass in my 1995. Your glass is delaminating, it may eventually crack. I first noticed the delamination 2 years ago Passenger side of mine last fall began cracking in a corner and after numerous failed attempts to stop the spread it eventually cracked across the entire glass. I elected to replace both sides. Replacement on mine was $2000 for both windshields. It should be less for your 73 with it's flat windshields

If they are flat glass then any good glass shop can make new ones for you, figure $10 / square foot for laminated glass. I made many for folks when I had my glass shop! Good Luck , Bobby
