Prices are on the Scamp website so it is not a secret Donna. I bought a 18x24 for the door side at $154. and a 18x36 for the other side for $170. both made by Hehr and alot cheaper then getting them from Hehr. Going back in the spring to get 2 of their 7x18 crank outs at $74. each

Both Scamp and Trillium are using Hehr Tork or Torque (their term) windows. Scamp uses the small size and only on the sides. The rear is a slider. If you camp with power and have air conditioning, sliders are fine. Without air conditioning jalousies are the way to go. Raz

I have a crank out awning, no way jalousies would interfer with the deployment. And if they did, the simple solution would be to NOT open the windows 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 with the newer jalousies: 2009 Trillium 13 ft Jalousie Windows

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.

will save you from having to add a Maxxi Window vents that I had to add in order to get some air into the trailer when raining! Not a nice/easy job! I would stick to sliders at the rear though!

We are happy with the window configuration on our 2011, 13' Scamp. The side windows are crank-type and the rear window is a slider. Here is something to consider regarding window coverings. The crank-out windows do not seal completely. This is an advantage in that the interior is a bit ventilated at all times but a disadvantage when you are sleeping in the dinette/bed area. We do not like the feeling of air drifting down over our faces. When we installed custom-made manually-rolled shades of Ron-Loc blackout/insulating fabric (available at JoAnn's fabric) we sewed Velcro (hook and loop fastener) continuously across the bottom. That solved the air leakage issue handily. The other window shades only have short bits of Velcro on the bottom in that we want the ventilation so as to minimize condensation. Note: Towing the trailer home from Backus we simply draped a light fleece blanket over the curtain rod and tucked it under the mattress at our head end. That was a good temporary solution. Please see my photos below. The photos show the left side without and with curtains, the back and right windows without curtains. These photos show my first rendition wherein I had Velcro on the top edge as well as the bottom. I now have the top edge connected to a dowel with which I can simply roll up the shade when parked and drop it while in tow. There is no storage issue as a result...also no wrinkling.

You do understand that these won't actually get/put the crank out...right?
