Rear window GONE?

OK, I give up, went on a 2 hr trip yesterday to a campground...
Setup, then later got ready for bed, but noticed a lot of bugs we had the lights on. few minutes later a plane flew over, sounded real loud, got to checking around, the 5ft wide read window was gone. Lost it somewhere on the interstate.

Anybody here has a similar problem in the past? An '05 Granite ridge, nothing changed all of a sudden the window falls out?
Can you get replacement glass, or does the whole window and frame have to be replaced?

Is this a new camper? If you've had it a while you would think a missing seal would have allowed the window to depart early in your traveling experience.

I'm still stuck on the fact that the window blew out during transit, but during the whole set-up operation and walk around the trailer when setting up, the missing window wasn't noticed until later on that night when bugs were flying around in it???

Sorry, guess I should have gone around in the dark and checked to see if all the windows were intact, guess I need to add that to my setup list.

Was thinking the same thing... I think Iíd notice a 5í wide window missing during setup. Even in the dark. And it wasnít bugs that got it noticed it was the sound of a plane flying over...

OP you most likely will need to get the window custom cut being that itís a 14 year old camper. But I could be wrong.

Would think the wind after it blew out would of caused a mess inside the RV.. Curtains, shades valences etc, plus anything loose inside the unit. I have never heard of the glass falling out of a window like that. Did it do any damage to the frame? Would think the frame holding the glass in must of been damaged.

Good Luck...let us know what you have to do to get it repaired.

I do a walk around even after dark on the RV with flashlight. Have lost a few side light covers over the years. I just like to check for any road damage, but, that's me

Yup, always have and always will do a 360 walk around my camper after setup making sure everything is good. Iíve learned not to assume nothing is loose, broken, or missing after a trip down the road with a camper.

Just a thought, was the window there when you left. I know it sounds stupid but maybe somebody removed it to try to go in and rob something but got distracted. there was a time where they removing the front windshield on class C’s to rob them.
