Is it really frosted?

I was just thinking what a shame it was that the 19' International CCD we got a year or so ago (probably a 2009er) has a frosted window in the door. I wondered how one would replace it with a clear window.

Then I got to thinking, that isn't a film on the window that I could (and maybe should have already) peel off? Jumped up, took my flashlight out and examined; it doesn't look like film to me, but what do I know?

Any ideas on:

Is the frosting in the door window a removable film or something?

How could I get a clear window for that door?

Greetings from the Florida Panhandle

First off, Welcome to the Forums. We're glad to have you with us.

As to the frosted glass in your door. I'm fairly sure that it is frosted glass, and not a stuck on sheet.

It is not a's frosted glass. Ours is the same way. I've thought about this off and on as well. You could no doubt have the glass replaced at some expense... But a couple of things to consider are: (1) if the window is clear you'd probably want a curtain on it ...which would have to go between the screen door and the door... and then, (2) when the screen is closed and the door is open, the curtain would be exposed to the elements. I suppose you could put a tension rod cafe curtain affair inside the frame of the window, but my guess is that it'd be more hassle that it's worth...and you'd probably have it closed more often than you have it open. I'd be interested to know what you come up with.

(We had a small motor home that had a clear glass window in the door...with a curtain. It seemed like the curtain was always dirty and seemed to catch every bit of dust was a constant hassle.)

I had an 87 Sovereign that had a clear window glass in the door. Airstream had addressed privacy back then by putting a shade that fit in between the window and the inside skin if the door and it had a Velcro tab at the bottom to keep the shade in the closed position. The shade slid in a track on each side and against the window.
It was pretty simple and might be worth a check with Jackson Center to see if they could incorporate that type of sliding shade in your trailer door along with a non frosted window.

Thanks for your replies. I like the idea of the window but hadn't considered the privacy/shade issue. You've given me something to think/plan/scheme about.
