Windows while pulling

Just wondered what the norm is while pulling down the road. Do you ever crack a window open or even leave some open while going down the road, or are all your windows ALWAYS closed? I have always closed mine while on the road, but have been tempted on really hot days to crack a couple open for a little circulation. Obviously, roof vents are ALWAYS closed while on the road.

We have thought about leaving the windows cracked because of the heat. We have seen them opened on others while traveling. Our roof vents are always opened because we put covers over them.

I have always traveled with windows closed. Now more so with the frameless glass windows which open outwards.
Yet, like Marine 71-76, our roof vents are open. We put the Max Air series vent covers on them.
We are just a humble drinking couple with a hunting and camping problem.

With windows open you can get a lot of road dust inside.

As others have commented - windows always closed and roof vents always open with MaxxAir covers. We recently added sun screens to the side windows to help block the heat while traveling. The blinds by themselves don't really help in that respect.

Roof vent open, with max air cover. I never close my roof vent, not even in the winter.

Windows and blinds closed.

Sometimes I'll open them for the last few miles from my destination. Gets the camper aired out before I get in at the campsite.
