I have dual pane windows, not frameless, in my Designer and would not be without them. I full time and condensation has never ever been a problem. But,

At the 4 year mark I noticed a couple of them were fogging up between the panes. On closer inspection as the summer progressed I had 6-7. So what to do? I made an appointment in Hudson, FL the week ahead of my trip to Ft. Wilderness and had every window in the rig removed and reworked. It was a bit pricey but made more sense to me to do all of them when I was there. They are Kinro windows also. I don't consider them junk as a previous post said was mentioned by his dealer, but they could be sealed better. Other things on RV's are definitely junk, but I don't hear any mentions of dealers calling rubber roofs junk, but that is a topic for other threads some of which I have already written.

Would I rework all of my windows again - Definitely
Would I buy dual pane windows again - Definitely, but a part timer or weekend camper might not want to.

Would I buy a rubber roof again - Yes, only because it is all you can get, but would have it sprayed over by RV Flex Armor before I ever moved in. Just the cost of getting it right the first time.

Off of soapbox and ready for another cup!

We just spent 10 days near Destin in 95+ degree weather.
In our old TT you could feel the heat radiating in the single pane windows. With the insulated windows, there was just some warmth, not the baking heat. We were in a site with no shade and were able to maintain 72 degrees with both ACs cycling, not running continuously. Nice not having to leave the shades drawn or resort to the aluminum bubble wrap stuff to block heat. The 5th didn't feel like a cave.
We are pleased to say the least.
On our 2016, all windows are insulated including the tilts and even the small ones in the bedroom slide.
The only non insulated is the one in the entry door. The heat really baked in on that one. We may look for a shade for it.
Can't wait to see how it does in the fall/winter with the cold.
I would not be without them.

I am in Panama City Beach, FL and have been here since May 1. I agree with you on how well the dual pane windows work. Since I'm in mine year round you will like the winter performance as well and outside sounds aren't heard as loud either. Win Win year round from my perspective.
