These arguments usually go nowhere. What needs to happen is a test needs to be done with identical trailers. One with DP windows and one with SP windows. Until then it's all opinions and we all know about everyone's opinions.

There have already been numerous tests done and it is a fact the dual pane windows have more insulation value. Same as in a sticks and bricks. Mine are dual pane and also tinted and I KNOW I have much less heat infiltration from the sun and far less loss of heat in cold weather. Case closed. All season should also include dual pane windows.

There are a lot of folks that don't want or feel need for dual pane windows. We have never been able to justify the additional cost and weight of a savings for a small amount of condensation. If I sent a lot of time in cold country I might reconsider.

You have a Landmark and you are worried about additional weight? Seems you are already overloaded then. The additional cost is minimal when you take into account the additional value at trade in time. It is like you either have a gasser or a diesel. Which one has the best resale value?

You do realize that at most you are only adding a couple hundred pounds, if even that much?

Personally i would not go back to single pane. Ive had both and the dual pane are well worth it. Less heat transfer and a little quieter. Its a personal choice.

If you have condensation forming on your windows all you need to do is crack your bathroom vent open, it's magical no more condensation! If you have double pane Windows check and make sure they are truly household type sealed Windows. Most RV double pane Windows are just two panes of glass and aren't sealed with gas between the Windows.
