We like the one on our 3820FK. Let's us look out the window while having breakfast. It is work to keep it clean from the bugs but I would rather do that than have that much surface possibly fading someday on a cap without a window.

I can see where a front kitchen floor plan might make sense for the window. It doesn’t work as well for a front living room layout

The front window is the same as your truck windshield, so just as tough

The bugs come off the glass better than off the fiberglass. With the couch under the window inside makes it a very relaxing Master Suite

Yep I could see that for the front bedroom layout too. But not so much for front living room with TV in that space

Saw that trailer life cover ...looks like the" winterfronts" we used on our big trucks in cold country. Sure was nice on my cabover Kenworths back then.

Sorry to hear about the broken window...but will be interesting in hearing how it gets taken care of , who, how much ....hope it is shared so we can all learn.

Still working on our plan of a Sunbrella canvas with padding and easy on ,off twist snaps.

Bet that when the TV is in the front the black is only painted on the outside

Just FYI, when we bought our 3810 last year, there was another one on the lot that had a cracked front window. I was told it had been damaged "in transit" across the country, rock or something. I asked the service manager what it was made of, and what it cost to replace? He said it was the same material as an automotive windshield (laminated safety glass) and that the cost of the window wasn't too bad, $600.00. He said the worst of it was the shipping, which was almost as costly as the window, due to it's size and shape. Labor wise it was a couple hundred bucks. As mentioned, insurance should take care of most if not all of that.

we love ours in a 381th, you get lots of light & a great view. After reading this thread I checked with our insurance company & its covered should it get damaged. We also have an 05 alfa toyhouse with the flip up front cap & large bedroom window, the difference is it is a regular camper window & it opens for ventilation.
