until the awning
is deployed. Sliders, when fully open, open less than 50%. Using the Window Maxx solves the rain issue, they still cover up nearly 1/3 of the smaller windows
Here's a picture of Roger's Trillium

John IMHO you're making a good choice
Now you have both sides. You are right about the awning
, I have a Catalina 2500 which they no longer make. I like it better than the Fiamma or the Horizon which would make another thread!
One point, If I were to settle for crankouts,I would have them on the sides only. A rear slider is especially nice for a clear and unobstructed view from the table.
BTW; the sliders provide more than adequate ventilation, as do the new crankouts which have two stationary sections.
My window max units cover 1/4 of the window.
Actually, I think the side windows on the Scamp ought to be shorter in height, which would allow for a better fit for the dinette cushions and get the window treatments up a little further off the bed.
If I were to order a new one again, I would consider having the slider kitchen windows installed in place of the side windows.
