Probably related to the Do Not Leave The Toilet Seat Up rule somehow..............

I've also been thinking about this with my new 17B. I think I'll go with the cheaper non-thermal. My though is that it shouldn't really keep the trailer any cooler, as the bathroom door will usually be closed, and also (as someone mentioned), it is a wet bath so a few drops of rain shouldn't hurt. I try not to camp in typhoons! 😆

If you're going for the new frameless windows it would look odd to have a non-frameless anywhere IMO.

I know for $100 more, this would most definitely be my choice. Things need to be matchy matchy.

No awning, no tires, no windows, you are becoming just an empty shell.

Oh wait, you mean no window in the bath, not the entire trailer. We did that too (not like we had an option then).

The thermal does a better job in the winter in keeping the bath warmer, if that is possible.

Do both types of (or either) windows open completely to the outside (sliding screen) to allow for a hose and wand to pass through for rinsing the toilet? Realizing this fun task could be accomplished by going through the main entry (only entry for that matter) door, it is pretty convenient and potentially less wet, to pass it through the bathroom window.

The screen on the single pane slider opens to feed a hose through the bathroom window.

Usually the services are on the bathroom side and it's convenient to pass the hose straight in. With the slider it's easy to do. Having to drag the hose around to the door and pass it through the trailer would be less convenient.

At the risk of mentioning one other feature no one else has mentioned, when using the facilities it's possible to observe the outside world. I'm not sure if you can easily see out of the awning type window. Probably I'm the only one in the whole world that uses that feature.
