We got the opening kitchen and bath and most of the time the kitchen is the window we leave open at night. Actually it is open almost anytime we are camping regardless of weather. Never even thought about getting the shade wet. It would be hard to do.

Don't know about the newer trailers, but obn ours the sink window is the only one that is covered if it rains, as long as the awning is at least part way open. Makes for good flow thru with the maxxfan.

I can't post a pic (yes, I'm one of the "idiots" who posts online that I'm out camping), but don't forget how much light is lost in getting a screened (opening) window versus a non-screened one. I think there is a comparison pic in my profile album somewhere. Just another consideration...

We have the opening version. While I agree the screen cuts vision and some of the light as one would expect, the benefits of having it open out weight the screens intrusion, at least for us. We did not get the stove vent hood so we use the window and fan for moisture control for the times we get stuck cooking inside.

I love this forum; you guys are great! Even though I am a messy dishwasher, I rarely cook, so it isn't a huge problem. If you don't get the stove fan, what goes in that spot? Mrs. T

Same for us ,the ventilation is important to us even though we have the stove hood . The kitchen and bath windows are our favorites in whole trailer . Our bath slides up and down ,great for passing hose if needed to flush black tank also . kitchen is awning but not the new awning window . Pat

Okay, we are getting the opened kitchen window.

Two more questions.
In our bed at home, we had to cut holes in the plywood base of our bed to keep it from mildewing under the mattress. We are thinking that venting is good. If we have vents added to the closed parts of the Escape 19, where should we put them?

We saw some posts that recommended adding a light above the dinette to help prevent headliner sagging. Is that a good idea?

Some of the folks use a venting layer under the mattress to keep condensation from happening under and around it. If that's your concern it may work better then holes in the plywood. I forget the name of the product.

There are also folks who have put small vents in the under bed storage to keep that area vented. 2 different purposes.

We have a light over the table but it's not a 19, I use it for light purposes but I guess an added benny is helping to hold up the headliner, never really thought about it.
