It looks like from Sun-view's website they are all special order. I'll let you know after I call them.
Thanks so much for that info BRB----interesting! Obviously these units are new to me, it would be interesting knowing their construction techniques and materials used for the Camper/RV market.

Also curious if their special orders allows custom sizes too?

Another place that does a lot of RV and boat windows is Motion Windows (aka Peninsula Glass). They are in the PNW.

Thanks Viva, I was very impressed with Sportsmobile's work. They used Reflectix and then lined it with an interior cloth. I'm going to pull it out and install my vents, ladder rungs, roof rack and some dimmable lights when I can find some.

Here's some interior pics or the Transit high-top. Kleenex box for size reference.

They had put a shelf all the way around the inside where the high-top meets the van, I took it out and will use part of once my cabinetry is in.

Wow, now I like it even more. You could live in that overcab space where the Kleenex box is, for Pete's sake! If my SMB had been a high top I'd still be tooling around in it. Maybe one will find me one of these days

Thermopane Windows- So I've called Sun-View Industries. They have a few thermopane windows in stock but do mostly custom. They have any thickness in 1/8" increments up to 2 1/2". They have different tints (clear, light grey and dark grey) and different trims (white or black). They had a couple that will work for me so I ordered them. 2 / 15x36 cost $198.55 and around $110 to ship. They were very helpful on the phone.

Dimmable LED RV Lights- I called LED4RV.com, again very helpful. They have lots of lights and dimmers for RV lights.
