Door window replacement?

I'm not sure why the door on the our 28BHBE came with a frosted window, but the molding around it has several screws. Is there a direct replacement window that is clear?
99% of our windows are on the slide out side (driver's side), but all of our campsites we stay at face the lake. That means we get great views of trees, and only see the lake through our small kitchen window.

Ours is the same and I have removed it to reseal it with black RTV. It's frosted for privacy without needing some other type of shade.
To replace it with clear glass I would take it out, take it to a glass shop, and ask for a clear replacement piece of tempered glass for safety-not the stuff they sell at DIY hardware stores.

I have seen one that is slightly tinted that I believe is a direct replacement at camping world. It's catalog item 74221.

I'd like to change ours out as well...

I did that about 2 years ago and it makes a great window. It's an easy 1 person job with a little help with some duct tape on the outside. I took my pane to the local glass house and got a tempered and tinted one for less than $30.00 ( don't remember the exact price) but it's well worth it.

Sorry, forgot to add a pic of the inside. I bought this shade from IKEA for $20.00 and it's a perfect fit. Keeps the sun out if need be or a street light and you got privacy at night if you need it.

Perfect! Thank you.
What was the turnaround time for them to cut the glass? I'd like it to be a 1 day project

2-3 days, first they cut it then it's tempered and that takes a little time.

I can probably find a way to secure it for a couple days...
Do you have any pictures looking outside with the blinds up?

New guy here. I pulled my glass out on a different RV, but I assume it is the same. I pulled off the interior trim ring, measured the glass without breaking the seal on the out side. Then it can be ordered. When I was ready, I pulled the outside trim and glass out, popped out the glass, cleaned the sealant off. I was painting the trim at the time and tinting the glass. Then while that was out of the unit, I took a 55 gallon trash bag (drum liner), cut it up one side, slipped it over the door, and pulled the cut open side inside the RV (between door hinges and frame) and closed the door. That gave me several days with no issues.
