OK, it's my own fault or tempting fate suggesting that caravans never need spares (as per the other thread).

So today i get a message for the chap i've bought the caravan (Avondale Grampian) from, He's moved the van from storage and on the way back to his house he's picked-up a broken window as a result of throwing a stone up off the tyres - typical.

The window itself is fine all the way to where the rubber meets the van; does seal tight. But just below it the outer / lower part of the DG has broken off where it goes over the front of the van. I'd already seen the van, so i know it wasn't like that; so he's not pulling a fast one.

The question is - Where do i go for another one (he's covering the cost - within reason); are there caravan breakers, parts dealers or what happens in these situations?

Caravan workshops can order replacement windows direct from Polyplastic - the tint may appear not to match but that's because plastic caravan windows tint fades with age.

Miriad Products are importers and distributers of 99% of caravan components, polyplastic being one of them, before you ring, make a note of all the numbers on the window as they will only ask you for them.

Hi, If you go onto Miriad's web site there is a page with exactly the information they need to order a new window.

You'll need the Roxite number from the window which is in the top right hand corner, this is like a window pattern number. You'll also need the make, model, year etc of the 'van and the position of the window (front nearside etc.)

The roxite no. is the main thing though.

Hi JP,
if you were to buy new you might like to bear in mind that the window won't be marked with the CRIS number. I don't know if that will bother you but if it does the cost needs to be taken into account,
Regards,
Ian.

Hello

Which part of the Roxite number is important?
My broken window Roxite details are:-
BY90807920

Polyplastic

Roxite PMMA

E1(in a circle) 43R-001745

0811 Holland

The replacement window has these details:-


V-X/B POLYPLASTIC

ROXITE PMMA

E1 [IN CIRCLE] 43R - 001745

TRANGLE 07

0707 HOLLAND


Do you know if the replacement is suitable.

Many thanks for any help.
