Newroswel: Really like your porthole window. I have 64 GT w/door-in-door, and would like to do the same. Would you care to share details?

The plate is more or less like the one you have now. You'll just have two plates and lock sets - and double the protection against the door flying open.

I also never use the flimsy key and lock on the Bargman; I only use the Wiser one.

Sergei
Way cool! Thanks!

Eastern South Dakota is very pretty with hills, rivers, and trees.

Unfortunately, that is not my beauty. We took that picture and several hundred others at one of the many vintage trailer rally's we've been to. Sorry I don't have any details of the owner.

Hi newroswell;
Where did you get the barn door hinges for a door in a door? "Boatdoc"

Hi Rawfoodgirl;
A Sergei explained, it is mostly about the daylight and ability to see outside. The standard peephole viewer would not work as the screen door would not let you get close enough to the eyepiece to see. There is one available on the market in 2.3/8" diameter that will allow you to see few feet away from the viewer, I believe it is at 235 degree of view. Thanks "Boatdoc"

A peep hole doesn't change that feeling.

Hi Sergei;
Boy am I thankful for your input on my window in a door idea. I have called back Ryan at RVRewive in Iowa and change the order from vista window to galley window. Your job looks fantastic and it is exactly what I need. Pics, when available. Thanks Sergei, "Boatdoc"
