It was expensive!

When we went and bought the Vegas 24.1 the windshield had a very large shatter zone that called for a replacement.

Originally, the retailer said it would be three days - but after over two weeks we found out that they were monkeying around and had not contacted Thor. With Thor involvement it got rolling.

We were quoted over $1,900.00, and we had the retailer pungle up the entire cost (and perhaps passed it on to Thor?). We were quoted that figure on making it part of the sales contract.

I really don't know if that was the actual cost, but we did not pay for it even when the dealer played around with getting it done.

Don't be surprised if it takes a lot longer than two weeks. Our 2016 had a windshield replaced under warranty. It took over a month and I think the cost was around $3000. It was shipped via truck freight, and I suspect it was made to order.

The dealer tried to charge me $500, the amount of additional labor that Thor didn't allow. When I mentioned to Thor and the dealer about this little forum, somehow they decided I didn't have to pay that!

In Florida, there is no windshield deductible. We have a new crack, so will be finding out how much that windshield is now. Ours is the taller windshield.
