I had a opaque shower door in my Eggcamper, worked nice.

The ones I like have had the glass shower door like Jims which I also prefer.
I would think that changing out the Bath door would be a very easy mod too.

On the other hand I have never taken a shower in one and didn't think about the end shape causing the bath to be cramped?
Makes sense though,maybe the soft door would work better and be worth the aesthetics?

The Eggcamper's volume is impressive however Robin's picture, post 26 is very telling, no front or rear windows.

This is really what talked me out of buying an EggCamper when I had a chance.

I like laying in bed and gazing out the window in the morning too much.

The lack of windows , only being offered in all electric version and their unwillingness to modify or offer any customer desired options convinced me to look elsewhere . This weekend we were camping off grid in Wisconsin and Saturday mornings temps dropped to 41 DEG F ,sure was nice to have a propane furnace to take the chill off and a propane cook top to make HOT coffee

Which company is better to deal with, i.e., returns phone calls, email, etc?

There are pro's and con's to this. Less windows means less chance of leaks and more privacy. In addition the rear street side is an awning window, can be left open in the rain. There is a vent over the bed which I installed a clear vent cover. At night there was a nice moon glow. The other vent had a fantastic fan installed with a clear vent cover. I felt very secure without that back window. I also installed an opening door window, so at night there was cross ventilation.

Definitely EggCamper, Jim Palmer posts his cell phone, I have talked with him while he was at breakfast (forgot about the time zone difference) and while he was eating dinner.

If we lived in our camper instead of just use it for occasional recreational outings, I might feel differently about this, but the window issue really seems to me to be a lot to do about nothing, (or at least nothing much). We go camping to enjoy the outdoors, not sit inside and look out. And as far as a window over the bed, I don't understand that, because that's exactly where the EggCamper has the windows! A large one over the head and another one over the foot of the bed. They don't have one in the back, but in almost all the state park sites that we have seen, that would open up to nothing but a row of bushes. They do have another window at the side dinette, where you can look out as you eat or sit at the table.

If you go with eggcamper be aware of the wafer thin cushions. Last I read, you have to pay extra for the standard thickness foam cushion found in most other RV's. Don't know if that is still the case for 2013 but just wanted to pass the heads up along if you place and order. Keep us posted on what you decide.

I like lots of windows because they allow ventilation. Ifits raining and I cant open the roof vents, then I need lots of open windows for air flow.

Well Ray maybe thats why there are different trailers with different features to choose from?

I am glad that my camping style is different than yours too.

No two people are alike, neither are their trailers.
