Poll regarding your Penthouse Window Zipper

Want to find out how many of us have two zippers for each window on the penthouse.
Did your new sportsmobile penthouse come with two zippers or one per canvas/clear vinyl window opening?

Do you have the Photographer's Edition Penthouse Canvas?

Not sure what the purpose of this post is, but I have two zippers on four windows.

oops , I meant 2 sets of 2 zippers(4 zippers) on each window on the Penthouse. One set of two zipper for the clear vinyl, and another set for the bug screen.

I've got 1 set for just the clear vinyl..

Thanks,

p.s. Photographers Edition Sportsmobile lets you poke a camera out the penthouse window... and I want to know what the ratio is with a Poll questionaire.. Thanks.

4 side windows each have a zippered clear window and a fixed screen. Front has a zippered canvas window and a zippered screen. Back has no window. Total of 6 zippers. I believe the front zippered screen might have been optional.

I've got:
2 rear zippered clear only
2 front zippered clear and zippered screen
1 front zippered canvas and zippered screen

At one time this was the "photographer's option" but some have said it's standard after a certain point.

Zippers

I've got the same setup as jage. I call it the "release bugs edition" since the two zippered screens allow you to release the bugs buzzing around the penthouse before you go to bed.

Exactly what I wanted to find out. I didnt' know there were two types of zipper bug screens (front only versus two more on the front sides).

You guys are lucky to have it. I have no Bug Release Screens!
And I'm thinking of having it redone to have at least one or one in front and the two sides..

I have a few photo's of critters (Foxes..coyotes) that have visited when we camped but they didn't turn out to good thru the bug screen..


For now, I'm using Blue painters tape to get em trapped bugs..

Let's see if we can get more people to say what they have..
THanks

I have two zippers on each screen and clear window in the sides. I think the front is the same as well. This is a top that's just a few months old, so I would imagine it would have the most recent zipper configuration.

When we ordered our SMB, the extra zippers for the screens were an option. So we got the extra zippers on the front three screens and the rear two are sewn tight.

SMB said the extra zippers were for photography with the top up. We use the zippers to get bugs out of the camper.
