Yup! Getting one. For the view (always wanted a bathroom with a view!) and the airflow...
Thanks for all the input everyone!

I love the bath light for the daylight it lets in and the odd time you need the venting. For most trailer venting using the MaxxFan, we use either the dinette window/s if we are inside, or the bed area window/s if sleeping.

I hear the same things from people who've never owned a trailer with a flushable toilet.
This is so true with many things that folks put down yet have never used, not that there really is one that is right for all.

I keep the bathroom window open all of the time during camping. If it is dusty the bathroom gets most of it and I can shower everything down. I put no see'um netting in the screen and if there are a lot of gnats it is the only window I keep open.

Absolutely! And while you're sitting there contemplating your navel (er, ah, whatever), you can peek out to goings on in the campground!

We have the 21í Escape. We decided not to get the bathroom window especially since it is a small space. Iím glad we didnít spend the money. The push up air vent and fan work just fine for us!

Got it. Worth it. Would get it again.

Also got the kitchen window. It's nice, and would probably get it again, but we cook more outside than I'd anticipated, and nobody in their right mind generates a lot of dishes when camping, so less time at the sink. All in all, the kitchen window is nice to have, but if I had to chose between a bathroom and a kitchen window, I'd go with the bathroom window.

We've got one, and I would consider it a waste of money. I much prefer our window in the kitchen.

My choice would be the kitchen window.
First of all the kitchen window looks out on your own camping spot.
Second the kitchen window adds a lot of light in the counter area.
Third the kitchen window combined with the maxx fan create a nice air flow in the living area
For the bathroom window: a lot of people forget that at night the neighbor totally is able to follow your silhouette when using the bathroom with the light on.

Fortunately, you don't have to choose between a kitchen or bath window. And at night the neighbor can totally see my silhouette while I pee outside.

Just saw this about the bath window and I was worried about it . We bought from little house customs a real nice bath curtain . It can get wet and installs in the window frame . I donít know where you can get it now because I donít think Little house customs is around . Maybe if not true someone knows . Pat

I'm in the minority that did not get the bathroom window. Had one in my previous RV that I never used in 13 years.

Glad it is not standard feature on Escape trailers as we had zero interest in a window in an RV bathroom.

Different strokes for different folks I suppose, with bathroom windows and the many other options ETI blesses us with

Yes, Little House Customs is still around. When Larry Gamble retired, he only retired from modifications and repairs. He still has the store: https://littlehousecustoms.com/


The modification/repairs are now being done by Little Home On The Road: https://littlehomeontheroad.com/

Good to know Donna ! A picture of curtain . The most useful reason besides light in bath is opening window and being able to pass hose through to clean black tank . Pat
