After living with our Safari for 2 years, my initial concerns about the Hehr windows turned out to be a non-event. For our purposes they have worked out fine. We camp in the mountains (usually wooded) or the beach (with is usual breezes) and get plenty of air. Of course, depending on where you live and camp, your situation could certainly vary with the Cornings being a big asset. Would I still prefer the swing open Cornings, yep (but what I would really like is more window space, hehr or otherwise). But I am fine with the Hehrs too. I don't think it is economical to try to change them out, I would just "upgrade" to a used trailer that had the windows. I am also fine with the lower priced of the Safari, much better value than the upgraded models. None of them are built very well for the bucks anyway (Thor must laugh at us Airstreamers as they march to the bank). Kind of like a Accord - Camary vs. Acura - Lexus thing, basically the same in many regards, on the upgraded models you pay a lot more for a bit more (I know this from owning several of the bit more cars - currently back to an Accord Coupe EX, lots of value - still fun to drive). But to each their own, the high end models are nice if you want to spring the bucks. BTW we rarely have hookups so we almost never use the AC and are still confortable. We have 3 Fantastic Fans and I am sure they help (we have solar panels so that helps with the elec. usage). Besides, we don't sit around inside the trailer all day anyway, we spend our time outside, that's why we go camping! Enjoy what you have, life is short and any Airstream/window still makes for a sweet machine!
