Hmmm... less than the span of my hand... but not sure exactly. Probably more than 2 inches though!

What windows do you have?

I might have to photoshop this onto the side of the van (if I could find any real info about it ... all I know is that the person who took the photo has nice chairs and doesn't know anything about taking product photos with reflection )

Not sure if you've seen these.

BTW, I totally dig Ford's factory customs, from the 70's.

No pics handy here, but they're like the one pictured here, the big square-ish one at the back, half bottom opens. http://www.floridarvdeals.com/node/2
It might be too big for you though... Don't know what shape will look right next to that big side window you already have. Maybe a rectangular one would not look too out of whack, although Hayduke might be right on the porthole

Unfortunately those are the CRL windows I referenced in the first post - for the passenger rear 144" they don't make an opening window due to the slider (they used to.. but they stopped ).

Boat portholes are a good idea, if you find one the right shape as they open inwards rather than outwards, so you should have no interference with the door.

the plot thickens!

I've been trying to find a passenger side rear window that opens for a 144" NCV3.
CR Laurence (who makes the nice seamless awning windows that look factory) doesn't make them - due to "sliding door collisions". I just found a photo of a new Road Trek SS-Agile 144 and it has a rear-awning window on the passenger side!





Time to call Roadtrek in Canada and see if they'll sell me one...

They have "replacements available" - but I need the last 8 digits of an SS-Agile's VIN.


If anyone see's an SS-Agile for sale - do me a favor and write down it's VIN number
