Replaced Frosted Door Glass

I replaced the frosted door window with a piece clear glass and what a difference it makes. DW and I hated sitting on the couch and trying to look through the frosted glass. Much more natural light comes in and we are able to watch the deer, bears, turkeys and Little Pine Creek flow by. Found the glass at a local RV dealer who removed it from an old RV unit and it is really easy to change out.
Had snow here in Central PA on Monday after spending the weekend at the RV in shorts and tee shirt. Globle warming, na.

I like that idea, do you have any way to shade the window when you want privacy? Any pictures of the result?

The plan now is to attach a strip of velco above the window and to have DW fashion a curtain with velco at the top, match the two velcos up and instant curtain for privicy. Can remove it when we are there.

I added limo tint to our entry door glass.

I'd LOVE to see that mod, as well! The plus for me would being able to see who is outside your door.

One advantage of the real living area floor plans is you can see outside from the slide out window.

I did not want to see out better... so I added a stained glass window to my door.

Good to have options. We are also ones who don't want to have to close a shade when we don't want to be on public view.

Already have enough of those.
