But you would need a red and blue strap to facilitate this look.

Yep. It IS OCD. You're right. Well, as someone once said, 'know thyself'.

I wrap the pull strap around the rolling part of the awning , nice and neatly and always to the front of the trailer right by the lever to retract the awning. The same way every time, perhaps I have a problem

In regards to the thread I must admit I will miss laying in bed in the 19 and being able to pop open a blind and enjoy the view out the back. On the flip side of that our daughter will be able to do that in the 21. I guess I will just have to get out of bed and go outside with my first cup of coffee.

Not to worry, Dave. Methinks we all have our own list of problems. 'tis what makes us individuals.

As long as it is not dark, I always do this too. Kinda check out how the day is looking from the comfort of my bed. But still, lots (and lots) of pluses to the 5.0 layouts.

OK Jim and all, isn't it time to get this thread back on track

I wish I had taken a picture of our first trip with our new to us 5.0 where we camped right beside the Rainy River (in the rain of course) so just imagine how it looked out our back - actually side windows.

We took a short trip to the central Oregon coast last week and stayed at Sea Perch RV "Resort" near Yachats. Our view from the back window was awfully nice. As for the other photo, it's clear that we were not blocking the view of our neighbors!

I've had a few different and wonderful "out the back window" views on my 2013-2014 trip, but this one at St Mary campground in Glacier National Park is one of the best:

That second picture reminds me of an economic phrase, "conspicuous consumption"
no wonder we are in a fix, so to speak.
