Fiat Ducato swing windows

Hi folks.
I'm new to this forum and looking for some help. I own a 2001 Fiat Ducato swing and looking to replace the windows due to cracks and one has condensation. The original windows were supplied by Birkholz whom no longer make them and I have been quoted nearly 2000 for one of the smaller top bed windows which I find to be unbelievable. Being a pensioner there is no way I could afford to pay this.
EECO can't help and the quote was from South Coast caravans who also suggested I try breakers. I live North Scotland where breakers for motorhomes are few and far between and would appreciate any suggestions.

Brexiters. It's your sh1t now. Whatever happens nationally and internationally you own it. I wish you luck. I think you're going to need all you can get and then some. Friday 13th December 2019.

I had a 900x450 replacement from
Advanced Glass Products
Site 7 Kidderminster Road
Cutnall Green, Droitwich
Worcestershire
WR9 0NS

409 for just that one. But it was spot on, even the cour which was a grey rather than the more ubiquitous brown at the time. It was posted FOC to NI (actually, it went direct to the dealer in Ireland)

And welcome to the forum!

Just to clarify:-
I assume the 'Swing' relates to a Hymer Swing and the windows required are plastic.

Ted.
I try and state simple facts in a nice way.

A photo of the window would help because some windows are within frame and some, probably yours, overlap the frame.
Birkhoz windows are no longer made, Dometic make windows with the same locking systems and I recently bought a replacement window from https://www.ukleisureparts.co.uk/, best price I could find .
