If you have dual pane windows, which I will never be without, and they fog up, they can be repaired. But the company in Hudson, FL that specializes in fogged dual pane window repair charges double per window to repair frameless windows vs frame windows. I'm sure glad I have frame windows.

I love the look of frameless but that's about it. Our HTT has two big sliding windows and one casement style (emergency exit, not frameless). We do like being able to leave that window open when it raining. We hate it when it's a beautiful breezy day and we can't get the full benefit that the other windows give us. If/when we buy a new unit again and we have a choice between frameless or not, it will not be frameless.

Ahh thank u all for the responses. So it's either framed windows or dual windows seem to be popular option. I'm looking into RV now and the floor plan I want they don't have any with dual windows besides the one dealer on the western part of Canada. But the interior is meadow. Yuck white lol

Not to confuse it any further, but you can have frameless windows without them being dual pane. So in essence and not counting emergency egress windows, there are 3 types: Frameless and dual pane frameless that both open from the bottom and framed that slide open.

The biggest advantage of the framed windows is the cross ventilation. However, what we have found is that when camping in state parks in the summer, the smoke is so bad you will want the windows closed. We went back to frameless on our latest 5er.

I guess I don't really understand all the talk about no ventilation with frameless windows. If I open my frameless windows there definitely is air movement in the trailer. If I kick on my Fantastic Vent there can be enough airflow to blow papers off the table on the low setting. I can open all the windows and lose no privacy (tinted) anytime I want to. I can open my windows in a rainstorm and keep bone dry and have nice fresh air moving through TT. They look so much better than the framed windows IMO and are cake to keep spotless clean since there is no frame to deal with. Storing my camper at home in the summer I can leave a window open at front of TT, keep my Fantastic Vent Fan in rear with thermostat set around 85 deg, and know my TT isn't getting 6 million degrees inside rain or shine. Maybe Im just crazy, but I love my frameless windows!
