Frameless windows look great on an RV and they really cut down on maintenance, but they don’t let in a lot of fresh air. . .but can they?

Part of what we love about RVing is being in the outdoors. The crisp night air, the smell of Spring, catching a wisp of campfire smoke, or a cool breeze on a warm afternoon, it’s all a part of the RV and camping experience. We used to love Spring and Fall with our camper windows open, enjoying that fresh air. Unfortunately, frameless windows have made it a lot harder to let the outside in. Most brands are pretty much alike, but I’ll use our Montana 5th wheel as an example. The newer windows only crank out 4 inches, so the dual window here at my desk has a whopping 368 square inches of opening. The old-style sliding windows would have provided 720 square inches or nearly double.

So what can we do about it?
