I don't know of anyone finding a replacement door window, other than using a solid piece of glass which would make it a non-opening window.

Was thinking of that as an option. I replaced our door window on our Scotty Sero with a piece of Lexan and a new frame but the frame fit the existing opening. This will be more challenging.

Just get a piece of glass, or lexan to fit directly into the rubber weatherstrip. Automotive safety glass would work. I don't know the thickness of the fiberglass at the door window opening, but assuming it is 3/16" thick as at the side windows, and if you use 1/4" thick glass, then the AS1456 weatherstrip would work good as one groove is 3/16 and the other is 1/4". Or you could get a custom window made to fit. Look on eBay for RV windows or teardrop trailer windows, as there are always cheap windows there. You might get lucky and find one that will fit.

I went the easy way. Piece of smoked lexan. Cut it to fit and screwed it in with black windshield sticky rubber-like sealant. Used decorative caps over the bolts. No leaks. Looks great.

I like the look and seems pretty straightforward! I like the idea of leaving the existing opening if I want to put back a framed window in the future. What does it look like from inside? I don't see the decorative caps on outside. What did you use to cut the curved corners? I have a decent Jigsaw but guessing I would need a finetooth blade. Is it black weather stripping you used?

How did you go about replacing the door hinges? They look great.
If the door window is out, is there access to the inside of the door?
Mine doesn't seal 100% and old door/hinge screws are wobbly.

On the inside is just the bolts and unlock nuts. They are covered by the curtains. The decorative caps are black. You can get them at Lowe's. A fine tooth blade is all you need.
I made a template out of cardboard and cut the Lexan a little larger.
A simple fix for me.
