We're requesting feedback from owner's of Carriage or Carri-Lite 5'er's who have the "Arizona Room" option. We love all the window's; my concern is water leaks. TIA.

Happy camping!!! See ya'll down the road!!!

Don't worry about water leaks worry about all of the glass transmitting heat and/or cold. In our Carriage we have the big bay window, our new one will not. All it does is let in the heat and let out the A/C.
If you want to see the view, step outside.

We already have the large rear bay window and side bay window in our current "HR Presidential" 5'er and we love the window's; we've never had a problem with keeping hot or cold. We want more window's thus our desire for the "Arizona Room" option in our next 5'er. We're asking for feedback from actual Carriage owners with the "Arizona Room" option.

Happy camping!!! See ya'll down the road!!!

I would speculate, though I could be wrong, that if the windows are the "dual pane"/"thermal pane" type windows, as in the HR, you shouldn't lose "as much" cooling BTU'S, and if the sun is beating down, wouldn't shades work? The windows may also have the dark tint that helps keep the heat out in the summertime, like the HR.

We have an '06 Carri-lite with this option. It came with a box awning that helps with the sun coming in. There is more cold transferred, even with dual pane. Most of the time the shades are drawn on them so they really don't offer much for the extra cost.
My wife says that in retrospect she would have been happier without the skylights. We are fulltime, and now visiting in Pa. for the holidays. Can't wait to leave for points south right after thanksgiving.

I'm with FiverBob... go the the Carriage forum, they have over 1000 members. BTW you can order the Arizona Room "without" the roof windows if you wish and still get all of the other windows.
Good Luck

It's called an Az room because of the skylights. Without them it is just another 5 slide 5'er.
