Front window on 21?

My spouse and I are finalizing our build sheet and debating about the front window on the 21 (one of us might want it and one of us doesn't). If you have the front window: are you glad you opted for it and why? If you don't have the front window: would you get it if you had it all over to do again and why? Thanks in advance!

I had one in my Escape 19 but opted out in BlackJack. One you lose the shelf in the 21 and two I feel it is warmer without the window in the winter as it is not thermal and right over the bed.

We added the front window option and are happy with it. It allows for extra natural light into the trailer, and views of the outside, from a different angle. If its cold outside, you can always opt to leave the window rock shield closed.
I would recommend getting it.

We did not want the window or the shelf. We sit up in bed to read sometimes. The window would be in the way. Other things besides a shelf can be used for items. We didn't want more light from a window in the bedroom area. There is already a window. Depends on what you do and like and want. You may love a window.

21 front window

Jane and Lori,
Nancy and I like lots of windows, for the view at times, light, and security of being able to look out toward the TV or anything we secure to the tongue. We also had the window on the 19, did you have one there?
Have fun deciding and looking forward.
Jack and Nancy

Yes, I have often wanted to be able to look in the direction of the tow and you can't do that without any window on that side. Maybe we should have asked for a bathroom window on that side! Doubt they would have gone for it.

How about a couple of portholes similar to those used on ships? They would hold up to weather and if mounted low enough could still accommodate the shelves.

Nah that's a crazy idea. I bet Escape gets all kinds of crazy suggestions.

As I use my 17B large dinette as a bed, (and lounge), I have found that a body pillow under the window with another one for my back allows for comfort and no crushing of the shade when sitting next to the window.

We had front windows on our Scamp and 17B - didn't order it on the 21 and don't miss it.
Functionality aside, the off center position just looks lopsided to me .
