Storm windows as substitute

So as I continue to scour the forums and the internet for RV windows I had to ask this question. I came across RV windows and what stood out was using conventional house windows.

While I found the information needed to make sure the type of glass is adequate for the application (traveling vehicle, vibration, elevation changes, single/double pane, glass material, etc) but I've been searching every couple of days for salvage campers and/or inexpensive RV windows.

With not much luck I still searched. Eventually I found a posting in a nearby town for storm windows.

Research shows that those that do use storm windows are mounting them from the inside. However, these are meant to be mounted from the outside. Keep in mind these are usually just a DIY style storm window.

Prices are really inexpensive for new RV windows that it seems worth pursuing. I'm waiting to hear back from the seller to see what the glass material is made out of.

These look like a slider to me. What do you think?

Posting from seller in case link expires...

This is a really bad idea.

Unless the glass is tempered (splinterproof), they would be both illegal and dangerous.

They would work for a tiny house that didn't move, but for a vehicle, not so much.

I figured as much. I wanted to be that person that asks so in the future no one will.

Now if only I can take back what I said!

Hey ... the only dumb questions are the ones you don't ask

Awesome price for windows...I'd not use them in skoolie though...they look like vinyl...if a small cabin, yes
