Muttley That is a really nice window and I love the coyotes and quails.

I love the stained glass window that Ann and Bill did for Jim and I of our cat, Jerry. When the door is open and the sun is on the window, it is golden. When closed or no sun, we have the blue background. We love it.

Ann made this window for our trailer. I sent her a picture of what we wanted. This is a light house in Ludington Michigan where my wife grew up.
It is truly a work of art.

I'd like to get a stained-glass style door window, they look super ! , but, I would want a transparent 'peephole' left in it ... I don't like the idea of not seeing who's at my front door ... bad enough, not being able to check on my tow vehicle thru the front wall ... I don't like 'blind spots' tongue.gif

Hi Roadcam,

I like your idea of a peep hole incorporated into the design of a stain glass window.. You could off center it for a more interesting design. It would make you more comfortable and you would be doing it with art!!!!.

Maybe Ann will read your request and tell us if it is even possible?

Very doable.

I sent a private message, roadcam. It doesn't show that it went through. I am not good at this technicle stuff. Let me know if you did not receive it.

A 3 to 5" square or diamond bevel could easily be inserted into a design in the upper corner to allow viewing out the front window. The bevel could even be backed with mirrored privacy film for more secure daytime privacy. A piece of plain double strength glass centered in the window, as Leehman suggested, would also work.

I hope to have a sample window done using this method, to be used in our trailer, as soon as we return from a much needed jaunt in our trailer up to the Cascades. Already started, just not done.

Always open for suggestions and happy to assist with adding a special touch to our little trailers.

Ann

I had to get use to not seeing my tow vehicle also after having pop-ups for years but just got use to it. I have read I think here somewhere that someone mounted a rear view mirror on the window frame pointed so you could look out the window and see forward towards your vehicle. I have hung a shaving mirror on the awning leg to see a few times but found it more trouble than it's worth.

Ah, Harold. I was just thinking this morning that it had been awhile since you'd done any of your now-infamous Photoshopping...and, voila, here you are. Must be more of that synchronicity. You're a crack-up, my friend.

I agree. I like the eyeball! Instead of the eyeball, I would put a circular bevel with a piece of privacy film adhered to it. It would look like a mirror. Can you do that with your photo magic?

I sent a private message to Leehman stating the same idea! The bevel, not the eyeball!

I did it. Here is the window I made for our trailer. With a peephole. The quarter moon bevel is the peephole.

Thank you for the idea Eileen.

Here is another one - Ann did this for us a while ago.

The underling theme is that we travel with our Egg Motel from the Alamo (where we got out butts whipped) on to San Jacinto (where we whipped their butts) always under the dominant Texas sun. Ann is a gifted artist!

Our magnificent stained glass window by Ann finally arrived. We just got the door window installed and even on a cloudy day it is beautiful. Ann is the best!! She is so talented and just a great Casita person.

We used the Appalachian Trail theme because Susan had hiked solo the AT some years ago. Also in the bottom corner is the BC symbol for the fight of survival. Ann saw the entire purpose of the theme we used and captured it fully. "A sunrise brings promise of a new day; a forest trail gives us the peace and courage to face that day."
Thanks Ann.
