Window do limit the air flow, but do work well. I am also planning to shorten the spacer in the rail to allow them to open wider. I figure they will go out to about 45 degrees when fully open. The crank mechanism is easier to use than using the conventional sliding windows which sometimes need two hands to work, either the horizontal or vertical ones. Mine have not leaked and are great when it rains.

I have the bonded frameless windows on our Windjammer Diamond package. Love them. We just took delivery this past March, and so far most of our trips have been during hot weather. With two little guys, our AC has been getting more use than the fresh air through the windows. I have opened a few and fired up the fantastic fans a few times while parked on my lawn, and I gotta say, I felt some nice airflow!

We have two fans (bath- and living rooms) and they pull some air from those windows.
All options are trade offs. I like being able to leave the trailer windows open when we leave for a few hours and T-storms are forecast. That's why we have vent covers on all our roof vents, too. Since they stopped using jalousie windows (We had them on our Sunline.), these are the next best thing for rainy day ventilation.

We just got our 8315bss and also like the looks of the windows, I applied rain x to the windows and it seems to cure the water spot problem

Were going to pick up our '14 Windjammer (diamond) 2809 tomorrow. I have to say we're pretty excited! How do you like yours? Any helpful comments? Thanks in advance!

That's great!!! Congrats and enjoy! We had to wait all winter to get ours. We ordered last October and picked it up on St Pattys Day this year.

We love our Jammer. It truly is our home away from home!!

Comments? Not really. Just pay attention during your walk through, ask lots of questions, and take notes!

Happy travels!

I did find a checklist that I'll go over & add things as I think of them before we go! Thanks for the input. There doesn't seem to be too many Jammers out there, but we'd like to think its because its the best kept secret!

You are correct. But some parts of the Country, they can't keep them on the lot! I'm from Upstate NY and I've only seen one in a campground out this way.

You guys have the Flagstaff twin of our baby, it appears. We love 'er, and she truly *is* home away from home.

We keep 'er in the back yard, and DH just said this week "it looks like she grows a foot every time I walk out here!"

I'm sittin' on ready, rockin' on geaux! We're scheduled to pull out in the wee morning hours of next Friday, headin' for TN! HERE Pigeon Forge RV- Up the Creek RV Camp, Pigeon Forge, Gatlinburg, Smoky Mountainsto be exact...it'll be home base for the NASCAR Richmond race, and other points all around that area. This will be our first long haul trip. We've only had 'er since the week following Memorial Day weekend and this will be our fifth trip.

We *love* the bonded windows and thanks for the tip re RainX! Might do that this evening.

We don't see a lot of V-Lites either....I concur...best kept secret!
