I didn't like the standard sliding window in the 490 because you cant leave them open in the rain and you get less than half as much air coming in.
So I found a very nice push out window which has a build in blind and fly screen .
Aussie Traveller sell those windows and call the Euro Vision window.
The one I fitted is about 10mm smaller than the slider which is better than being bigger as the old window has a steel frame behind it  I didn't want to cut.

By the way the window is perspex and double glassed

Here are a couple of photos.

not very difficult if the new window is a bit smaller than the old opening. I put 15mm timber all around and made round corners to suit the new window. I had a piece green powder coated stucco aluminium in my shed and sikaflexed that over the opening. Router the opening using the new frame as a guide and the window just sandwiches the opening.
I got more photos if you like to see some.

The new window doubles the air intake and we can leave it open in the rain which is nice
