mini Lite 2306 Storm Windows Option - Not Happy

I finally got my trailer today and I had it ordered with the storm window option just in-case I decided to travel to snow it would help keep the heat in - I figured the storm windows were double pain windows - wrong - it is a piece of glass or plexy glass that cover's the whole window

whom ever engineered the storm window option should be shot cause it make's the window un-usable the only window that doesn't get the plexy glass cover is the Emergency Exit Window

Looks like I am going to be calling the factory about some sort of a resolution since I did order it with this option not realizing it rendered the windows useless except to look out of.

On a positive note - if you live in a High Crime area and want to protect your trailer from break in's thru the windows feel free to order the Storm Window Option

Wow

Wow.. That is crazy. Would have thought that the windows would be able to open -- like a double pane window in a residence.

Double pane windows in Florida - of all places though???

How do you like your 2306??? post photos!!!

See you around the camp fire!

I will have to get pictures of the pane tommorow - it covers the whole window

Double pane windows in Florida work as a barrier to the heat as the same with the cold -

I just got it today so havent camped in it yet but will be soon - so far so good and my daughter loves it - the look and reaction on her face was priceless

Conngrats, Sherdep. I won't pick up my 2306 for three more weeks. I am very ready for winter to end so I can get out of doors again and hit the road. It's been a long winter, and I'm tired of working inside. That said, if this is all I have to complain about, then life is good. And it is.

We bought the storm window option for our 2011 2902SS. None of the storm windows fit and Forest River refunded out money, with an apology. The instructions to install the storm windows were 1) remove window treatments and shades, 2) remove knob, 3) screw storm windows to window frame. After doing all that they still would not fit, the knob shaft would hit the window.

It is hard to see the storm windows cause they are clear like glass
I put my hand on the storm window so you could see I couldnt touch the latches to open the windows

The storm window is a black frame with what I think is Clear Plexy glass attached to the black frame - havent called the factory as of yet cause got busy at work and forgot to look up the number to call

also forgot to mention that overall I do love the camper - just not happy about the storm window option - figured I would be able to use the windows - live and learn i guess - since I am florida most do not order this option but I wanted to be prepared in case I ever go to the snow it will keep warm in the winter and cold in the summer

Thanks for the photos. Are you able to get a 'breeze' with these double pane windows???

It is difficult to see in photos but looks like a sheet of plexi over the window.
