21 Front Window option


We’re finalizing our build sheet and did not opt for the additional front window with the rock shield. I was just wondering if anyone regretted not adding this option. Thanks so much!

We did not go for the front window.Like that clean look at the front.But on the other hand the trailer will be a little darker inside.
We like it that way, happy we did not get the window since it is also off center.

Sorry I can’t help you much with your question as we have a 19, but I know some like the shelf that goes there at the head of the bed.
But I do want to say welcome and hope to see you at the Escape Appreciation Rally in May.

So many modifications...so little time.

We also did not add this option and do not miss it. Fewer holes in the shell, a better appearance, and the shelf is very useful. We are currently working on a padded headboard under the shelf for a bit more tailored appearance.

Personally, I think it looks a little strange outside, since it is off center and the shelf inside is indispensable.
Never in doubt, often wrong.....

One advantage often mentioned for the 19 is that you can see out all four directions. The front window in the 21 allows this. We love the extra natural lighting, and the view in all four directions. Just our experience, though.

We attended a rally where there were 9 E 21s. Seven did not have the window and two did. One was ours. It came with the Escape when we bought it from the original owners. We do not have the shelf inside but we really like the extra light we get from the window during the day , especially when it’s cloudy. We don’t mind the off center positioning due to the bathroom. We are form follows function people so lack of perfect symmetry does not bother me at all. Personally if I were getting a new 21 I’d get the window. The rock guard only takes a minute to open or close.

Strike while the iron is hot. Live every day as if it were your last and one day you will be right.

We have the window in our 21, one of the first options we selected. The extra light is much appreciated. The off-center look adds character.

If I was getting a 21 I would get the window. The shelf is an easy workaround and any extra light (and view) would be welcomed.

I you have one you can always close it if you want, but.......
