thermal pane windows

5 posts in this topic

I am looking at a new pickup camper and am wondering if thermal pane windows are worth it. To get these windows it would have to be special order which means not as good of a deal than and inv. item they want to move. If I did NOT get the TP I would get storm windows. I have heard both pro and con of the the TP windows so was hoping for some advise thoughts on this.

Thanks!

Depends on how cold it is when you use it. They don't have a lot of insulation to start with so you have more areas of heat loss than just the windows. I would go with the storm windows. You could always add some of them plastic window film kits if that isn't enough. Most of the windows in campers are marginal at best anyway.

I've had the storm windows and they've worked well. There was a rubber gasket that made a good seal against the window frame. The cost was reasonable too. This was for all winter camping in a 29 foot travel trailer.

I had called and inquired about thermal pane windows for my Lodge fish house. They wanted $600 buck a piece to order them.

Not worth the money in my opinion.

I'm looking at getting a thermal canvas cover from canvas craft that i can snap over the windows for the night time when ice fishing.

Thermal pane and storm windows are two different things. The cost for all the windows on my trailer was under $200 for storm windows.

    • You can save the mapping data on an SD card. In order to create a map you will need the Zero Line Card. You will take the SD card and plug it into your PC. Down load the map data into the zero line software. The software than creates the map and uploads it to the zero line card. It is typically recommended to use an SD card for the data as once the zero line card is full of either maps or map data another card will need to be purchased.
    • whats a samsquatch?  lol
    • Nope....don't need friendseyeguy54..... It was a darn samsquatch!
    • Way to get him out MM!  I'm sure he appreciates it.
    • I believe some units come with maps of some lakes but probably wont have any real detail as far as contour lines.  I think most will have a map of the US but when you zoom in you wont get much for detail on lakes and If they do contours will probably be 5-7ft apart.  If you want to put data on a card you will need a zero line card for mapping. About $150 i think.  8 hours should give you quite a bit of mapping.  Best would be to buy from a retailer so someone with knowledge of the product can show you how to run it.  You might be able to take some snap shots of sonar and put on a blank card but don't think you can map with it. I would get a Lakemaster card for the area(s) you want to fish.  Worth every penny.
    • Turkey season is over for my nephew!! It was a long season with many hours spent in the blind. He seen more turkeys then ever before and had a toms close enough to grab. It is going to be nice to sleep in. Until fall turkeys!
    • Heading up to Devils in a couple weeks and again later on.  Doesn't look like a lot of activity on here.  Tryng to get an idea whats happening before I go.
    • I have been out the last two days locally and haven't set the world on fire. Caught a few each day, but fish have been scattered. Lake is loaded with curly leaf mats this year, so that hasn't helped things. Once that starts dying and weather warms up, things should pick up.
