Question, has anyone tried to squirt foam into walls ,ceilings or floors. I've seen containers ( 2 cylinder system ) that mix the material in the nozzle head .
I've used "Great Stuff foam spray can's with success. I'm thinking if you insert too much the expansion will bulge walls ??

You would be sure to use 'low-expansion' foam--there are lots of types of foam to use and choose from. However, I don't know if even the 'low-expansion' type would not push out on an RV wall, considering how most of them are put together.

Concerning Dual Pane vs Single Pane widows. We had single pane windows on our previous travel trailer which we traded for a Montana 5th Wheel with dual pane windows in July 15. Dual pane was "must have" criteria for us. This decision was guided by talking to owners in campgrounds over a 3 year period on their experience and preference and our desire to visit very cold places in sub freezing temperatures. Our dual pane experience is definitely quieter, and no condensation in cold weather. Also, with our dual pane windows, we do not feel the cold radiating from them (like the single panes) in cold weather. Concerning cold weather comfort, we spent about 10 days at the Air Force Academy in Colorado over Christmas with nighttime lows around 0 degrees and daytime highs under 30 degrees and were very comfortable. My propane use was about 5-6 gallons per day with a basement temperature in the mid 40s at night (I have remote thermometers to help with my confidence). During our visits to RV shows and dealers the opinion seemed to vary drastically - possibly depending on what they had available.

"...and preference and our desire to visit very cold places in sub freezing temperatures."

Mr. Bill has said, and I have quoted here, exactly why I have asked the question in the first place. Thanks you very much sir!

We are looking for a, most likely, used 5er. Dual pane windows is a must for us as we will be doing exactly what Mr. Bill has stated. He has also stated, that after doing 3 years research talking to other campers that it is quieter inside the camper too. That is what I'm also looking for too.

Thank you to all you have stated either one or the other, warmer, quieter or both.

Just throwing this in the ring. We have a Canadian built Okanagan Eclipse with dual pane windows. It's quiet and the condensation issue is minimal. It's a light model, not too heavy, 10,000lbs GVW. We just bought a Carriage Compass with dual pane windows, will be here Thursday. When we search for RV's, the first must have on the list is the dual pane windows, and we found that if the rig had these, it usually had good build in the walls and roof. However, be sure to check on the dump valves, some units still place these under the unit exposed to the elements and road grime. And will freeze up in windy cold temps. We live full time in our unit, and our dump valves are inside the basement which has heat travelling through it from the furnace. Many RV's have this set up. You can always get it outfitted for skirting, which will cut the wind and keep your unit from freezing up.
