the vinyl itself on an excalibur is too thin and flimsy. the frame would be thick/wide to compensate for structural short comings. excalibur is not a high quality window by any stretch and thus its never recommended on this board or is the sheffield for that matter.
the difference between the 1 and 2? the 2 is twice as bad...lol

This is wrong on multiple accounts.

The Excalibur is a sub-standard window to put it mildly. I have not seen the Excalibur 2 but I can't imagine that it is much better.
