We just leave the door open most of the time and have the screen door closed. I have 1/8" clear acrylic sheet covering the screen door. It's attached with velcro so I can easlily remove it but I almost never do. It makes the screen door into a storm door. I just leave the door open and the screen closed and run the heat or A/C as desired.

I believe Lazy Daze motor homes tend to have bigger windows than most; however, their windows are very darkly tinted which seriously negates their size in my opinion.

These are great suggestions! I am encouraged .. I am particularly intrigued by the BT Cruisers and the Lazy Daze. At least I know there are possibilities. Yes, I want a dinette or a couch on the same side as the door and I am a happy camper!

Being hot is a non-issue for me. In 34 years of RV camping, I think I have used the air conditioner maybe twice. A few other times to clear moisture out.

OK, I need to go check out Itasca now.

Thanks!
p.s. Can someone teach me how to reply to a message right in the forum. I find instructions for how to post a private message, but not how to say "thanks" to individual postings. Which is why you are receiving this mass-thank-you!

I will attempt to explain, I may not be the best teacher so bear with me.

If you wanted to reply something that someone posted specifically, you could click 'Quote'
located on top of the posted msg. Link/Quote/Print/Notify Moderator/
a copy of that post will appear and you reply to it specifically.

You could also highlight part of what was posted and 'copy' it then use the 'Reply to Topic' once you do that you can paste the copied portion of the quote by using the icons with the quotation marks. typing in the poster tag/name is optional. Most people are not that old that we can't remember what we just said although our wives or partners will probably disagree with that.

Well, I do appreciate your encouragement! First morning out and I found and bought an RV that met all my criteria .... a 2018 Leprechaun! How great!

In the 21-24 foot lengths, the only way I know of to have big windows on both sides of the living room, is to have a couch on one side and a dinette on the other side, keeping in-mind that your permanent bed is the cab-over bunk. For many of us older folks, we need to sleep on the main floor. In a 21-24 foot length, that means the need to convert the living room into a bedroom (then back again) daily.....or live in a bedroom as we did with our first motor home which was not good.

We replaced that rig with our current one SEEN HERE which measures 23'-8" long end-to-end, a B+ with a permanent main floor double bed. We don't have a slide out so the driver-side has a nice size window. The passenger side does not. As others have mentioned, we open the door often to get the open-feel.

Having the extra captain seat is a reasonable compromise instead a couch to keep the rig short. We could have paid more for a window by that captain seat, but the seat itself would have covered it. Here is a stock photo of what it might have looked like, but this has the uncomfortable low back barrel seat that we replaced with the comfortable captain seat.

As a practical matter, small RV's have smaller real estate available for windows. Take the surface area of a small RV and start subtracting for bathrooms, storage, refrigerators, beds, dinette, sink cabinets, overhead storage bins, stove, door, structural framing, etc and you end up with not that much space for windows.

At times, the amount of window square footage really isn't as critical as the amount of light coming in or the view itself. A smaller window overlooking the river, mountain and tress is more fulfilling than a large picture window looking out at someones black tank hose and RV side.

Ah yes, but after four trailers and one small motorhome without this problem,I knew I could prevail! Found a Leprechaun on my first foray out that met the bill beautifully. I need to be able to paint from the dinette if the weather isn’t cooperating.
