Double-Pane RV Window 500x300mm
In Europe, almost all camper vans and motorhomes use Dometic Seitz-style Double-Pane RV Windows. These 500x300mm Arctic Tern RV windows have many advantages over typical North American camper van windows, including the following:
- The windows are double-glazed and include an integrated day/night shade, providing much better thermal performance for keeping warmth in and heat out as needed
- The integrated day/night shade is a much more versatile window covering than curtains, blinds or magnetic window coverings
- The entire pane of the window swings out on gas struts, and can be positioned at angles of 20, 40 and 60 degrees.
- The acrylic double-glazing makes for a window assembly that weighs 40% less than a typical single-pane glass RV window of a similar size.
Note: Shipping on these windows is $49 for the lower 48 US states, we can quote you on shipping elsewhere.

Note: It is important to understand that Arctic Tern double-pane RV windows have 3 sets of dimensions:
- the cutout dimensions for the window opening
- the frame dimensions of the window from the outside
- the blind & screen assembly dimensions on the inside.
The blind & screen assembly dimensions are the largest dimensions on these windows, so they're the most important measurements to consider (if you are using the blind/screen assembly, it is optional).
Before ordering, read the documents above and watch the "Considerations for Fitment" video. In brief:
- On the sides, you want a minimum of 3” flat surface beside the window from any support. On the top and bottom, you need a minimum of 1.5” flat surface from any support.
- The minimum wall thickness is 1” (actually 15/16”), so you cannot just clamp the window into place on the sheet metal. You will always need a wood or metal frame to make up the minimum thickness required. To choose the window thickness that's right for your build, you'll want to estimate the thickness of the whole "sandwich" of your finished wall, including the van body, insulation, soundproofing, fabric, panelling, etc. The thickness you select determines the depth of the window bracket and the length of the screws we send you with the window.
- You must also make room for the blind/screen assembly on the inside of the van body, as the blind/screen assembly is larger than the external dimension of the window.
- Making a template for your install is a great idea, though the windows do not come with a template.
