Specifically, Lippert is focused on becoming an industry leader in glass window innovations while also growing its already substantial offerings in the segment, as evidenced by its acqui- sition of Hehr International's glass windows business earlier this year. More Than a Pretty Face There's no question that glass windows hold a huge segment of the RV market. The reasons for that, LCI officials say, are that glass is both durable and good-looking. "A lot of it is aesthetics," says Troy Whetton, Lippert director of sales, RV windows. "What the windows do is break up the sidewall, and of course, they're also for ventilation and letting in light. The natural light that comes into your coach or RV is really an added feature." That's a key reason that the company has been working hard in recent years to develop a front windshield for towable RVs, according to Whetton.
