If your trailer comes standard with the newer frameless windows (which look very nice) then I would reconsider thermo windows which are framed windows. We had thermo windows on our last trailer. Won't waste my money again. We camped all over the U.S. in snow and hot desert. Just remember the R- rating on glass is next to nothing and the separation on the thermo glass is almost negligible. And don't kid yourself it doesn't reduce the outside noise enough to spend that much extra money.

One thing I've noticed on the newer light weight 5th wheelers is that Forest River is really skimping on the CCC weights. On your unit your extra carry weight is just over 1200 pounds. That's really low for a 5th wheeler.
Good luck on your decisions....
