The only thing I could think in that case as a benefit was less condensation on the glass in the morning, as putting thermopane in an R7 wall makes no sense for heat retention.

Isn't the sidewall in a Cedar Creek only around an R-9? It just strikes my curiosity that people swear by them that much. How much is the option on something with the amount of windows in a 30+ footer?

I agree. I didn't see the benefit of ordering them with a hybrid either. they would probably be good for a TT or fiver, especially if camping in cool weather or the heat of the deep south.

We had dual pane windows in our Class A, Allegro Bus. AND they were a pain to say the least. Seems dual pane windows don't particularly like bouncing down the road and the seal lets go and guess what?---Foggy windows. I can't begin to tell you the number of coaches at Red Bay (Tiffin factory service facility) every time we went there for our yearly "fix it" stop on our way south for the winter. Yes, they do work when the seal in in tack, however, the cost to replace and inconvenience of having them replaced or looking out foggy windows was definitely not worth it! We've owned 12 different RV's over the 30 years of camping, only the Bus had dual pane windows, and unless they get this issue under control I'm not interested in having them ever again!!!!!

I will be buying a small de humidifier for winter trips where heat meets cold=humidity. I never had dual pane in 8 years. No comment since no experience.
I can say we are comfortable in our Silverback 33RL regardless of weather and noise thus far ( 2 years ) a non event!

I don't have dual panes and have been very pleased with the sound being very low. Had the choice when ordering and passed on ordering. Too many friends with dual panes that have fogged up.

Anything to help with keeping the heat out.
Ours are frameless and labeled "insulated" on them. I dont know how or if they are actually a dual pane, but they are insulated somehow i guess. They are pretty thick though.

I wonder which type are better if at all. Flush style or standard frame style windows.

Keep this in mind on about any forum ... people most always bitch about a failure ... seldom do they post how well a given item is. So we have 50 people proclaiming how often theirs and friends dual panes lost their seal ... what about the 500 people that love em with no issue that never post?
At first I didn't think much of the new frameless windows ... that's kind of a misleading description as they do have frames ... just that the window glass seals over the frame instead of inside it. So far they have worked well for us after I sprayed silicone on the seals to be able to open and close them without difficulty. They are easier to clean on the outside since you don't deal with a frame ... you can easily squeegie them off standing on the ground.

I couldn't tell you that, but they are not the same as duel pane windows in a house they do not have gas in them just air trapped. Your just paying for a double glass window. Of course it will stop condensation because the wet air from a propane furnace will not contact the cold window. If your windows are condensation from the outside due point then you need some dehumidification. Propane heat is the worst for windows. I have single pane and the outside noise never is a problem. As far as heat go's in the summer when the sunshine hits were will it go. Tented is much better. Shoot a temp gun on single pane and then double pretty much the same. Now if they filled them with gas it might be different but they do no not like a home window. It's just a pocket between two windows....
