Closed or open window when trailering

You guys with open bows, do you trailer with the window open or closed?

Closed....even though there is a snap to hold it open I've always been afraid of it bouncing or worse, catching wind and slamming shut into thousands of pieces..

Closed! I worry about a cross wind slamming the window shut breaking the glass. I don't trust that strap to keep it held down.

Close it and put the wind dam insert in if you have one. Keeps crap from whipping around in the cabin and bugs off your vinyl.

Always closed, no cover. Even though this happened once in 13 years of towing, I still keep it closed.

It was a flook that someone decided to pass me on a two lane load and kicked up a rock as they cross the center.

Closed when the cover is off. But I usually tow with the cover on.
