Replacing our original RV windows with Thin Shade RV windows
Why did we replace our windows?
The windows in the doors that came with our RV were frosted. This meant that you couldn’t see out of them, and they also let in a lot of heat.
The new Thin Shade windows are tinted glass so you can see out, but you can’t see in from the outside.
They also have a shade that pulls down to cover the glass and block out the light when needed.
Where did we get ours?
You can order a Thin Shade window directly from Amazon.
Was it difficult to replace them?
I can’t speak from personal experience since I just watched my hubby install them, but he said it wasn’t very difficult and it didn’t take him very long.

How long did it take to replace them?
Each window took about 20 minutes from start to finish.
Did it require any special tools?
Yes, it actually did. To remove the original windows, we had to order these special window keys. It was impossible to remove our original windows without them.
Each RV may be different though, so be sure to check and see if you will need any special tools or if you’re good to go already.
Do we like the new Thin Shade windows?
YES! We really love being able to see outside without opening the door. It is also nice to have the ability to pull down the shades in the windows which drastically reduces the amount of natural light that comes in.
