Why can't I find this in a TT style

The places we go lots of times have back in parking with a view of a lake of mountains of something nice to see OUT THE BACK of the TT.
Why are all TTs made with the big windows looking out front at the back of our truck?
Seems odd when you look at what is available in 5th wheels that we don't want.
I'd want a front bath-rear bedroom set up. Why can't I find one?
Just starting to look for a new or "newer" rig. 18' to 24' BOX.

I was told by one dealer to put a hitch socket on the back of a TT and then unhook from towing, go around the back with the truck and hook up to that ball and "push" the TT into the spot so the forward facing big windows would be looking at the lake. Hmmmmm!

Wow, that suggestion sounds a bit unrealistic. What do you think about toy haulers?
I've learned to appreciate the garage area's flexibility to use it any way you can imagine.
I've had company, family use it with the ramp down and screen down to sleep in an outdoor type atmosphere.
When not used to carry bikes or other toys, it serves well for additional storage.

I just looked closer to your first post, a front window is what you're looking for.

Disregard my suggestion

While TT shopping we found a few that had rear windows with two recliners just like a fifth. Cougar and Heritage Glen are two that come to mind. You just need to find the right model.

Here ya go

look for a used rear bed 25, 27, 28, 30 footer.

I agree with you that most tt's and most rv's for that matter, have pretty terrible window setups. I like my wrap around windows at each end.

Cliffy most manufacturers make rear lounge TT. We just bought a Rear Lounge Forest River Surveyor 302 it was a seldom used 2010 model, and we love it

I like the Airstream style windows also but the DW doesn't like ASs
OH well I'll keep looking at the ideas above.

Our Grey Wolf 26RL rear living has a large picture window across the back end with the rocker chairs there. Never have done it, but, you could turn them around faceng the window.Also side windows next to each chair. That's why i insisted on rear living.

Not sure what length or price range you're looking for but most of the TTs we looked at had one. We settled on a Keystone Bullet Premier 30RIPR which has a large window looking out the rear.

We looked at Rockwoods, both the signature ultra lite and the V-Nose.

The V-Nose actually has a nice front bathroom model with a huge bathroom (double sinks) and a large rear window in the back where the living room is.

I wish there was a way to switch things around about 50% of the time. When we are backed up to a beach, yes, I want a large rear window. The other 50% of the time, we are backed up to another persons trailer and am glad we have a window shade to block them out.

My question is where are the floor plans with the kitchen on the slide-out on the drivers side and the dinette and couch on the passenger side? I am always parked near people and my slide-out is in the neighbors camp looking right at them and sometimes feel like I am in their conversation. I feel bad when I have to close my windows because I don't want to be so close to them. Other times, I am closing my windows so I am not getting the second hand smoke from the neighbors. With a reverse floor plan, only the small kitchen window would be in that spot and my larger windows would be in my own campsite. I know people are going to say it is the weight of the kitchen, but I also know there are some really heavy duty slides out there that can accomplish this.
