Bob
Same here... My roof vent is open all the time with a maxi air cover except while driving. Too much dust!

Side windows closed for sure. Last time we towed a long distance and had the roof vent open (with vent cover installed) we had a nice sewer smell inside the TT which I believe due to the holding tank vent being so close to the roof vent it was pulling that nice fresh air in.

Definitely not on our Skylark. The windows hinge out from the top and rely on gravity to hold them down on the stops. The wind at highway speeds would be pretty bad for them.

On sliding windows I would be concerned about hitting a rain storm while driving and having to run back a shut all the windows once you could find a safe place to pull off.

Maybe you could open them while your significant other checks in at the camping office.

If you check your roll out windows you might find they are closed but have about an inch of lift if the control was not turned to the stop. I noticed a flapping window and on checking the others they were not fully closed down.

We always close up the trailer when traveling. No smells and no dust.
