21' Escape

Do any of the 21' Escape owners miss the front window?

You can never miss what you've never had.

If folks are moving from a Casita to an Escape 21'... they wouldn't miss the front window since most Casitas don't have them either.

I had a front window in our 17B... Don't miss it with the 21. There are plenty of opening windows for ventilation & we don't stand there wishing we could see out.

I doubt I will miss ours. Almost always the great view is to the back of the trailer. We just opened the front one to let more light in.

I'm glad it is gone, my bed and trailer is warmer without one. Plus the shelf is very useful.

We like our front window also-one of our friends has a 19ft. He ordered a 21 after he saw our window. He had seen one without the window and didn't like the feel. I think the more light the better! We made a headboard to go behind the bed for a more finished look, so don't miss the shelf.

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

The only time we opened the rock guard on the 19 was to clean the window when washing the trailer. We are not getting one on the 21 and don't suspect we will miss it .

Of course you're referring to a 19 and not a 21, but this is still proof of what many have said here: It's a matter of personal taste. I will most likely leave my rock guard up constantly, unless there's a bad storm or the trailer is in storage. I love the light and the view.
