Sabre QBOK odd window placement

I'm surprised we didn't notice this sooner but we have dogs that like to bark at anything and everything so we keep our shades closed most of the time. Also we've only camped in our trailer half a dozen times since we just got it at the end of last year. It's something I just noticed a couple of weeks ago.

The little window that's just to the right side of the door in the picture essentially looks out directly into the outside wall of the bunkhouse slide. So it's kinda useless.



Are these slides built as a one-size-fits-all and put into different models?

On our Sabre 34REQS-6 we have a window in our couch slide out that looks out to the kitchen slide. I'm thinking less than 30"away. You can see it on the right side, 3rd slide back. As you can see the couch slide extends further that the kitchen slide so we do get some light/view.

The windows on the other side make up for it though.

Yes, it is mostly pointless. The rarity that it is useful is when we're at truck stops or rest areas and have opened the main slide but not the bunkhouse slides.

I do think that it does let in light since it's all white.

AND finally to answer your actual question -- no, I don't think these slides are one size fits all. I think they're made to fit the actual model. But I'm not positive on that.

That is the NYC Apartment Floor Plan...solid brick on the slide wall facing the window optional (but not recommended).

Standard slide box but on this model with bunk slide makes redundant. It does let in light though. Looks great on non- rear slide models.

Maybe I'll get my daughter to draw something on the wall so we have something to look at.

Maybe the prime intention is air circulation...

It still lets in a fair amount of airflow and light. We don't even put the rear slides out without the kids so the window is useful then.
