Dual Pane Windows

We're in the process of spec-ing out a new 5th wheel and I'm looking for some current thoughts how well benefits balance with the cost and weight. I'm especially curious about peoples experiences with fogging up, which I've read here could be a problem.

I have had my 5th wheel over 4 years and all my dual pane windows are clear.
But I do store it under a car port when not traveling.

Two 5'ers in 5 years, both with dual pane. No leaks or fogging.

We ordered our previous 5th wheel with dual pane windows and found them well worth the cost. They never fogged up and not only helped with temp but also with outside noise.

We ordered our 2010 Cedar Creek with them and a couple did fog up but were replaced by the factory. They came standard on our 2017 River Stone Legacy and feel either way they are worth it cooler in summer and warmer in the fall and winter, also inside seems quieter with them. Now how much weight they add I am not sure but doubt we would get a unit without them again.

Dual Pane Windows

We have dual pane windows in our Rockwood 2109s TT and they help with sound and heat/cold. No problems with fogging.

Thanks all for your comments.

Any idea on how much weight they add?

Smile weight of glass

a single pane of glass weights approx. 1.70 pounds per square foot. Estimate how many windows and their square footage times the 1.75# and you will have your additional weight.
