I may be researching replacement windows soon. The Escape Pod has some rectangular, decidedly un-aerodynamic framed windows with square corners jutting our from where nearly flush windows with smoothly rounded corners should be.


If I go down this rabbit hole, I will denote such and post updates.


Cheers!

I replaced the rear/side windows in my CT with horse trailer windows earlier this year. Very economical, but took some fussing both to install, and later to chase down a few minor leaks.
I described it on the last page of my build thread:
http://www.fiberglassrv.com/forums/f...-66181-17.html
Under $250 for the pair, including shipping from Oregon(?) to Iowa.
Not a "high end" solution, but I'm quite pleased with them.

I had to trim the height of the opening about 1/4" top & bottom, and take about that much off the aluminum flange of the window itself. Because of the modest overlap onto the CT skin, I set them with automotive windshield urethane.
So.........not for the faint of heart, but an option............

Deb,
If you're asking about our horse-trailer windows, I feel they've worked out fine for us.
The big caveat with them is they're not designed for the U-Haul window-recesses. So I trimmed material both from the camper window opening AND from the brand-new window flanges. 2 Things most folks wouldn't want to do.
And then I glued them in place with automotive windshield polyurethane---a wonderful & durable material than can be incredibly messy to work with..... so, a 3rd caveat.
Hence, I don't promote our path, even tho' it worked well for us.
Gary

Likewise, even though I loved driving old air-cooled Beetles for years, I wouldn't recommend them to hardly anyone........'cause you have to tinker with them all the time........and you still end up with an only-marginally-safe vehicle, that gets mediocre mileage, with precious few creature comforts.
