Also, the current mattress that sucks is about 4" thick ... so it just sits a little higher than the windows. I'm 5'11 and I can sit up with no problem in the middle.

Re: MegaBus project

@Stuff

I couldn't agree more, that was the window the door came with, I haggled an RV dealer down to $75 for the entire door, and I don't think it was ever installed, it just had some minor dents in the bottom of the frame. Anyhow a replacement clear saftey glass is the next order of business. I am also considering adding another window toward the bottom of the door for added visibility.

Thanks!
