These windows might not be safe replacements for an "escape" window. However, I recently saw a new trailer with screened escape windows which were still hinged on top but had a lever to tilt out the bottom. I forgot the trailer brand, but maybe somebody else knows it?
Until I can locate a suitable replacement, I use a paint mixing stick to prop the window open and a car window shade screen to keep out the bugs.
Specifically, does anyone have a solution to filling in the "v" between the cushions when folded out? We went to a bedding store but all they had was flimsy foam pads for putting between two regular beds. Any thoughts?
I think the real issue is whether slides are worth the extra money and weight, not to mention accessibility, when traveling. The seem to be trouble free for the past few years, but I would be wary of older units, especially with front or rear slides.
Subject to affordability, pick the largest tt your tv can handle, subject to length restrictions at some parks. That is how we came up with our Skyline 247 Ltd. Queen bed up front, double bed with single bunk over it, bath w/tub, dinette and couch. Will sleep 3 adults & 3 kids w/o needing to breakdown dinette or couch (4+4 max). 25/28 loa with 6200# gvwr. Haven't seen anything else like it for the same weight, length & gvwr. No slide.
