On my 17B, opening the rock guard is one of the first things I do. We sit at the front two-person dinette. Window lets in light and air, rock guard keeps the rain off the window and out of the trailer ( front window on mine opens ).

Just like the u-shaped dinette(which we chose), all a matter of feel and taste. That's what makes the Escape different-choices.

Please post some pictures of the headboard, maybe a first here.

Exactly right. Some folks are going to want the window, others will prefer the shelf. And I think that is exactly the way it ought to be. It is just like the U-shaped dinette. But the wonderful thing is that Escape is able to accommodate all these different preferences.

JIm,

We are going out with the trailer tomorrow, will try to get some good pics. We did the headboard in same material as our dinette. Attached it to the board under mattress.

Since we had the window ,if we watched TV in the bed my side hit the window. It gives me something to lean against. Turned out nice and we are happy .

I couldn't imagine not having a window over our head. We have ours open most of the time while we sleep, loving the fresh air over our faces. We both love cool sleeping temps, especially if the air is fresh, all while we snuggle on our comfy new mattress, while buried in a layer of cozy bedding.

Outside temps were near freezing last night, and my only issue with the window open was that I think I may need a nightcap to cover my bare skull.

Jim, I don't think the front window in the 21 opens. But the one on the side does. I am with you on the cool sleeping temps idea.
