Dual pane windows can offer several benefits for a fifth wheel RV, including improved insulation, reduced noise, and increased durability. Here are a few key points to consider:
Improved insulation: Dual pane windows typically have a layer of argon or krypton gas in between the two panes, which helps to reduce heat transfer and keep the RV more comfortable in extreme temperatures. This can also help to reduce energy costs and make it easier to maintain a consistent temperature inside the RV. This is especially important where we are in the desert as peak summertime temperatures can reach 105 degrees! Also, since it’s bright sunshine most of the time, and RV’s are notorious for being heated with sunshine, windows may be even more important in this climate.
Reduced noise: The extra layer of glass in dual pane windows can help to reduce outside noise, making it easier to relax and sleep inside the RV.
Increased durability: Dual pane windows are generally more durable than single pane windows and are less likely to develop cracks or leaks over time. This can help to ensure that your RV stays well-protected from the elements and provides a comfortable living space for years to come.
Reduction or elimination of condensation: Dual pane windows get rid of that early morning condensation that occurs when the temperature dips. This feature alone makes them worthwhile in our opinion. I hate having to wipe windows down every morning to see out when it’s cold.
Of course, the specific benefits of dual pane windows for a fifth wheel RV will depend on the type of RV, the climate you are traveling in, and your own preferences and needs. However, in general, dual pane windows can be a worthwhile investment for those looking to upgrade their RV and enjoy a more comfortable and convenient living space on the road.
