Just got my used '06 27 BH and it may have been option but it has a non-opening front window and what I think is aluminum cover. I like the light but admit if you are not morning person maybe its not for you - it lets in a lot of light. Probably like someone said it was more costly and maybe not a hot button for buyers. They will build what sells !

The bil just had $3500 worth of repairs done due to a leaking front window seal. According to the place that repaired it, it was a fairly common issue with front windows. As stated before, those windows easier to leak when in a rain storm and driving 60mph. Knowing that, I now check all the window seals on a regular basis.

If you look at the Forest River Flagstaff/Rockwood Classic Super Light line of travel trailers, every floorplan that has a front queen bed slide has a front window, among others. I think their front caps are plastic and molded that way for window installation. We traded in a 2007 Flagstaff on our current trailer and it had a front window that leaked while under tow only.

Our 185rb has a front, non-opening window with road cover adjacent to our queen bed....been checking for leaks, none yet...I like the feature.

My Sprite had an opening front window and it's a feature I really miss. Even with the huge amount of rain we get it didn't leak ...even at 40 years old.


I think the real reason they have less windows in general is they think buyers prefer cupboards over views. I wish windows opened more too. Almost impossible to get fresh air in a modern trailer.
