The Panoramic Windows (clear only) were introduced in 1971 as a feature on the new 1972 Argosy coaches. Initially, they were only used on the front of the coach. When the rear bedroom floorplans were added around 1975, the Panoramic Windows were added to the rear of the coach to denote the presence of the rear bedroom.
The Panoramic Windows (Solar Gray Tinted) made the transition to Airstreams in the early 1980s. Unlike the Argosy coaches, they weren't automatically added to the rear bedroom coaches and were most often found on the premium models in the line-up.
Good luck with your investigation!
