Entry door for new Bambi has a window

Can I replace my 2015 Bambi entry door with the new? Would like to be able to see out the door when it's closed. I put a call in to Airstream with this question but no return call as of yet.

Can you actually see out the door windows now? My 2011 door is highly frosted. If there is a lot of light outside, you can see a shape if someone is there, otherwise not really anything.

I would like to add a window to ours just to get more light inside. Not sure what is involved but suppose the factory could do it for a (considerable) price.

We just purchased our 2017 Bambi 16 Sport with the door window. We looked at a lightly used 2016 Bambi 16 Sport without the window. The dealer estimated 5K !!! for a new door as they would not install a window in the 2016 door nor would the remaining warranty remain valid.

No, you can't see out the door window as it is highly frosted.

The Airstream doors are a highly, labor-intensive install due to the need for careful fitting/fitment. The factory claims to spend an entire day on each door just for that work.
