2020 Jayco Jayflight No Rock Guard

Anyone have ideas for adding a diy rock guard. Didn't realize the glass was just tempered when I bought mine with no rock guard. See pics of my broken window.

How did that happen? I've seen the newer trailers with a window in the front, not sure that is a good idea. My 1996 Fleetwood Wilderness had a window in the front, but it was covered by metal cover that raised up and acted as a sun shade when parked.

Hoped you can get it repaired without a hassle from the dealer.

On my 4th time out with this new trailer, I was about an hour from home on the interstate and I look in my rearview and the window is shattered. I assume it was a rock.

Jayco will replace with the same tempered glass window, I've been trying to get them to install the window with rock gaurd that was previously used, but they are being extremely unhelpful. They changed the design at some point in their 2020 production line. Mind boggling they would switch out for an unprotected piece of tempered glass.

Yikes. Our older 195 has the window with a guard. I would never go for bare window. Its kinda of a useless window as it does not open but to have a rock opened for you means wetness inside.

Both well used. Now up to 250 nights camping and 70,000 miles on the TT since purchase.

Holy smokes Gregekoehler, sorry to hear. We just took delivery, didn't even consider this as a potential issue.

I'd recommend figuring out a DIY rock guard, prior to any long hauls with this. I took 4 trips traveled about 2k miles and this happened. Jayco is out till January to fulfill the warranty replacement. I found a glass repair to do it for about $400. So beware this could ruin your trip.
