It does not add much weight have them on mine and the nice thing of it is that they dont frost like regular windows your unit is very well insulated and this will help you on heating cost and more comfortable inside unit.

No they are not exactly like dual pane stick house windows, but they do make a difference. Once you go double pane, you'll wonder why you waited so long. Helps in heating, cooling, condensation on insides of windows, and has an added benefit of lowering the campground noise inside your RV. Like said ... the minimal weight issue is far outweighed by the advantages.

X2- would buy them again, and wish I had them on my previous trailers.

Diesel guy hit the nail on the head. They are not quite as good as home style double pane, but a heck of an improvement over single pane. I wouldn't have another camper without double pane windows.

I liked my too until four of the small tilt-out windows started to cloud up between the panes, six months out of warranty. I understand they are quite expensive to repair or replace.

2 SOB's and 1 Silverback ... 11 years of dual panes ... no issues other than paying abit more for them. Yes there are a few reports of loosing the seal between the panes ... your sidewall may delaminate ... your fridge may pinhole and loose the cooling fluid ... there's a lot of possibilities of failures owning an RV.

Same thing happened to ours but they did swap them out with new at the FROG rally but it took 2 years before it was done.

As others have said Diesel Guy said it right! I won't buy another one without them. The noise difference is unbelievable!
