Best windows to get?

I lived full time for four years in a 1968 24’ Holiday Rambler with large banks of jalousie windows. And yes, they’re wonderful... except in winter. Temperatures where I was living dropped to around 0*F occasionally, but low 20’s was more typical. I added plastic on the inside each year. Much better, but it didn’t do much for the view!

It was a wonderful trailer, well constructed with an aluminum frame and all-composite cabinetry, leak-free after 20 years, great layout, otherwise equipped for four season use. I don’t think dual pane windows were available in 1968.

Thanks John,

Good info. I didn't know they were called 'Jalousie Windows'. I still think they are the greatest window one can purchase for a small trailer. Here's why: They can be controlled and shed the rain without leakage into the trailer. The fact that they may be somewhat drafty, mine weren't in our Trillium, seems like a desirable exchange as some darftiness in a small trailer is a good thing isn't it?, especially in fiberglass units involved in these threads. A small trailer requires very little heat anyway. From my point of view, we own and use a 17 ft BigFoot trailer, I would exchnage the Bidfoot windows for those Trillium windows in a heartbeat.
