HELP!! Need windscreen for 1982 Dethleffs Globetrotter Merc

Hopefully someone can help me on here. I'm trying to find a new, or second hand windscreen for my van. I've spent hours searching online and elsewhere to no avail.
It's a 1982 Merc 207d with the Dethleffs Globetrotter living area. The windscreen is the really large type similar to a Hymer A class, but mine is much flatter and not rounded at the sides.

If anyone could help it would be very much appreciated.

many thanks

Liam

Are you buying it yourself or going via insurance? For small excess charged for screen replacement it is worth using insurance as it does not affect no-claims. Their approved agent(autoglass etc) will source the screen.

Hi

If its on a Merc 207d 1982, it will be the same as mine. Have you tried a Mercedes dealer? as these vans are very old now I wonder if they still have stock, they seem to for many items I have needed in the past.
Please let us know if and where you find one as there are a lot of those 207 and 208d vans on this forum. Good luck.

Regards

Antonia

I'll be paying for it myself, but had'nt thought of calling Auto glass. Sometimes the most obvious solution doesn't come up on the radar.
