I was going to replace the frosted glass in the door with tinted glass and a new plastic frame, but with the cost of the glass and frame plus shipping I could, for a few bucks more I get this neat window that opens and doesn't have a cheap plastic frame that has to be replaced every few years and it matches the rest of the windows in the RV.

This is the best replacement window yet, the EDWIN by Atwood.
At Easy Windows

Why didn't the MFG put these in to begin with? Instead of the cheezy plastic rimed things?

Privacy glass and it opens, easy install as shown here and looks just like the rest of the windows in the MH.

The frames come in black or white.

(on edit see mine on page 4)

Brilliant! I have spent $150 on worse things... Would need a shade for that one, so add another $20 for the basic one.

I hated the old outdated cheap junk standard door window so much that I had it deleted so that door didn't have any window.......couldn't see out the dang things anyway and 'no window' doesn't leak

Might look into this window.
Thanks for the link!

EDWIN solves a problem I didn't know I had for the last 8 years.

My trailer came without a window in the door. I saw the Edwin and was sold. Exactley what I was looking for. Installation was a breeze and I am very happy with it.

I don't get the "slider window" part. I have a screen door. There's no easy access to the slider when both doors are closed. The privacy tinting is great - BUT - does it block the heat from the sun? I have reflective foil permanently velcro'd to the window. I think I'd rather have an entry camera over the door with a monitor inside AND no window at all.

it solves a non-problem that I have had for the last 20 years. you have to open the door, step out and open the window then close the screen door and the main door? logistically sort of ??? then when you want to close the window, have to open door and go outside again?

My best curtain solution was to get a strip of fridge magnet from the stationary store. One strip I mounted on the top of the door, the other strip I sewed into the material for the curtain. I wanted it on, click, off, unclick and rool, place either above or behind seat.

In my case it helped in several ways. I had no window in the door so that itself is a plus. It lightened it up big time. I hate the obscure glass on most door windows. With the tinted glass on the Edwin I am able to see out of it. I have the ability to open it and get some more ventilation. Even though you have to open the screen door first to open the slider, it is really nice. Really not a big deal if you can walk and chew gum at the same time!
