Dual pane windows and other options

Still trying to get smart on Cedar Creek before placing an order for a 34RL. So I have a few questions on some of the options and features.

Dual Pane Windows - On a motorhome I had problems with clouding as the windows aged. I'm thinking that dual pane is probably not even need on a fifth wheel since it will have 2 AC units. Good option or waste of money?

50 Amp Power Cord Reel - Keeps the cord organized and available but seems to take up a lot of storage space. Yea or nea on this one?

Bathroom Sliding Door - On the one model I was able to visit the sliding bathroom door didn't provide much privacy and no locking feature. Is there more to learn about this type door or it just intended for minimal privacy?

Trail Air Hitch - I don't know the cost of this option but thinking I may get this. Any negatives on this?

Thanks All! And happy camping.

I would get the windows if me. I don't have them on mine. Would not own another camper unless it had air ride hitch. Put a different brand on mine. No comparison.

I would get the dual pained windows and the Trail air hitch. I think I would also get the residential refrigerator and have it prepped for solar. I would get the microwave/convection oven. I would stay with the gas/electric hot water heater, it is a option now.

I totally agree with the residential refrigerator; does the solar prep include the panels and everything needed? Also, gas/electric hot water IMHO is the only way to go. Thanks.

I just received new 36CKTS. Here's what I recommend:

DO get the dual pane windows. They are nice!

DO NOT get the cord reel! A) it is too flimsy to hold the anaconda cord, and B) they give it to you anyway (we didn't order it and we got it).

DO get the trail air hitch. It isn't enough for me, but every thing helps when towing

DO get the residential refrig, the 20 cu ft model. You will regret not doing this one.

Bathroom sliding door is just a 3 part sliding door. Works great. Not sure your question, it's a great shower and door. You do NOT want to lock a shower door!

I like the cord reel, I fastened it to the floor of camper. It holds that 50amp cable. If you like I can take a picture of the reel screwed down in the basement

I meant the wooden pocket door for the bathroom. It has a plastic strap to hold it secure when on the road. However, when closed it doesn't provide much privacy with a 2 inch opening across the bottom and no way to lock from the inside.

Oh. Yes, that's true. I do not care for that door. I guess it's the one thing I didn't like. I am still thinking on how to 'lock' it or hold it securely while inside bathroom.
