Can you not get one from the Trillium Factory in Calgary?

Where are you located?
Those rock guards are as rare as hens teeth. It looks like the outside frame is still OK, and can be saved. The rippled stuff that is missing is called Filon. It can be purchased new, or better yet used. The window sections can be replaced individually. Do you have any close up pictures of the damage? Inside and outside would be nice.

Your trailer came uncoupled at speed? Wow. What did the damage?

I will take a look at what I have. I might be able to locate some of the panes. It looks like two were broken.

It looks like it can be fixed, take it apart and really assess the damage,
Flat glass is cheap and plexiglass is available.

I don't see much bent aluminum. There is nothing special about the glass. It looks like it is totally repairable.

The rock guard looks to be missing one piece of aluminum. The vertical piece that separates the flat section from the clapboard section. Did you find that? The material that you need to replace the clapboard, (or flat) section is called Filon. You can get some at an RV scrap yard.

If the hardware is damaged, I definitely have some extra stuff you can use. I recently came into possession of several windows that are not the same overall size, but the panes are the same height, so the linkages should be the right length. PM me if you need parts.
