No, not all newer motorhomes have double pane windows. I have even seen newer diesel pushers that have only single pane windows.

hmmmmm!!
My Sister told me to get one with double pane windows and I said "I think all newer ones have them".. I guess I'm wrong huh.. although I don't think I'm very concered with it because I will be following the sun.. So is it just as important to have them anyway..

I personally would not be without double pane windows. Reasons being, great insulating qualities, and mainly for the sound reduction they afford.

AH, I never thought about being sound reduction.. I guess I still got some to learning to do.. I just thought since not being in any cold climates, why would you need them..

I guess if you bruise your hand when trying to open the window, then the frame falls on your head when you stick your head out the window it would be called a double "pain" window?

If you don't mind 80+ degree temps inside when the outside temps near or break 100 then you probably don't want insulated glass. When my main AC went down last week I was able to survive with a 10,000 btu portable roll-about AC vented through a piece of plywood in place of one of the screens. Without the insulated glass I don't think it would have worked nearly as well in the August Florida heat.

Regards,

There I fixed it.. although the question was about insulated windows not about misspelled words, but thanks for the response anyway..

No "pain", BLT, Alan was just having a little chuckle at your expense. We try to have fun here and I hope you weren't offended.

I think more and more RVs are now coming with dual pane glass as standard equipment, but it would not be wise to assume that all do. Lower priced rigs have to save some dollars somewhere and the windows are one obvious place.

And make no mistake, dual pane glass is a valuable feature, helping to keep you cool in the summer and warm on cold nights, reducing exterior noises and also reducing condensation on the interior glass. I heartly recommend it in anyRv you purchases.

In 2003 double pain windows were standard equipment in the Itasca Sunrise model and the comparable Winnebago Brave model double pain windows were an option.
