Hi Alan
How odd I am with sureterm and have just recently had the passenger windsceen changed because a crack had developed coming up from the bottom of the screen but was now within reach of the wipers so prior to its mot desided to get it replaced
Rang sureterm up who put me through to national windscreens who had no idea what a Winnebago is.ended up have to do all work myself ie measuring the screen getting the numbers off and finding a local supplier.
found a company called Mercury RV and a guy called Simon and he sorted the whole thing out for me
reason it cracked was the frame under the glass had rusted and push the screen out which started the crack Mercury RV cured all the problems prior to the new screen being put in, no charge to me (NIce chap really).
There was no mention of a limit and no questions about cost was told national windscreen had to pay up front for glass befor imported £1400-£1500+vat
Great job only problem early Winnebago Itascas had Blue top tint screens that are no longer made so have now got one blue screen and one green screen
hayho not to worry

Hi well as far as it goes sure term are the biggest bunch of idiots I have had to talk to.
When i phoned them they said AA Autowindshield where there suppliers so contacted them and took them days to even find one at a very expensive price.

But as to the limit I have nothing written in my insurance details but they tried to say it was a £1000 limit but after loads of phone calls they are now paying the lot except my £75 excess.

But all new policies will have £1000 glass limit.

It may be that once they introduce that limit most RVer's will not consider insuring with them.
