window replacement

A storm broke our escape window on our sunline toy hauler. A repair company is now saying they cannot find a replacement and want to charge me 1200 for a custom built window. I am new to all this RV ownership and dont know what to do. Can anyone help?

Hi Rodger,

I'm assuming this is a Sunline Tran-Sport and not a custom made hauler, right?

That story you got from the repair company is crazy... The window won't be cheap, and shipping especially won't be cheap, but it shouldn't be 1200.

Remove the entire window and frame from the coach. On the outside of the frame (which would have been up against the wall and hidden), there will be dimensions and model number info from the manufacturer of the window, which is probably Kinro.

What you can do is call Kinro. I believe Kinro won't sell to the public, you will probably have to go through an outside source, but explain your situation first and that you don't have a manufacturer to go to, because that's probably where they'll want to send you.

Also, a little tip. Since Kinro ships right out of their warehouse, make sure to request extra packaging all the way around from Kinro, regardless of who you order it from. These windows are very easily bent/damaged on the edges when transported in freight.

Kinro can be contacted at (574) 264-6590 or customerservice@kinro.com

If it only broke the glass how about a glass repair shop? One of the kids cracked one of the double panes in a window on the house, and our local glass place came out and replaced it for like $100.
