Frameless Windows

There is no pic on the ETI website for the frameless windows. Are they like these?

Interesting! Thanks for posting.

Well, that confirms that the frameless windows will be thermal. Good! And they'll probably look like what Karen posted as that type seems to be on a vast majority of RVs these days. Most are awning type, but you can also get them with a slider window.

I found this link when I was cruising around, looking for info on frameless RV windows:

Guide to RV Windows, It's All About the Glass

Edit: They're listed on all of the trailers (least the windows; I didn't check for the cubbies, but would assume so).

This is really a "2017 model information" topic, rather than "price increase" discussion...

Many of the option listings (and it seems more than previously) include a make and model, or a photo, or both. This seems like a good item to have that extra description.

I don't know, but that's the style I have seen on other brands of trailers... usually relatively expensive trailers (most that I have seen in RV shows in even the last year are still not this style). Of course they are not actually frameless, but the glass (just the outer pane in the case of dual-pane) overlaps the frame; that looks good and might conduct a bit less heat.

The "frameless" design does stick out more from the trailer wall than a conventional window. This might be an opportunity to take advantage of what can be done with moulded fiberglass, by recessing the window area so that the outer glass surface is flush with the surrounding trailer body, but since that would shift the window further into the interior it would make sense only with a thicker body wall, such as one using the core material that Escape puts in the roof of larger models.
