Good Morning Mike, we have these on our 8289. I like the looks of the windows and they are nice to keep the glare and heat from the sun down. The only complaint I have is they show the water spots pretty bad. I would opt for them again.

I have the 8289 with the windows. I really like them. They give you some added privacy too. HOWEVER, my rear window leaked. It had never been properly sealed at the top. Since this is a brand new unit, it should be fully covered under warranty. The dealership took a photo of it, and will replace the entire window. (I thought the would just seal the top of the existing window).

I have them on my Columbus. They are good looking windows and operate well. The only problem I had was when I first attempted to open them. They stuck. I had to get on the outside and apply pressure as DW cranked the knob. I sprayed the gaskets with silicone and they haven't stuck since.

I've wondered about these as well. Just a quick look while at the RV show and to me it doesn't look like they open up very wide. We currently have atrium windows and love all the fresh air the traditional windows allow to flow through the trailer. Is this the true case or is it operator error?

The flush mounts do not open very wide. They swing out maybe 4 inches (haven't measured) when looking at models that have them. They are coming with the Diamond package on our 8289WS along with the thermopane option.
