replacing frameless windows with framed windows

Hi, I was wondering if you can replace frameless windows with framed windows? Is the cutout for the window the same size?
Also, is it easy to replace the power awning with a manual awning?
Thanks for your help.

Both of these questions should be directed to the factory......

It is true that the factory is the definitive source for such information, but the OP might be thinking how busy they are and how broad this forum's knowledge base is and how helpful the people here are. It was worth asking here first.

I disagree in that the factory is always your best and first source of information, regardless of how busy they are as well as I'm not aware of any member switching their window style, perhaps there is a reason for this?

Thank you for the input. I was just wondering if one of my windows broke if I would be able to replace it with a framed window as I prefer framed windows. I have contacted the Escape office but have not heard back yet so thought all of the knowledge from escape members would be helpful and someone may have switched out a window in the past.

You may get the correct answer here, or you may get a best guess, or maybe the answer is correct, but not for your trailer, because ETI changed their specs, or the window manufacturer did.
But, since ETI wil not mix slider and awning windows, I suspect they are not easily interchangeable.
BTW, your avatar info is confusing me.

Just guessing again

If your frameless window ever broke, I would think it is possible to install, with possibly a lot of searching for an approximate size framed window, some effort, fiberglass trimming and other work to provide a new window.


You can do most anything, with a fat enough money account.


I wouldn't fret too much about shadows in the dark.
