In my eyes, windows do matter. I bought the second egg I saw. The first was an older Casita
with a front bath and an AC stuffed into the rear window. That left only the side windows really visible. That comparison with a submarine was realy apt. The blue-carpeted interior, sagging in places, added to the barnacled, deep-sea impression.
It was a delight to step into the about-to-be-mine Scamp
, with a total of eight windows shining brightly. Our one major improvement, a MaxxAir fan, now adds a little shine from overhead, like a skylight. Oh, yes, got one of those, too. Now there's light
to spare. This summer I generally left the front window covered in camp, since it only reveled a view of the car.
I'm tickled to think what "jealousy windows" would be like. Either peepholes or escape
hatches, I'd guess.
However you spell it, I thought those slatted windows looked antiquated, but I realize their utility. When opened, the whole window is available for air flow, while a slider is always closed over half its surface. My sliders score on styling, and the fan makes up for what doesn't flow naturally. I'd love a sliding rear window one of these days, though, to add to the sense of space in the galley area.
