Windows can be with or without an external frame although the construction of the double-glazed acrylic window fitted to both are identical. Opening windows normally are hinged from the top.
Available in clear and various tints. Grey tint is the most popular. Bronze tint is fitted to many models built up to 2005 but has been withdrawn as it was found not to be UV stable and this resulted in the bronze tint faded with prolonged exposure to sunlight. Most windows also have a printed band around the edge. The colour of the hinge rail fitted to the window can vary depending on when the caravan was built, however, the hinge rail is not removable and therefore cannot be refitted to a different window to match the other windows fitted to the caravan. All of these factors need to be taken into account if an owner is considering buying a second hand window, together with the the internal positions of handles and stays.
Acrylic is relatively strong but is susceptible to cracking if it sustains a hard impact to the edge. Cracks cannot be repaired. The surface of acrylic is also susceptible to scratching.
Some older windows with a printed bands, and dot fade around the edge, can suffer from delamination. Delamination is not easy to detect but is often signified by a window panel experiencing excessive condensation.
Acrylic can also develop crazing, that cannot be reversed, if the wrong window cleaner is used.
All at advancedglass,
I would like to thank everyone for the wonderful service you gave me today. Lewis went well beyond the call of duty to ensure I had no more problems with my Motorhome. It is unfortunately very rare today to find someone who cares as much about keeping the customer happy and delivering not a good service but a great service.
I will recommend you to everyone I know in the camping and caravaning world.
We just want to say a big thank you for the brilliant service received from you and your team
We are very happy with the new windows – they make our motorhome look at least 10 years younger!
Thanks again and I wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year
I just wanted to thank you for getting things sorted out for our motorhome window. The new Window was fitted on Monday and we’re back in business.
Just to let you know that the replacement window was delivered on Friday and was fitted in less than 5 minutes. Marginally longer than it took to lose it. I won’t be leaving a window open again!!
I just wanted to thank you for your help and the excellent service.
Many thanks again

I wish to thank you for your excellent service with my order. The new windows have certainly smartened up the look of the van, given it a new lease of life. Thanks again, superb guidance, advice and service!
