Adding Bathroom Window to 21DBS...Thoughts?

There's a perfect space between the bathroom cabinet and the shower for a window. Getting fresh air and light in there would be nice.

Has anyone added a window to their trailer without issues? I'm sure ordering a window would be a breeze, but install?

The only negative as far as I can tell is that the "Mountain Series" decal would either be halved, or have to be removed.

There is a thread in ther travel trailer section covering aging a window. You will have to search for it.

I would contact ORV first to see if they will send you a printout of the framing of that side. Might be electrical or water lines behind the wall.

Doable if your handy and have experience framing and sealing. Roof loads are carried down the wall framing for support.

Let us know how it goes if you do it.

May be worthwhile to compare the addition of a window with the add of a 14 X 14 opening roof vent / fan (if not there already). In our model WBGO a number of owners are adding vents for light and air.

I second the roof vent/fan.
Let in light and also have ventilation to get the moist air after a shower out.
Done properly, it might never leak.
Some people have insulating inserts to stuff into ceiling vents for cold weather. Also we have friends that block the light out on all the vents! I still can't figure that one out, my old eyes need lots of light.
Happy Glamping.

Thank you - already have a Maxx Air vent/fan in there. I just feel like you can never have enough air/light, especially when it's military shower night for all 5.

Lots of good memories about mil showers - kids still laugh about those days!
