I am currently trying to obtain two windows for my 1994 Abbey GTS 416 4 berth caravan, quite unsuccessfully it might be added, can anyone help me with a few pointers where I could get replacements from a breakers yard.

I require a both Nearside, the small kitchen window and the larger front berth window, hopefully I can get these replaced as the caravan is much loved and holds many happy family memories and I would love to keep her for another decade of two :)

All help is appreciated from the good folks on here.
Thanks in advance
Dee

Your best hope would be to locate an identical caravan with good windows at a breakers or you would need to search through their stock of windows in the hope you can find right size & colour. I have always found breakers unhelpful on the phone, you really have to visit them to find what you need.

Alternatively you can have new windows made using your old ones as patterns. To have 2 made won't be cheap, but if its worth it to you then this is your sensible option as it can be done in a reasonable time frame.

Give this company a call or email with details of what you require.

I don't have any experience of them but have read favourable reviews.

I used EECO for a replacement window, as I just couldn't find one to fit my unusual caravan. Although it cost over 300 it was worth it!

hoping to get a conversion done before the Spring!
