Question Atruim Slide on Rockwood Windjammer 3008

We are getting ready to order a new 2012 Rockwood Windjammer 3008 with the atrium side and wanted to know if anyone has had problems with it making the slide too cold or hot because of the longer windows and loss of wall installation and if the new Thermal windows would help, have had dual pane in our 5th wheels that worked well.

We have the trailer you are describing. Picked it up in Mid May and have been out 4 times in it. Haven't had to worry about cold weather yet. We were out 4th of July weekend when the temps were around 100 the whole weekend. We left the day shades down the whole time and the A/C did get a workout but the camper was very comfortable the whole trip. At night we would close all the vents other than the bedroom and it actually got down right cold.
The atrium windows is what sold my wife on the unit and we absolutely love it. Great floorplan and looking forward to the next trip in two weeks.

My husband Randy wants to pick your husband's brain about towing with a 1500 because we have been looking at a 2500 to tow , did not think it had enough power for hills, suspension to handle the weight. Always used larger trucks for towing.

Don't worry about the heat/cold issue, just get the atrium windows.
They simply make the camper far more enjoyable and comfortable.
Great to have that wide-open feeling.
Everyone who walks into our camper just stops and stares for a minute with their mouths slightly open. That says it all!

The 1500 series truck is probably a little small for the 3008W trailer. I have the 5.3L engine with factory tow package. So far no issues but being in the Midwest and staying in fairly flat land the pulls have been pretty easy. I keep a close eye on my transmission temperature while towing and the WD hitch has worked out fine. We use the Equalizer 4 point sway control.
