Glacier package and Climate shield

So I have a 2013 Eagle with the Glacier package. Now they advertise climate shield. What's the difference or are they the same.

So did I ask a dumb question or does anyone know. Is there a difference. I see the newer Eagle has smoother gel gloss finish. Mine has the stronger roof but is there a difference in how the wall is made now and is the inulation the same

not sure - I have it as well. I watched a video on line of them pulling the 5er into a test garage where they drove the temp up and down and the interior temp remained stable.

When I hear glacier package, I think about the under belley and preventing frozen pipes and tanks

Ok here's another one, Thermal Package.
I'll bet all three mentioned are the same. If I feel ambitious tomorrow I'll call Jayco and ask them the question and see what answer they give.

Its like seeing a "New and Improved" label or " under new management sign".... Im not sure that these are just marketing gimics.

I think you hit the nail on the head.

I watch this video and wonder why our 5th gains temp during the day.
We can start out early am at 68 with the ac running and by the hottest part of the day it will be 80 with the outside temp in high 80s to 90 deg. We are in partial shad and keep all the shades down. Maybe they forgot to install the climate shield.

Bet most of your heat is coming in the the windows and slides. Hang some thermometers around in different areas. It will be very obvious on a sunny day. All the insulation in the world won't help single pane windows even with the shades pulled.

Yes it does feel warmer in the slides. We do have thermopane windows. And slide toppers.

At our winter site the camper's curb side faces south. On the hot Oct. and March days we get some benefit from shading that wall with the awning. If the wind comes up and it closes the temperature climbs noticably. I'm not convinced more insulation would make a huge difference. And I'm not convinced the double pane windows are worth what w paid for them. These things are basically big ovens. Ovens that don't hold the heat well when you need it.
