Dual pane windows

Was at dealer today and our salesman kind of discouraged us from getting dual pane windows for our Columbus 320RS. I would like to here you opinions. Thanks, Craig

I ordered them on my sabre. I've been told it will help with keeping heat and cool out. I guess like a house they = more efficiency.
I guess we will see when I get it!

Our salesman said that it not up the R-Factor and that seals in between could break. He just thought they were not worth the extra $1,100 and he might be right.

We added them when we ordered our Sabre. We have 15 windows and use our camper from mid April thru mid October. After 2 seasons I can confirm they do help alot. Another thing is that they seem to keep noise out better too.

You know I was just thinking about this today. At almost 33 yo we are fixin to get our 2nd 5er. I wonder how many campers we will have had by the time we're OC's age?!

They don't fog up or sweat in the cold like single pane windows do.

Had they been available (or had I known they were available), I would have ordered them in a heartbeat. As MillerTime said- they keep the hot and cold out better than single pane windows.
