When I leave the front window open, even with the rock guard closed, I still get a substantial amount of water coming in the window so I have to leave it closed.

I have been thinking about getting a MaxFan cover, just haven't got there yet.

Were awning style windows a direct drop in, who is the manufacteur, do I have to order them from Escape.

Can I add an awning window to the rear of the trailer? It's a solid window now.

Last I heard, ETI wouldn't put an opening window in the back because dust and rain would be sucked into the trailer when traveling.
Don't know what you have for a roof vent, but my MaxxFan already has a rain cover.
I don't have air, but that's the MaxxFan on the roof.

Escape did them for us--but we live close to the factory...We also had the opening front window like Glenn and often had water coming in--so replaced it with a solid front window--hence wanting opening windows somewhere in the front...

I can only think that there must be a reason why Doug and Anna-Marie have had water enter the front window and I have not. Just don't have a clue what that may be.
I usually have the rock guard open half or two thirds. I don't open it as high as it can go, which might direct water toward the trailer. ( see picture one in post #2 ). I'll likely have the screen closed too.

There is nothing on the top of my rock guard to stop the water, just the extruded aluminum that the guard pivots on, no sealing mechanism.

It's dark now. I'll look at mine and shoot a picture tomorrow.

Right from our very first trip driving home Hwy 1 in the rain we had water coming in---multiple times on I-5----so we decided to change it out.... the cushions were often wet because we always seemed to camp in the rain...

(as I think will be this weekend---heading to Alice Lake for 4 days)have an electric site so have a cube heater and we will be fine....
