How Important is Double Pane Windows? (Jaycee Precept 31UL & others)

I was curious if anyone had an opinion on how important double pane windows might be on a coach? In looking at the Jayco Precept 31UL I noticed it is all single pane glass, albeit frameless and tinted. (But for insulation value that means nothing).

I'm speaking more of high temperature camping than winter camping in this regard. Has anyone tried living with both and noticed a significant difference in inside temperature and the need to run the A/C a lot more because of double pane (or lack thereof)? Or is it NBD?

Double pane windows will drastically reduce heat loss in winter and heat gain in summer. It'll make it more comfortable... but it wouldn't make or break a deal for me.

Double pane windows also drastically reduce condensation when the outside temperature drops. Again not a deal killer but nice.

The AC does a much better job of keeping up in this rig and there's no doubt the thermal pane windows are the main reason. At the other end of the thermometer, there's no condensation to deal with.

Double pane cut out all the condensation in our rig. The last two units we had would just drip moisture from the windows in the winter time with the furnace running. No condensation at all in this new unit.

I have double pane, low E glass windows in the stick n' brick. Without question, they make a difference. In an RV...........not so much. Have found through my ownership of two towables interior surface glass condensation(single pane) is not an issue if your doing an effective job of managing humidity and temperature inside the trailer.

As far insulation qualities of double pane RV windows that I have seen, well I'm doubtful at best and would find a better option to spend my money on if buying new.
