Auto type front window shades

I am looking for auto type sun shades for my front window. These shades will be used when Motor-home is stored in my driveway.

Has anyone found a shade that will work?

I found some large rectangular mylar shades that fold into a reasonable storage size at Walmart in the auto section. They have two sizes large and small. The large ones fit exactly between my dash and the rod that hold the curtains. Four of them overlap to completely cover the front and driver side window. They make a big difference in internal temperature when parked. When I am on the road they coil into packages and all 4 of them fit easily into the map pocket on the back of the drivers seat.

Hope this helps.

Dennis, place the shade on the outside, the windshield glass will not get heated by the sun transmitting that heat in to the coach.

DrDave, Thanks for the response. We do have black mesh covers that attache to the outside. This cover will not stop the UV, which is causing the dash to crack.

So, that is why I was looking for inside block out sun shades.

I bought a roll of the following from Amazon and cut it to fit the windshield and both side windows. I even use it as window insulation when very cold or hot outside. Works great and when not in use I roll it up and put it in the closet.

Dennis, I had our mesh type shades made when we were in Las Vegas many years ago. Why couldn't you have the same shade made with a solid material? That would block the uv and keep the glass from transmitting the heat through the glass. IIRC ours were made by RV Shade Guy, but I know there are a bunch of these guys around, they show up at the RV shows all the time.

Dash covers by Josie. Hides current cracks and helps from getting worse.
