The 17b has an emergency egress window on the drivers side.

I doubt ETI can find an opening double insulated escape window that large for the back and still keep the package upgrade at the cost where it is now. In addition the escape window does not have cleaning holes like the conventional windows do so that could be another reason for it's size limitation.

never in doubt, often wrong

Think NASCAR. Those cars driving two inches from the rear of the car in front are drafting, saving fuel by being sucked along in the vacuum created by the lead vehicle.
That vacuum also sucks dust and rain.

Does anyone know what series (presumably of Hehr windows) Escape is currently using? Hehr has lots of information about sizes and configurations available online.

No, I don't have any info for Hehr, but since ETI is a Canadian company... maybe some or all their windows come from: RV Windows by Sun-View Industries

Almost EXACTLY the same (US side) Hehr windows.

Maybe check with ETI ??

Good point, Donna. Unfortunately, Sun-View doesn't offer a catalog - or any useful information - online.

The idea was just to see what products might be available that might be desirable for individual preferences. I've had a pretty good look at several Escapes, but don't have one in the driveway... thus I was wondering if someone could read the markings on one of their windows (which usually include the manufacturer and perhaps some indication of the product series). I just needed to look a little more: in Cleaning Window Glass, Paul and Janet report having at least one 5600 series Hehr window, and other discussion mentions Hehr... and since I started writing this, Karen has confirmed the use of Hehr (thanks Karen ).

I would look at the details on the Hehr page, but it appears to be the outdated garbage web site from hell, so it won't load properly on this computer, and I am giving up for now.

My 19 has the Hehr emergency exit window, street side rear. Thought it was a standard install. They are the best... and their prices confirm it.
