Front Window

A bit of a Newbie question here. Most front windows look like they have a tinted window cover on them from the pictures. The trailer I looked at the other day had clear front windows which, now when I look at the pictures, makes it look a lot more plain than the others. Is the tinted front window an option or did some trailers come with it and others not? If they are options what would it cost to buy them? Also how much are rock guards worth?

The tinted front window is as you said in the first part of your post.

"Most front windows look like they have a tinted window cover on them from the pictures."

It is known as a "Rock guard" to keep the front window from being shattered when your tow vehicle kicks up a stone or something.

They were / are standard equipment, but as the trailers age or are neglected they become broken or are just simply removed. They can be had through most Airstream dealers.

I installed one on our 75 Trade wind last fall. Had it drop shipped, came to around $400. Pretty easy to install. Had some re-shaping to do due to shipping. It bent back into shape easily. Would not be with out it. It also saves the curtains and interior from UV exposure.
