Most Windows For Scenic Views?

I'm looking at all the manufacturers and I know some have extra windows as an option but what is your opinions on the egg that would provide the best scenic view? Dealing with a small space would be a challenge but with enough windows, I do not think it would be a problem. We enjoyed the pop-ups because it gave us the ability to actually enjoy looking at the area we were camping in. Any direction would be appreciated. Thank you.

Your best bet is to take a look at all the photos of the campers and you'll see window choices. I have views out all 4 sides of my camper, and you can't beat that! If you have a full bath at the front, you'll lose that front window. Check out the Scamp and Casita sites for camper layouts and specifications too. Of course, most people plan to be outside the camper more than inside, which will give you the absolute best views of all Happy Shopping to you

Have to agree with Pam, while I'm happy with the large windows in the rear of my Escape 17B & the large front window, I spend most of my time outside the trailer so the size & number of windows would not be as important in deciding on a trailer as many other characteristics...

The number of windows for views isn't critical to us as most people suggested because one is rarely in the trailer looking out. If the weather obliges we're outside.

We like the trailers with windows on all sides not for the view, but because they provide in internal openess, a bigger feeling, hence we dislike the front bath configurations.

I doubt you'll find a small trailer with more glass area and windows than the older (1500 series) 17' Bigfoot models. 8 windows if you count the frosted glass window in the door. The deluxe models with a wet bath only have 7 due to no window in the bathroom.

I like the large windows available on the Lil Snoozy. They seem bigger than normal, and the mfr will put one right across from the sofa. Great for gazing out while eating and such.

We have lots of windows of good size in our Escape 19. We do like that for when inside, either laying on the bed, or sitting at the dinette.

But, like others have eluded to, their need is hopefully minimal. We prefer to be outside as much as possible too. Most of our time spent indoors is task oriented, or at night time, so the windows are not that important then.

All this said, I still like to have plenty of window area for those times it can be taken advantage of. They do stop you from feeling as closed in as you would without them.

Our 1980 Boler 17 ft had 8 windows if I remember right. The front and back windows were both large jalousie style with another jalousie on the back side and multiple small sliders.

We thought it felt REALLY open.
