2017 Thor Outlaw windows

Is it worth the money to get the double pain frameless Windows?

Over single pane windows? Or over double pane normal windows?

Answer, probably not unless you just like the look.. and don't the frame less ones only open a smidge?

it depends on the type of Double Pane windows you are referring to:

We have both, two framed sliders at the driver and passenger seats, and all the others are frameless 'wind out' types.

I like the front sliders because you can open them 'all the way' for much more air flow, but the negative is that you can't keep any of it open when it's raining.

I like all the other 'wind outs' because you can keep them open even in rain, but the negative is that they require you to wind them in and out, and they only go out an inch or so, so air flow is much more limited.

Dual pane windows are worth the cost. I would not get frameless again. Framed and frameless dual pane Windows were the same price for our 5th wheel.

The new Outlaw (and most new Thor Class A's) come with Frameless single pane - Standard equipment.
And Frameless Dual Pane - Optional equipment.

We have dual pane (but framed - as frameless was not offered in '07) and KNOW that the dual pane is worth the slight cost difference for insulation factor.

Our Outlaw has stayed cool to 115 degrees in TX and warm to 19 degree in Washington...thanks to insulation.

The weak point for insulation is the windshield...but that can be addressed with different aftermarket products when parked.

Come visit with owners here:
