It's not like they cover the whole window, they are 8" wide, but I do get your point.

You could use Cpaharley's idea, and leave the stove vent open.

Bob, before you make the investment, find out if you can view a trailer that has them. Even a sticky on a dealers lot! Or, if you do buy them, duct tape them to the window and determine if you can live with the permanently distorted view.

I'll do that. My only concern was they are ugly, hadn't thought about the view.

Ugly... I agree, but didn't want to say that. ICK.

Our solution to the "window open in the rain" issue was: opening window over the sink (under the awning) and in the bathroom (wet doesn't matter). Those are the two windows we (almost) always leave open.

We open the window in the bathroom and the max fan since it has a cover and water doesn't get it easily. We have the DryMesh under the bed but that was just a pre-emptive measure. We have not experienced condensation in the trailer but we mostly camp in the dry SW. even though the humidity is low, this area does experience hot days with much cooler nights (30 to 40 degree day to night temp drop is common) which might encourage condensation.

Has anyone been successful ordering drymesh for USA delivery recently? If so how?

Hi Carl,
I tried contacting Drymesh twice and they never return my calls I wounded if they are still in business. I would have are hard time want to purchase some thing from a company that can't even your you calls.

Hypervent then...

Probably go with Hypervent then. The Drymesh fit the 21' bed better. Hypervent will have to be in two pieces, but at least it is a reputable source here in the US.

We used Hypervent in our 17 and now Drymesh in our 21.
If I ever buy another, it will be Hypervent....it stiffer and stays in place better. You can just tape the pieces together with a fabric tape.
