p.s. good luck finding *anything* newer than about 2010 with manual windows, even the cheapest Kia's and Hyundais have them.

My '17 F-350 has crank windows to match it's crank driver

THere's a Forest Service Campground in Packwood, WA, that was built in the 30's when camping meant tents. It's very nice but is impassable for the big RV's and fifth wheels. Still, they try...and then get furious because they're stuck in between two big trees and have to back out the one way road. They refuse to read the sign at the entrance that says the sites are small and the roads narrow and 'cannot accommodate larger RV's". My 17 ft. Casita fits just fine.
Love this comment. We traveled last summer around the country without reservations. We were saved a few times because we had a 17 foot trailer.

I have friends with a beautiful motorcoach I call a mobile condominium. Its really wonderful. But talk to them about favorite campgrounds and the discussion rapidly morphs into do you think I can get into their campsites, do you think I can fit the campground roads, and so on. Since I mainly camp at National Parks, the answer is often No. But boy, when they do arrive, their rig is incredibly comfortable!
