Dual panes and ducted A/C.....when?

I'm looking at older CCs for sale online. Is there a point in time where CC
began using dual pane windows? Same question for ducted A/C. (Maybe depended somewhat on model ?)

Using the search tool, I did read about the fogging/seal creep problems on Se-GI windows ...... if not noted on an older (for sale) coach, methinks it shouldn't be a worry (they would likely have been repaired/reworked long ago?)

TIA......Ed Sievers, Fairview, TX

I would think if any creeping spacers had been repaired/reworked the seller would note it as an advantage/improvement.

BTW, one of my dual pane window spacers is just beginning to creep..... (at 17 years old).

Our coach has ducted A/C with 3 A/C units and over-the-road A/C in the bedroom. No dual-pane windows. They came in the late 90's.

Thanks for the info on windows and ducted air.....

Thanks Mel and Peralko. So far it looks like CC has had ducted air a l-o-n-g time.....at least as far back as 95. Interesting about the chassis air for the BR in the Affinity......... seems like a nice, deluxe feature.

Perhaps someone with a 96-97-98 will chime in on the dual panes. All this info in my database just helps to "zero in" on the earliest model I would "like"; but of course single pane windows would sure not be a deal breaker ...... I just understand that they provide a little quieter coach for sleeping...but no big deal.

Appreciate your help. I know I will have more questions.....even though I read this forum a lot.

Thanks again ....... be safe.
Ed S.

Usually dual pane windows are an option and very few dealer coaches were ordered with them.

We have the ducted AC and engine driven OTR AC.

We also have the single pane windows. I installed a home theater 5.1 speaker system years ago. Standing outside 5 feet away from the rig with all the windows and door closed, I could barely hear the car and tree sequence from a Harry Potter movie which was quite loud inside the rig.

I would guess the double pane benefit is more about less condensation and heat retention than noise reduction. But, I have not one of each type of window setup to compare....
