Well, thats just kinda what we do here. And you're welcome. I just hope it works out. Oh, and we love pics here too, even if the windows are not in such good shape at the moment. Lets have some pics of your new baby.

Again, thank you so much for the warm welcome!
My wife and I can help with transport, that is what we do right now, (deliver motorcycles and anything else that will fit our trailer or F350 bed) best part no charge!!! until we can get our (shoolydoo) up and livable. Cant do all at one time but a few over a couple of trips.
We have to make some money that's why we cant do all at one time..but a few stuck here and there..will get it done.

If you can do some precise measurements, I still have all of my glass and frames from a 2002 Thomas:

The following dimensions are outside of frame to outside of frame:

Side windows: vertical sliders, 27 3/8" wide x 28 1/2" tall, 26 of them
Entry doors: 15 5/8" wide x 84 3/4" tall, 2 of them
Large rear window in fold up escape panel, but my bus is a rear-engine so it may not work with yours.
Driver's side slider

I don't know how universal they are, but hopefully at least the glass would be the same size. If you want just the glass, I can measure that after I take one unit apart.

Maybe if the frames don't fit perfect, the glass could be still useable. I was going to scrap all of these out for the aluminum, however if you can use them, they're yours, no charge. The only problem would be the shipping, since each window with its frame weighs 14 pounds, and I don't know how much the doors weigh - maybe 40 pounds each.

I'm in Aberdeen, SD and can travel out 100 miles or so.

Thank you all for the responses!

Roadrunner - I think that some of your windows and the entry door would fit great!!

Skoolydoo - where are you located? Would you be coming through Colorado? What do you like to drink??

Rhombus - thanks so much! Some of those side windows may work, but I will have to get back to you on some of the details, particularly timing. (Love the rhombus name!!)


Our side windows are two sizes (see photo for how I measured):
a) 14" tall and 25" wide
b) 14" tall and 32: wide

Driver's window :
2 panels that slide horizontally, 20.5" tall x 14.5" wide
Only one is broken

Entry accordion-opening door:
Our door has 4 panels, bottom panel 12" wide x 41" tall and the top panel 12" x 23"
One top panel and one bottom panel are broken

Windshield :
42.5" wide x 34" tall
We heard from a local school that might have a windshield available, but we haven't gotten exact measurements yet.

We've decided not to replace the the damage in the back (emergency exit and windows) - our new layout doesn't require us to keep the broken windows.

And more info to come...

I REALLY want to "counsel" those sorry individuals. That just wasn't right for them to do that. We had a rash of teens shooting out car windows here in town a few years back. One of the teens was brought into the local constabulary by his stacking swivel by his old man.

Skoolydoo - where are you located? Would you be coming through Colorado? What do you like to drink??:bow

Coke is the drink!

I am from Okla but go all over.

beret, how many windows do you need? I assume you need all four of the door windows but how many of the seat windows? Let me know ASAP so I can build a shipping crate. I sent Skoolydoo a private message with my phone number so we can coordinate. Thanks.

So amazing!!

I think all we'd really need would be 2 of the 28" wide and 2 of the 35" wide (four total) and the accordion door panels.

You guys are all so awesome!

I'd say the side windows you can probably cover most and score the rest from an rv/camper. As for the windshield, Is each side one solid piece or are there two pieces per side(4 total)? Either way, front windshields aren't the most enjoyable thing to replace. Make sure you have plenty of help(2 people minimum) plenty of lube, and plenty of patience.

Also, if you get one shipped in, open it and ensure that it's intact before the ups man leaves. Most of the ones we order in are broken on arrival.
