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.

    • Hey everybody. An FYI. There is something new coming. Should be out around October, 2017 and available for on-line purchase.   If you google : ICE WELL Live Well ICAST 2017 The video of the product roll-out at ICAST 2017 in July, 2017 will pop up.   Also you can go to the product page. See : ICEWELLLiveWell.com. The page has a separate video to view also.                        The product is being manufactured from a custom blend non-buoyant polypropylene with impact modifiers to withstand extreme cold without cracking. The product will sit within 99% of all manufactured 5-gallon buckets for transport to and from the fishing spot. It is designed to fit within a drilled 8 or 10 inch ice hole. When in the drilled hole it will fill allowing you to throw your catch in the ICE WELL Live Well. No more throwing them on the ice or in the bucket to die, freeze or turn to slime. At the end of the day, pull it, place back in the bucket for transport home. No more frozen fish and easy handling. It's going to sell for around $19.99 plus shipping. The listed page will undergo changes before roll out that will allow purchase direct on-line. This is a creation by a Nebraska ice fisherman for ice fishermen. Made in the USA. Made with recycled materials. "Respect the Resource".
