Class A Window Curtain Upgrade

Our class A Fleetwood has a combination windshield power shade and two side window curtains. The OEM side window curtains pull from the front seat to the windshield and only provided privacy and not darkening capabilities. My children sleep in the main area of the RV and were awakened by the sun. We had explored power shades for the side windows, however,%2

Put up a set of drapes behind drivers and co pilots seats. They work great

Have you looked at MCD shades, back in November they had a 30% off and I replaced all the house pleated day/night myself. We like them so well decided to do the cockpit area.
The factory for MCD is located in the Dallas area and they did a great job.

Pick up a couple of the reflective windshield shades that you put in your cars windshield. We do this when we travel south and the sun is so hot.

OK, now the question. How late do they sleep?

Sorry a out the short post something happen to the original.


The kids only sleep until we want them to, however, we would prosper the little guy stay asleep longer!

My wife ended up sewing in sun block material and it changed the interior light conditions significantly!

We took ours off and had some white black out material sewn onto the them. Works well in keeping out the light and heat.

Cliff, Does the electric drive have any problems with the extra weight of the curtains now? I would think this adds quite a bit to the weight.

The side curtains are not motorized. The middle motorized shade is blackout material and didn't need anything.

OK, I see. Mine are motorized from the driver's side to just about the door. The short section from the passenger side that meets the motorized portion is not motorized. In my case I am a little concerned about that extra weight.
