Installing larger windows in bedroom of 5th wheel

my 2017 Primetime crusader lite 5th wheel came with some of the smallest windows ever in the bedroom.

I would like to order new larger windows to replace the smaller windows

The question I have is, has anyone done this before, and if so what is the difficulty level.

2nd question, will it compromise structural integrity of the 5th wheel in any way?

regards,

Mike

IMHO, it may. The sidewalls are constructed out of a welded aluminum frame with laminated, insulated & bonded interior & exterior walls (see your factory sticker near the entry door). If you start cutting into the walls you may run into aluminum studs and crossmembers which if cut out, would weaken the rigidity of the walls and possibly lead to delamination due to wall flex.
