Frameless Windows

Just purchased a new Greyhawk 2016 and after we got it home realized the windows only open about 2". This does not give enough air!

That is a big thing to realize later. I would suggest upgrading the roof vent to a Fantastic Fan and this will increase your air flow when on and the windows are open.

One of the reasons I opted for framed windows when we were looking. My wife noticed that they didn't open enough for her liking. We really like a good cross flow of air on nice days.

Coming from the slider windows, I've found them tough to open. I'm good w/ the frameless w/ the aforementioned fan blowing to create a draft. Plus I'd imagine you could leave them open some when its raining?

Yup, that's a plus with the frameless (we also have them).

Fan

We have the fan, but I am used to more air. Won't be bad on a cool day, but really need the AC in the sun.

Love the flameless. Plenty of airflow, easier to open then those PITA sliders and crank windows we had on our 5ver. When we need to, we just open the roof vent and there is a nice airflow. Moisture and condensation are reduced as well. Good luck Felton with your new rig.

If you have dual pane windows they will eventually get moisture between the panes and will need to be repaired or replaced (speaking from experience here). Replacements are very expensive, but they can be repaired much cheaper (again speaking from experience here).

When I was having my windows repaired this past December I found out that frameless windows cost double the amount per window if they are frameless.

I'm tickled that I have frame windows. I had 8 windows that had moisture and had to be repaired, but since I was at the repair facility after a 550 mile drive, I had all 15 windows done. The repair has a 10 year warranty (pro rated of course), but that is much better than a 1 year warranty with a new window.

Hi, edatlanta, your right about the double pane windows, but I believe on Feltonj's 2016 they are probably like my 2015, tinted tempered single pane. I have camped late in the fall, here in Canada and l have less heat loss now, then I did with my 2005 fifth wheel with frame double pane window. Cheers.

Just curious, what is the process for repairing the dual pane windows? When you say repaired do you mean replacing the moveable panels?
I have them and they are new, but I was just wondering for future reference.
I think they're great. They are way more insulating than the old sliders in our other unit.
