Door window switchout

Has anyone replaced a window in his trailer entry door with one that opens?

I have never even seen one. The glass would have to be framed in, then it wouldn't fit. t
The glass is only sandwiched in between the out side frame and inside. I guess you could buy one framed in already but it would still have to be the thickness of the door with the the outside trim and inside with new trim. Probably better and cheaper to just open the door and use the screen.

Not sure why the photos are on their side?

I've never seen that one before. Does it have a screen on the outside, too?

I installed this same window on my last travel trailer. It was a piece of cake to install.
