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.
