Not sure if this has been asked and I think what the answer is but here goes.
Is all the glass in a Motorhome Tempered like it is required in the automotive industry.

I know the windshield is laminated, tempered glass, like all automotive windshields....

As for the other windows, I believe it is a federal requirement that any occupied vehicle use tempered (safety) glass...

I know that the California Vehicle Code requires safety glass on all motor vehicles and campers..

"26701. (a) No person shall sell, offer for sale, or operate any motor vehicle, except a motorcycle, manufactured after January 1, 1936, unless it is equipped with safety glazing material wherever glazing materials are used in interior partitions, doors, windows, windshields, auxiliary wind deflectors or openings in the roof.

(b) No person shall sell or offer for sale any camper manufactured after January 1, 1968, nor shall any person operate a motor vehicle registered in this state which is equipped with that camper, unless the camper is equipped with safety glazing materials wherever glazing materials are used in outside windows and doors, interior partitions, and openings in the roof."

It is required for motorized RVs but not for towed RVs.
