New Defender Owner

Just traded in my 2018 General G2 for a 2020 HD 10 XT-P. Loving it so far and the wife us happy now that we can talk to each other and be heard over the engine noise. I had dealer install the automotive glass tip out front windshield and now looking for a rear windshield. Plenty out there to choose from but I am concerned with hauling the Defender on an open trailer with a full rear windshield. So far I haven't been able to find one that folds down and do not want to remove every time I haul it. Any suggestions?

if you have the front windshield installed I don't think it makes a difference in the rear windshield.  I installed the Super ATV plexiglass rear window just because that was the only "hard" window I could find that fit the Xmr and that trailered just fine at freeway speeds.

That's what I was hoping to hear. I full glass front is curved pretty good and should keep a lot of air just going over the top.

I’ve got a 2019 hunting edition with front glass window and rear glass window, so far I’ve towed it a couple hundred miles on an open trailer and have had no issues with the rear window, I’ve got no doors what so ever either

Thank you sir. I don't have any doors either and it will be a while before I order them. I am going ahead and order a rear window and give it a try.

AWESOME!!! Can't wait to see!!

Got it in and on but covered it back up after riding and forgot to take a picture. Instructions were about useless and hardest part was getting the rubber strip around the edge of the entire glass. Fit was good and towed at 70 mph with no issue. Of course I do have the full automotive glass  front windshield.
