Window Type

Hi everyone I'd like to get some opinions on windows for my 17' box van conversion(MDT). Whether to use RV windows or windows for stick built houses. I do understand there is a higher risk of breaking the gas filled seal on Res. type windows because of possibly to much vibration and then there's the wall thickness. My walls are going to be 1.5 ridge foam using 1x1 (.75x1 true) on top of .75 siding lap seal 12' on center. I'm leaning toward the double pane RV type (2nd Q) are they worth the extra cost over single pane?

Just make sure the glass is tempered glass. When it breaks it becomes 'crumbs' of glass nuggets instead of jagged spears.

For sure go with double pain RV windows. Don't think house style windows will stand up to travel.

Thanks everyone. after looking at it a little closer I don't believe that res. window will go down to my wall thickness.
Yes double pane would be the better choice to minimize heat lose or keep what I'll have in interior heat.
