Very impressed! I found you on Youtube and watched all your videos now following this thread. Love the window. When I build mine (don't even have a bus yet) I am stealing this idea! I always liked the Scenicruiser windows! Is there a reason to install upside down? So the hot air escapes straight up instead of down around and up? If you could open it while driving it would just funnel all the air inside the bus almost like a parachute! lol Again very awesome work as always!

Awesome...Thanks for watching the videos! Yes sir....Im happy to if inspired you, use any of my ideas freely, thats what this is all about, building community and sharing ideas with everyone!

I mounted it that way because it matched the contour almost perfectly.....more of a visual thing really. I figured no matter what, if it started raining I'd have to close it anyhow. Also, if the latch happens to open accidentally, the wind will just force it closed rather than fling it right off it's hinges. I think I'm going to make it so I can have it open a bit while driving....It
should create a "vacuum" and suck the hot air out, of course I'd have to leave some windows open as well to let air in.

That sounds like a great idea.....I wish it were true. Definitely some good times to be had in the desert!

Well....this thread was way over on the 3rd page! I guess that's what I get for slacking and being gone for so long!

If you'd like to check it out...I've uploaded episode 25 to my channel.
