After reading what's been said on the threads about repairing the front window I've decided I'll probably go with the advice someone provided to do away with the window. It wasn't clear anyone's done that, but some said they'd choose the option if they had it to do over.

The plexiglass is crystalized and besides the spiderwebbing a person can see from the inside, one crack a knifeblade will fit into and another beginning spice up the landscape.

My tentative plan is to cut a piece of panelling the size of the channel behind the window, use an electrical plug box on the in-between side to keep as a compartment to house a GPS Earthmate reciever so's it can pick up sats and fill in the entire void between the plexiglass and panel sheet with foam. Hopefully that will provide enough stability to what remains of the plexiglass to hold it intact and stop any more ideas it has about being a Communist.

And it will offer a place for the GPS receiver to sit without forever banging and bouncing around. I like to run a laptop with Street Atlas USA [Delorme] on the long roads, and Terrain Navigator with the topos when I'm somewhere topos can be helpful. But the receiving unit's always been a Commie.

If anyone here has any experience or knows anyone who's blocked off that front window and regretted it I'd be obliged to hear about it.

Thanks, JackP

my prevous toy home had been done walled over the window on the inside . rubber roof put on the whole top and down over the front could see outline of former window flat glass glass maybe still in it i dont know. i think with that worthless type of window would be best to remove and cover over with aluminum camper skin. but i would not know the best way to do it somone on here will know how to fix it so the least chance of lecks.

i'm pretty sure it was on this site that someone had removed the window. they painted over what they filled it in with black and actually it looked like it had a window on the front, at least from the picture.

5Toyota and 90ToyDolphin: Thanks for the replies. Looks aren't a factor for me, but water is. Still, I hate to waste that bubble as a place to put a GPS receiver. At the moment the crack's looking at Gorilla tape as a temporary fix. Gracias, Jack
