Anything a trailer mfg can do to decouple the materials in a trailer will make for a quieter trailer. Dual or triple pane windows, extruded foam insulation, and non-resonant hard surfaces are all an improvement.
When I restored my Starcraft, I used Low-E sliders for windows. I also installed a foam product between the studs and the interior paneling.It is dead-quiet inside.

4 seasons, depends on where those 4 seasons are spent. I live in southern Arizona and we camp year around.

Lance, because they have 2 layers of Azdel in the walls (which is very sound deadening,) plus Lance offers dual pane windows all around.

We had a Sunline without double pane windows and you could hear a lot of the outside noise. Then we got an Arctic Fox. It was SO quiet inside. We now have a Lance and I REALLY miss our Arctic Fox. It was MUCH quieter inside.

The term 4 season is meaningless. There is no industry standard so it might not be anything more than a decal and a bunch of hype. Choose carefully and make sure it has what you want. Are there quieter RVs? Yes. We have dual pane windows and heavier insulation and it is much quieter than our previous rig.

I tend to agree with this post. 4 season can mean one thing to one manufacturer and something else to another manufacturer. One thing to one buyer and something else to another buyer. To me...4 season means take it off the road with no hook ups and everything is there, installed from the factory to survive comfortably in the wilderness at 20 degrees or 100 degrees. No one makes this coach yet, at least not in smaller trailers.
