Sure like the option...well worth the extra cost!
I covet those vinyl windows. I do wish Forest River would offer that as an option. Or maybe even standard? Even if they only put it on the end, I'd be very happy.

Someone suggested that FR might not do that because the end panel is the fire escape. Okay, so why not put the vinyl on the side windows? At least it would let some light in an otherwise very dark cabin.

That is my understanding also. Was that $1,300 per bunk end? So are we talking $3,900 if one has a canvas slide out also.

No hybrid manufacturer, not just FR, has ever had vinyl windows on their tent ends.

That sounds like a marketing opportunity to me.

When I look at the EXIT sign on the canvas of a pop up or HTT, it always appeared to me that the exit was thru the zipper and not the screening.

I suspect it is more of a condensation thing for the reason as to why they do not install vinyl on the bunk ends. FR actually changed the tenting on the side panels to canvas and not the typical coated tenting like all the other material.

The fire escape idea was someone else's. Condensation may be a reason. Perhaps it's not such an issue in popups because they have more breathable surface area?

Good job on the install.

How well do the vinyl windows fold and scrunch up when closing the end? Any risk of them creasing or splitting?

The price I payed was for two bunk ends with vinyl windows ($1,300)
