Hello helpful people!
Thank you all so much for the quick replies! I'm sold on the insulation and windows.

One last question: I know that the seals on a couple of my home double pane windows have been compromised, causing condensation between the layers. Has this been a problem? I wonder if a lot of bumpy miles might put the seals at risk. (I may ask this question in a separate thread as well, but I'll keep watching this one.)

I'm aware of only one window in one unit that had an issue and I'm sure it is covered under the 2 year warranty.

Hi, Kathryn. We got the insulation and double paned windows in our 21, as much for the Texas heat as for any winter cold. (We also skipped the spray foam on bottom.) Even though I see you're already convinced, I thought I'd chime in since we live in your area. FWIW, we have low-E glass, double paned windows in our 11 year old house and have had no condensation issues (seal failures) like we experienced in our previous house - so I'm thinking/hoping the technology has improved in the past 25 years. Have fun with your new trailer!

We had one window in our 19' that "leaked" and Escape sent us a new one and paid for the replacement. But then, in my own home, we had 19 Anderson windows that went bad that were replaced under warranty, so we won't complain about this one window.
