THE ONLY FORUM FOR ENTHUSIASTS OF CLASSIC SAFARI CARAVANS MADE BETWEEN 1948 AND 1982.
This group was started in 2003, with the aim of encouraging the preservation and enjoyment of all Safari Caravans made before 1978 and of the classic shape with the drop front side window made until 1982.
We try to assist owners in preservation, restoration, sales and purchase of these excellent Caravans. Membership is open to anyone who owns, has owned, or would like to own a Safari caravan, or is a supplier of products or services directly related to these Caravans.
The world's largest collection of photographs of Safari Caravans is now on the Facebook group.
Assuming yours is single glazed, for the big front window it is important to get thick enough perspex. If you can find a plastic sign manufacturer in your area, they can get clear perspex in all thicknesses and can cut it to your size.
If double glazed you will need to find a secondhand replacement - I have three units, all of which are slightly different sizes.

I am fairly sure that some considerable number of years ago Harringtons were able to (and indeed did) get one specially made to replace a broken one, which I have no doubt was an insurance claim.
Harringtons are no longer trading, but the key thing is that I am sure that they outsourced the work, so presumably any large caravan may well have similar contacts. At least it is an avenue which is worth trying.
I may quite possibly have details of the original window manufacturer somewhere in my documentation, and just in case they are still trading I will have a look for it, but it is not immediately to hand, so please give me time.
