Window replacement

I need to replace the windows in my Helsen 22. I want some suggestions on material. Should I use plexiglass, lexan, or tempered glass. Additionally should it be clear or tinted. Keep in mind this in a trailer sailor.

Regards
Maverick

I would use clear plexi. It will be the least expensive. Glass ages nicely, and lexan is very strong, but in your situation, clear acrylic would be easy to work with and cheap.
