I dark tinted every window in the coach except for the windshield and I also did the 24" dark tinted visor on that! The visor is incredible! I will say that backing into my building during the daylight hours it is harder to see in the mirrors but, for every other reason....Dark tint is the best!
I have been in alot of states with the coach and have yet to have a problem with the cops. I think if you get pulled for another reason they may bring it up.
I also have the drop shade for the driver seat and it too is the bomb!
I highly suggest a professional tinter and a quality product like Lumar for the tint.

Tint

Don't do it. At night when you look out the passenger side to see if any thing is coming you will see a reflection of yourself like a mirror. It is ok in the day. I did all my windows and had to undo the front side windows.

I don't have near the reflection problems some are stating.
Forgive me for not knowing the exact spec, but the tint they used was stated to cause less mirroring than normal tint.

I also have turn signal and rear cameras. so I use my mirrors a lot less for changing lanes and reversing than some I guess. The turn signal mirrors are especially nice for checking the next lane over.

There are many tints available in all types of darkness and reflectivity's for sure. My suggestion is to speak to a Tinter that also installs residential films so that they know about and have access to films with great heat rejection and low reflectance. These films won't cause "fogging" of your windows either as they have a low absorbency which is the key. It's the absorbance of heat that wrecks dual pane glass.

We are installing MCD light and dark shades, picking up today and will know how the shades help.
We are considering the MCD shades. How do you like them? One of the things that map me like the MCD is the single piece for the shade as opposed to three panels for the windshield. With my luck, the sun would be right at that space between the shades.
