I get all the green I need out the windows where I stay. I haven't got far enough on researching this to get to color, but would take clear over green for sure! GARYROAMER: agree, I had the same thought...it will be something to consider...bumped FIREUP to see how they handled it. MS: thanks for your comment....but I LOVE the single pane on our TT....and don't see any R value issue so far!
Thanks for all the information everyone!
Thanks for the nice comments. The $300 was for each window. What I was working on at the time, was a stationary and slider, for each side of the coach. Both were the same size. Both had fogging in both the slider and the stationary. So, I had two windows out of the coach at one time. So, that would have been close to $600 for the two from Atwood, at that time.
Now, you asked about the thickness. Well, as I stated earlier, that particular glass shop had multiple thickness's of LAMINATED glass. And not only that but, they had multiple colors too. They matched not only my original color tint but they came very, very close to the same thickness as the two panes of the original windows.
And that leads me to say to others that have mentioned the term SINGLE PANE, well, we need to clear up terminology here. SINGLE PANE glass, is NOT LAMINATED GLASS. Single pane is a single pane of glass, period. LAMINATED glass is just what the name implies, two panes of glass, LAMINATED together with a sheet of very special flexible plastic in between. And as stated, IT DOES come in different thickness's. I could have used the original extruded rubber seals but, this shop I was working with was very talented in "thinking outside the box" 'cause they do it day in and day out.
When I re-installed the re-worked windows, they looked and functioned, exactly like they did with the dual paned ones.
