On our new Scamp? Anyone have leaking issues with the jalousie style?

Our '82 Scamp has the jalousie windows and we love them! The best thing is that when it rains, we can leave the windows open part-way for ventilation without rain coming in. Of course, if it's a really bad storm and the rain blowing sideways, we'll close them, but that doesn't happen very often. We leave the windows open slightly all the time at home. We have never had any trouble with leaks.

Wish I had them! The radius windows only open less than half-way and unless I put a gutter material over the window or MaxxAir Vent in the window... I get moisture inside when it rains.

With the Maxx Air Vents can you remove the locking pin and open the window all the way still?

Yes, or at least as far as it will open. As Donna says, the glass slides over such that they really only open half-way.

thanks, I thought so, but wanted to be sure.

FWIW to anyone who wonders, the Scamp Jolousie windows only open as much as the sliders...with a slider you only get about 1/2 the window open, with the Jolousie ones the window is in 3 sections, the sides are both glass fixed shut, the center has 2 crank open panels,

I didn't know that the new jalousie windows were made so differently. We really have an advantage with our "oldie but goodie" windows. They have a 22" opening.

Even so, I would recommend going with the jalousies because of the option of keeping them open when it rains.

I'm with Donna. If Casita offered jalousies, I would have gone with them.

There appears to be TWO kinds of Jalousy windows, but I would prefer either over the sliders. We can only open a window when it rains, if we have a canopy up. Replacement parts are available from Vintage RV, and with proper sealing you should have no problem.

If I had a choice I would go for the jalousie windows, because of the aforementioned opening during a rain.
I have sliders and it gets pretty hot when they are closed during rain so I am forced to turn on the air or go out and sit in the screen room.

If only someone had replacement Burro windows that were jalousie.
