I thought ypu were talking about the vehicle in the OP's link not a partial adaption on one side of a MH. But if the latter it would obscure the view from the windows if not wound down or wound up if there were wind.
Sleep In the motorhome as normal.Geoff.
I am saying it could be an alternative to the wind out awning. Using the design of just the one side without all the junk. An all in one awning that is attached to the side of the van.
Pull up, on with the kettle, looks a nice place with good view, drop the awning, sit outside drink tea/coffee.glass of wine.

It is going to be bloody cold or bloody hot a lot of the time.
You have to leave it out to sleep in it, so Brry is right.
If you have the transparent enclosure you have no privacy.
It is probably fine for a day out e.g. fishing etc.
But as a substitute for a MH? NAH!
I had a similar experience to Barry a few years ago when on the Ile de Re off La Rochelle. Couldn't sleep as so hot, so sat outside watching electric storm in the distance. Suddenly, the wind whipped up from nowhere and I had to hang off the front rail to stop it flying up. It was lifting me up - and I'm no lightweight. Shouted to wife and managed to wind in without damage.
I never leave my awning out now overnight.
It was all I could do hang onto the canopy which if I hadnt been on the end of would have torn the van to pieces.
Im just thinking that something like that you would go out and leave it as its got beds and stuff in it, your not going to put it away each time you go out. I never leave our canopy out now when leaving the van in places like the Alps at any time of year. I would feel the same in Winter in the UK.
We used to have a 6 berth Dandy trailer tent that opened out like that (a bit...)
only you Barryd would leave that out in a force 10.get real.
