to any one who has installed on of the Edwin Windows. I want to put one on my cargo/bunk door to get some air in there. Is there a screen? If not does it look like you could add one. And does it look like it could be rotated 90 degrees for installation?

Thanks

I have one of these windows in my door. It does have a screen, but it's setup to work up and down, not side to side. But the company who makes this windows makes different windows for different purposes.

The window dosn't come with a screen.Most are installed in the door of a motorhome or camper that have a screen door.

I see no reason that it can't be rotated and used that way.

There may be a screen that they make that will fit the person to ask is.

I think those windows are used throughout the camper as replacements. While you certainly could choose to utilize an opening window in the door, opening windows are probably offered because they might be placed anywhere in the camper, and often we wish those other windows to open... Just a guess.

They do look like an incredible upgrade...love the look of them.

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.


I thought I was the only one confused...I am not sure of the value of having a window that will open? If you have a screen door, most do, it won't really do much for ya. Wonder if they have one that doesn't open?

That said, I have always wondered why they even put windows on RV doors. You can't see out of them, and they don't put out enough light inside to make a difference, I prefer it darker to keep it cool inside since we usually camp in the summer.

The window does look far superior to the cheap ones already installed. I doubt I will replace mine as it still looks new but will save this for future use in case I never need to!

OK, I have had mine for a couple weeks now and I would never have another RV with the cheap leaky plastic bezel stock window again, if I could avoid it by having a quality product like this one!


That is nice to know.

I wonder if anyone is dis satified with their's. Or if they they all worked out for them.

I have the same issue after installing in the cargo door, as of a week or two ago they do not make a screen at this time, hopefully they will down the road, meanwhile i'm looking at local hardware store self making screen kit. will update when I come up with a fix
