That's it for us. We like to be able to see all four directions in case we hear something interesting going on. We were thinking more along the lines of spotting four legged wild life.

We have the very first 5er with no window up front it was built in nov 1995 as we told them we didn't want it. since then more were ordered and some returned to remove the window. removing the flat spot for the window was the only modification on the new mold after the fire

actually that sir,,,is a fine idea. i consider the 13 perfect, the only improvement one could make being a permenent bed such as the 5th has.
but that would limit it to being towed only with a truck so....?

And here I thought that big bedroom window was referred to as the "exhibitionist option"...

Our 1996 5er has the window and rock guard. I like the light but we never take it off when the camper is out of the yard. I'm afraid people will walk by our campsite in the early morning and see my full moon.

Full moon over the frontier!!!

Hi: All... The trouble with the "Black Glass" windows is that they reverse when the lights on inside. You can't see out but you can see IN!!!
Thank goodness for window shades...

The 19' Escape has threee bedroom windows. Depending on the campground set-up, the best view can be out of that picture window.

The person back there on the wall may appreciate the spacious feeling that the bedroom picture window gives even though the shades are drawn much of the time. A wall can seem very confining. If you are by the water though and have the shades open, may have to watch out for boats!
