I special ordered the camper with no roof windows, I`m sure it`s not for everyone
but thats how I wanted the camper configured. It was nice that they custom built the camper the way I wanted.
I pasted a few post about the windows from other threads;
I have owned my A122 for about 3 years and have been very happy with the camper, but the bubble window developed cracks shortly after delivery, which resulted in the window being replaced and 3 M taped.
My window has been trouble free since the fix, but I have seen numerous threads about this issues.
The bubble window also has to be re-caulked on a regular basis, which is just another maintenance item to address . I see no purpose to the windows except as a potential leak or repair issue. The side windows allow plenty of light into the camper and I always have the shade pulled down so there really is no extra room created by the raised bubble window and I have never stuck my head into the recessed area. I do not spend a lot of time in the camper during daylight hours and mainly use it has a dry and safe place to sleep or watch an occasional movie. I have never used the dinette table, it stays down as a bed.
I would love to see FR offer the option of no roof windows
, which would significantly reduce the amount of leak, repair and maintenance issues.
I am special ordering the camper with no bubble windows on the roof panels, just the roof vent/fan.
I just have no use or need for the roof windows and I know this after 3.5 years of camping in my A122.
