I would consider some quality indoor or outdoor window coverings that provide privacy and keep out UV light.
BUT if you have the disposable income to gamble with on thermal panes and for future repairs, go for it.
that does not paint a pretty picture

We have all thermos on our Heartland for 5 years now. They ate still new. We have over 30k miles on the unit and driven the worst roads in america. In New Brunswick Canada that is.
I only heard of Motor Homes windows that have failed.
But. I am not sure the frames on TTs are stiff enough, have no experience, just my unit.
They sure have been a blessing with the last 3 cold southern winters.
Beats having to cover the windows with blankets to heat the unit and running condensation every day.

Almost all thermal windows will fail at some point but at least now there a several companies that can fix them. The severity will vary depending on your travel habilts. If you are traveling through higher elevation or changing temperatures it will speed up the process. The manufactures will only warranty windows for 1 year due to these reasons. As a repair facility it is very unusual to see a coach without at least 1 fogged window.... especially if it is a couple years old. Just the nature of the beast.
