Trailer with windows at both ends

So DH & I just love our little 2013 microlite 21 fbrs but have begun discussing what other features we would like that would make us change up. The one thing we both agree on is a window @ the front & the back as most campsites are set up for a great view that way.
Is Forest River making anything like that???

Rockwood 2306 has a non opening window on the front, head of the queen bed. It glows a gold colour on the inside when it's closed over the front end.




It also has a window in the bathroom, so you can have a look around while enjoying the go.


Not my pics/not my trailer, but I have one.

FR is putting the Murphy Bed in more and more models, it may actually be considered the standard bed model now,.... and I don't know of any trailers with both the MB and front window,.... it might be possible with a special order, but wouldn't count on it,....

When you say non-opening you mean the window does not open but you can see out the front if you lift that cover. Not a great view but a window out front.

The 2604WS has the same window in front (bedroom) and a full window out the back...

Just be sure you have plenty of wardrobe space. Usually there's a wardrobe at one end of the trailer. Our 3029W has a front walk in closet.

Haven't talked with many people that want a large window in the bedroom.
Good luck

Does it have a front window, which is what the OP wants.

Front Window

One of our priorities in searching for a new trailer was lots of windows, including a front window. We found very few manufacturers making trailers with a front window. We eventually found the Rockwood Signature UltraLight 8329ss. We love the floor plan and all the large windows. For the 2017 model they have changed the front cap enlarging the front window.

OP, this trailer has a large picture window in front and, as you see, huge windows in the living area.

Our Microlite 23LB has the window in the front and a window in the back in the bathroom. I love having both of them. This is our first TT after using a pop-up for 6 years. I loved having the open feeling with all the windows in the pop-up so I like being able to have more windows in the camper. It gives it a more open feeling when the front window cover is open.

I have a 2015 FR Ultra-Lite 2608WS and one of the main reasons I purchased this TT is because of the windows in the front and rear of the unit. As others have stated, my coach has a front kitchen and there is a large window that runs across the front of the TT. It does not open but the rock protector opens from the outside, giving me wonderful natural light and a view, when available. There is a pleated day/night shade over the inside of the window allowing me to close the shade for privacy. I also have a window over the bed at the rear of the TT that utilizes a day/night pleated shade as well. It is the emergency escape window and does push out when it is open. My main draw to the TT was the front and rear windows. I love the open feeling that windows allow when natural light comes in. My TT also has a skylight over the shower which sometimes allows too much light to come in so I made a removeable shade to cover the skylight as I deem appropriate.

Thanks for all the replies!
You can't tell what we have but the big window in front was one of the main reasons we bought 21 FBRS Micro lite as I can be mildly claustrophobic. Now that we have been camping in many beautiful places we know we want to have a large view out the back as well ...
Looked on the Montana site & could not find a fiver with a front window
Love the windows on the Rockwoods

Sure wish published floorplans were easier to evaluate for windows .....

Our Flagstaff 29KSWS Super lite has the non-opening front bedroom window and a large opening widow in the back. That was a big must have for us.
