Blocking low sun driving west?

Please share your solution to blocking the middle gap between the two sun visors on your class A when you are driving towards a low sun.

I checked your profile, but was unable to figure out what your driving. But since you are posting on the Class A Forum, I’ll assume it’s a class A.

If so, best solution might be to get rid of the separate shades (with the center split) and replace them with a new single shade system, like from MCD shades. We did this on our 2008 Camelot and it solved the problem.

Look for a campsite - you asked - itís the only solution that has worked every time.

A couple of clothes pins and a small hand towel, or dish towel. I know you may have to either stop or get the co-pilot to do it, but a simple solution.
Happy Glamping.

That MCD full-width visor sounds good.

There used to be those sun screens made out of black nylon with the spring steel frame. I bought 4 of those with the suction cups and when sundown came around, I'd just stick them to the front window in the appropriate place. Easy peezy.

We use a kitchen towel between the visors. When coming in from the side we use the side curtain set so it doesn't block the mirrors.

We have very good shades but in a pinch nothing beats a baseball cap. It's probably the only time I wear one.

The baseball cap is the first thing I tried, but even tilting it doesn't work the way I want it. Sun glare comes in on an angle. I think the towel idea can work.
