A quick search indicates the governing laws are state laws, and many states require the glass ('glazing') to conform to their definition of safety glass, generally,
-Windows and Doors including those to the right and left of the driver
-Egress windows (emergency exits)
That is not to say your state disallows regular windows in other places. It may allow them.
Related, tiny Homes are probably exempt much like modular or manufactured homes-not required because they move once, then stay put.
I would stick to RV windows-though I honestly couldn't tell you if some of those are not tempered glass. Tempered glass is marked, so it's pretty easy to identify.
The other part of the equation is the frame and its general strength and longevity. For operable windows, I don't think a vinyl frame will hold up over time.
And, it will look hokey.
