Stumpeded on thermal window options

I'm purchasing the 2017 19'. On the build sheet there is the $1000 Extra insulation and thermal windows vs $1500 extra insulation and frameless thermal windows (includes opening rear window). I thought frameless windows was the only option on the 2017. Is the two options on the build sheet only for those still getting the 2016?

Due to popular demand for now one can order current thermal or frameless ones for 2017 models.

Is an opening rear window only available with the frameless?

Correct. And it'll be a split window so you can open both sides or just one side at a time.

I'm going with the frameless option since the metal frame on the old style seems to bring the outside cold inside and frost forms on the metal frame and then drips once it heats up. Hoping the new style will eliminate this issue.

Split window sounds nice.

If I get uncomfortable there is always the fan and a/c, the benefit of no drips plus opening rear plus opening in rain, IMHO far outweighs any perceived diminished air circulation.
