Thermopane windows

Never paid attention when we bought our coach, but noticed the coach windows are thermopane, but not any of the cab windows and of course not the windshield.

Do the higher end coaches have thermopane windows in the cab? (drivers side, door, passenger window, etc.)

No, the only windows that are dual pane are the "RV windows". The vehicle windows such as the drivers/passenger side windows and the windshield are not thermo pane.

My Itasca Suncruiser has all dual pane windows except the windshield and the dirver's door power window. Actually the windshield and the driver's door window is two panes of glass laminated together. So every window is two panes of glass.

Older upscale Monacos are thermopane and the cab windows and windshield are bonded double pane glass. The make heating and cooling much more efficient. Cant vouch for new coaches but would assume so.

Most Class A coaches with dual pane windows include all windows expect windshield. Class B and Cs will have standard automotive safety glass.

Our 2001 Adventurer had dual pane windows all around except for the drivers door. It sounded like a great idea, but when the passengers side window fogged up it was impossible to use that side mirror. Also the dual pane window on the passengers side gave more reflection when driving in the dark.


Our 2013 Adventurer has dual pane windows all around except the cab. It's easier to use the mirror when driving at night and there will never be a problem with it fogging.


I believe the newer coaches that have dual pane windows in the cab have a mirror arrangement where they than can be seen through the windshield like the Grand Tour. Even if a side window should fog up it wouldn't interfere with the drivers vision.


Those that have mirrors arranged so the driver has to look through a side window to see the mirror use single pane windows in the cab.

On my '96 Safari the glass in all 8 windows is dual pane insulated glass.
