Cockpit curtains

In our 09 Tour we have curtains that wrap around the cockpit...lets a lot of light in and are not very heat/cold friendly...I don't want to spend a gazillion dollars on MCD shades so looking for what others have done...

I would find a custom curtain maker & have a heat/cold/light blocking curtain made. Or, if your existing curtain is fabric, have it lined with a thermal curtain material. I did that myself, in our 1st motor home. it was far superior to what we have now.
We recently replaced the original type, pleated, windshield shade in our Ventana. It looks nice, but does nothing to block heat. We have a Magna Shade that helps with that, but we only put that up when we are parked for a while. I'm not recommending this.

That's what we did. They were backed with blackout material.

Cockpit curtains

I had these made a few months back from a local guy I have used in the past when I was a boat owner. I do need a small 4' ladder to install them.

The wife went to Dollar Store or Walmart and bought regular window curtains. Sideways, they fit perfect and the length became width were exactly right. Two 84 inch and one 54 inch replaced the originals. We put in 50 grommets and bought the rolling hangers. White material faces outside and dark brown faces inward. We use sun shade also. Nice and cool in summer st 100!
