Woot! It has the rear-awning windows too

Thanks!

The plot thickens!

So obviously Roadtrek doesn't make windows. They do in fact get them from CR laurence.

I could call my local Roadtrek dealer and buy the window using the above Vin. They'll mark it up from Roadtrek who will mark it up from CRLaurence. I'd rather cut out two middle men and buy direct. The issue is CRL won't sell the right rear via retail because of the liability with the door hitting the awning (which I'll solve by putting a stopper in the door's track so it doesn't go back all the way)
.
Apparently CR Laurence WILL sell the window to a commercial account.

so now, I need to find someone with a CR Laurence commercial account. I don't mind paying a commission.

AZtrucks.com looks to be a dealer small enough that might hook you up.

Ed, here's the porthole I was telling you about. A little pricey, but this would be impressive.

Cool2 Thanks.

Hey Geek,

Thanks for this thread. It has been helpful for me with my newly purchased Sprinter. I've just ordered some Plasti-Dip to cover the bottom areas below the plastic molding. I'll do it in charcoal to give the van an apparent shadow effect. I've also contacted 80/20 about making some storage units inside.

You're sharing some good ideas here and on the Sprinter forum!
