Rear window for 320

Unread postby FSJNut on Thu Feb 07, 2013 1:31 pm

Mine has been replaced with what looks like plexiglass. I would like to replace it with the real thing. Source anyone?

The 320 rear glass is flat isn't it? If so then it would just be a matter of taking it to a glass dealer that also does automotive glass. They can use your plexiglass window as a template to cut you a new glass version.

X2. Just make sure it's safety glass. Post up the dimensions and a PIc. I am not familiar with 320's so I don't know if any of the glass I have would fit. Also you can Call Foretravel and get the parts guy that deals with old Travco's He can get the gaskets. i the same one the windshield uses and he might even know where to get the glass. I wanna say Guardian but I gotta look and see.
I forget which extension is his but which ever one you call just ask for he guy who deals with Travco.

Thanks for the replies and links. It looks to me like it has a slight curve. I'll see if I can get a pic this weekend and post.

It is curved and 27" x 69". I should probably replace the gasket as well.
There is a decal inside next to this window talking about pulling the ring for use as an emergency exit. :o

At first I thought we had the same rear window but now I can see that yours is taller... and maybe narrower. I have that same "escape ring" under my 270's rear window. I guess they all do.
I would drive the coach to a glass place and inquire about the rear window before you take anything apart. They should be able to give you an answer or maybe direct you to someone who can help.

Call Foretravel.The parts guy is a PIA to get through to but he can get you the gasket and can point you in the right direction for the glass.

I'll give Foretravel a call. Sounds like I need to call them anyway for the gasket, so might as well get it all there. Thanks for the replies.
