Trailer: Burro 13 ft
Posts: 51

I bought an '85 Burro recently that has had the front window modified to be a slider. The execution is less than desirable and likely will need to be replaced. I was hoping to find either a replacement window or a rock guard that could act as a weather barrier in lieu of a complete replacement. Currently I don't have any rock cover and cannot trust the window to deal with rain at speed. I have searched RV windows and it appears a new window would cost at least $600 and would not have any provision for rock protection. Does anyone know of a source for either a rock guard or window replacement?

As it turns out, I will likely keep the window frame and make a new fixed polycarbonate replacement with possibly a custom, removable rock shield for driving. If anyone's curious, I talked with Motion Windows? today and got a price of $412 for a fixed window with laminated glass and $730 for slider, all at 44" x 18" rough opening.
