New member just joined today. In the process of working on my build sheet and today while looking at various post I was alarmed when I read they are not adding front windows to 21 footers. Was this right?

Welcome aboard Ralph and congrats on your purchase.

It's a $300 option according to Escape's website, options list for the 21. Here's a snip:

Welcome to the Escape Club!

The reason the front window is no longer standard is that the bathroom is at the front of the trailer in the 21' now so a window spanning the entire front is not possible. The optional window that can be ordered is offset to the side over the bed. If you look through the "It's Friday" pictures of the new 21s, you'll see a few with the added optional window.

We don't have a front window and don't want one because we sit with our backs against the front wall, no window to contend. We don't want more light there because it is the bedroom. They also have a shelf across for items above the bed, however, we had it deleted to be able to sit up straight when reading. No worry of water getting in the window there onto the bed, and there is a side window there anyway and door on the other side. Some people do get the optional front window and they like it.

Also the front optional window is off center, it is about 1/3 from the street side and 2/3 from the curb side.

Here are some photos Ralph. Obviously this isn't the 2017 model, but the front window location will be similar -- right above the head of the bed.

Just to clarify for anyone considering a used 21'... the off-centre front window location, which is caused by the bathroom location, has always been off-centre in this model because the bathroom has always been in this location in the 21'.

Good clarification, Brian. It never was a standard item in the 21 and I should have caught that in my earlier post.

I thought we would miss the front window when we ordered our 21, but we don't. We love the shelf above our heads and we prop ourselves up to read using the Captains lights. When we back our trailer into campsites the dinette, with windows on 3 sides, generally faces the lake (we fish a lot) and the front of the trailer faces the campground road.
