Good point, and that's exactly what I end up doing. I also hate being forced
to sit to see out, especially when the seats are too close or too far away from
the wall, which they always are if fixed in place.
Some hides use reflective glass (perspex) instead. While they're a bit
annoying to look through, they can give a very wide field of view without
having to install lots of flaps to cover the different height openings.
