Dual pane window installation

I have a Allegro 2009 35QBA. Two things I did not realize before I bought it was a year or two newer would have gotten me the 22.5 wheels and the double pane windows.
Not much I can do about the wheels I understand, but maybe windows.
Has anybody done a window swap and if so, approx. price.
If you have, was it worth the money??

Thanks,

Milton

THat is a pretty broad question. With double pane you won't have fogged windows on the inside of the coach, but hope you won't have them on the INSIDE of the window. Have one with moisture inside on the door. Can't get the window out. I believe I can fix it if I could get the darn thing out.
Are they worth the price of changing out windows? Can't say, but I seriously doubt it

Expensive to retrofit. Figure $500 to $1000 per window. I had one replaced in the door of my Magna, cost me $560 out the door. It's an odd shape and it was starting to fog up. they don't even try to save the old glass due to it's shape and removal usually breaks it anyway.

Actually the Allegro and Allegro RED still use single pane windows.

Tiffin has never put or offered dual pane windows for the Allegro or Allegro Red models. Not sure if you could even find dual pane windows for those coaches as Tiffin tends to make their own windows.

2017 allegro we were told there single pane windows are thicker to begin with. We asked about dual pane, were told down the road we'd be dealing with window fogging. So the the "single thicker window."

Thicker single pane windows certainly can't perform as well as a dual pane window. Wouldn't be without the dual pane windows on the coach. That was one of my must haves. My house has triple pane windows. No sweating no matter what temperature it is.

I have changed out window in an RV and it's not hard to do but you have to find windows that fit your RV first. I'm not sure about the costs but it shouldn't be hard to measure and find on the internet.

I do like the dual pane windows simply for sound and moisture barrier. There really isn't much "R" value to the windows so don't fall for that but they do make the coach quieter.
