Went to new Albany RV looked at 5vr

So we went to check out the new Albany RV. It is a really nice place. Looked at some Jayco fifth wheels. We really liked the Eagle Premier 375BHFS, five slides , holy cow. It is a really nice unit. We also looked at the TT Eagle 324 bhts. Nice camper but I would never buy one with my young son. What in the world is Jayco thinking putting the breaker panel in the kids room. It was the first thing my five year old opened to see what it was. Sorry but that is in the wrong place. I also asked about the frame less windows in another thread no response. But just about every unit we looked at with the frame less windows had at least one broken. They were not attached to the window arms no more. I could not get any of them back in there tracks. Also they only open a couple inches. I love my double pane windows that slide. I can open them all the way. This was not just Jaycos. My wife and I were also appalled with how people were with the trailers. We walked in one and a door was torn off another had the light above the sink ripped right off the sealing. Molding ripped off and the worst someone took a knife to a couch. Not to mention the garbage left in the units. All the damage was done by people, I asked. People who do that should be ashamed and get caught. However the new Albany RV is cool and my wife really likes that 5vr but the double pane windows are not an option the salesman said. I love my Eagle TT, they would have to give me a great deal. The windows were even easy to pry open as I watched a women pull one from the outside and open the window
She broke the little wheels on the bracket arms and knocked out the screen.

This one of the reasons why I like order a new RV. I just purchased a 2015 Eagle and didn't want one off the lot where hundreds of people were walking through it. We made a deal to have one made for us from Jayco

Original poster, I was not impressed with Albany RV in the least. Shawn their sales manager and his head salesman are well @55*****. I ended up buying from Johnston RV in Rochester. Better deals and better people to deal with. Absolutely no sales BS.

I saw the camper with cut seats. Sad. The facility is quite nice. I had a rather pointed talk with the salesman for my new unit, which will be picked up in a day or two. He got the message and has really done much better.

I got a small box from them and inside was the flyer announcing the grand opening and a little "rubber" motor home and some coupons for free antifreeze. Let's see, 1800 mi from Texas at 12mpg and diesel hovering between $3.50 and $4./gal. Guess I won't be going.
(I figured this out all by myself!)

Regarding frameless windows, while our X20E does not have them, it does have one window that pushes out like a frameless window, about the same distance too. It's really nice on rainy days, but doesn't hold a candle to the amount of air a sliding double pane window lets in. I'm glad most of our windows are the sliding type.
