dual pane windows?

Do dual pane windows make a huge difference in road noise? We originally were purchasing 378 with dual panes but it got sold out from under us and the one we are now looking at does not have dual panes

I found that the double pane windows do quiet the road noise somewhat. They also seem to help with cooling and heating as well. Originally wasn't going to get them but the unit I wound up with had them installed already. Happy that it worked out that way.

We also have dual phane windows in our Georgetown. It saves on heat in the winter and I am sure it cuts down some of the noise outside. We can tell the difference in fuel savings during the winter months in Florida.

Our unit did not end up having them since we didn't have the luxury of choosing. It would be nice to have them but there has not been a time I've kicked myself for it. We camp often when the temps are in the 20s-30s in the late fall and early spring and heating hasn't been an issue. The heater may run more but it has no problem keeping it toasty. We've also camped in the 100s in Florida in July and the dual air conditioners keep up. I've never really noticed any noise coming from those windows and it's normally quiet where we camp.

Dual pane glass

I am now on my 4th motorhome a georgie 378. My 1st was A winnie brave 1999 without dual pane glass. All three coaches after that had dual pane. It makes a big difference.
