Frameless Windows

We had frameless windows in a Sundance Fifth Wheel. Poor ventilation , had one break it cost over $1200.00 to replace. traded that trailer for a Crusader 315 RST with sliders. Ventilation much better and local glass shop would be able to repair window..

We love ours in a 3029W Windjammer get all the air flow we need and they don't leak like the sliders. It would probably be tough to find other style windows to fit the openings anyway!

Frameless Windows

Yeh so I'm being told they aren't an option by Forest River. I can't believe that, so I'm stuck with them apparently unless I find an off market brand that I can match the tint and they can replace them but won't be warrantied. I'm so pissed at myself and no one else. So, we've removed all the plastic pieces so they extend fully, which still isn't that much but will give it through fall and see how it goes. Anyone have any other thoughts are direction on where to find a replacement window company so that for at least the main rear window in the living area where the majority of time will be spent.

Learned a valuable lesson.

Well you can figure out how much new windows will cost you and then take that much of a loss and trade the camper. I usually the the urge to trade every year when the new models come out

Unless I'm mistaken, most frameless windows are double pane, and the way they close makes an airtight seal when compared to sliding windows. The dark tint is hopefully opaque to IR, which should help keep the inside cool in the summer and the double pane glass makes a huge difference when trying to keep the inside warm in below freezing temperatures.

I'd gladly take frameless windows over the sliding ones in my Georgetown.

Have you considered a rv salvage yard? There are some scattered around the area in Indiana where the rv's are made, I would Google RV Salvage for info, good luck on your search.

I used to do allot of camping in the Black rock desert with my class A and the window tracks would fill with dirt and were a pain to clean and keep the windows sliding, the frameless on my TT are easy to clean (outside) and I have found no indication of dirt build up on the window operator.

On my Cedar Creek the windows are frameless and they are not dual pane but they do look nice

Not all frameless windows are dual pane....the Silverback we are looking at comes with frameless windows standard but dual pane windows are listed as an option

I don't know what you mean by your statement of 'boxed in'.

Not sure what is not to like about the frameless windows.??????
He said he doesn't like them because you get a feeling of being "boxed in" (with the inability of sliding them open) and you have no cross-flow of air.

Frameless windows tilt out, they don't slide open like conventional windows,
