Camper Shell Window Replacement?

Anyone know where I could go too get a window replaced on my shell? The passengar side slidding window is shattered. I called a couple dealers and they said they dont sell just the glass, but that you have to buy the entire frame! Any ideas?

Re: Camper Shell Window Replacement?

A good auto glass shop should be able to come up with a new piece of glass alone, though it may be more expensive as a 'custom' job ...

Years ago I had a shell / canopy window 'shot out' by a Weedeater, and they only needed to replace the glass.

On another occasion (also years ago) they had to replace the entire window unit on another shell / canopy because it was essentially a one-piece unit (whole thing had to come out of the shell just to try and get at the glass).

So your options may well depend on the specific construction of your shell and window ...

Good luck with it ...

Re: Camper Shell Window Replacement?

if you know the mfg of the topper you maybe able to get a replacement glass,other wise like enola said it's to the glass shop.
the prob with glass shops is this,single thickness glass is not safety glass it can be made as safety glass but at additional cost,or you can get old fashioned windshield safety glass (double thickness laminated ) and use it but still has to be custom cut.
