An egg that comes to you -- sweet

That's a great photo!

Just curious: Does the window over the stove crank out or is it fixed? (I know the newer crank outs usually are only the center part and wondering if they have changed that.)

Have fun with your new baby

Congrats! Looks nice and shinny!

Looks like the same window in the front shower on our 2005 Scamp.

Thanks for the reply. That's excellent! On the older, square-cornered jalousie windows, like I have, the whole panel opens. Then it seemed like when they went to the radius-cornered ones, only a small panel in the middle would open -- so you had only 33% of the ventilation. I'm happy to see that new style; radiused corners and the entire pane opening is a great combination!

Here's what the old-style kitchen window looks like; made by Hehr:

And this is what I had been seeing, in the past, for the radius style jalousies. As you can see, only the middle 1/3 opens:

I love being able to keep them open all the time - never have to think "Is it going to rain?" (Of course I close them when trailering.)

Again, congrats!

It's far from new from Scamp. My 1988 has a bathroom window that is exactly as described..... hinged from the top and radius cornered and black framed. The only different between the bathroom window and those that order a small window for the kitchen is the frosted glass. Now the kitchen window I have, because it's larger, is a slider.
