I had three windows done on my motorhome by a local tint shop in Southern California. They came to me. The three windows (two bedroom and one living room) were approximately 24" x 40". The tint used was LLumar ATC 15%. Cost was $375. If I had to do it again, I would go darker.

Good luck.

I just had mine done last month. In Virginia I got a medical exemption for windshield tint. All was Llumar films, windshield was a 20 something. It allows legal 70+% transmission, up to 99%blocking UV rays, and 43% reduction in heat. Very light blue tint. 3 Installers backed up 2 pickups and mounted on outside to cut, then carried inside and installed. $250 Two &1/2 hours. Then 2 guys did side windows, a double slider on drivers side, and a double slider on passenger side with 50% tint took about 1 hour and was $60 each or $120 for both. I did have to run generator and air conditioner for them about 3 1/2 hours.

Check with some professional Tinting people. They need to eat also.

Don't know if you guys are aware, but all windshields block 100% of UV. Side windows in rv, no, but windshields yes. In cars, all windows block UV.

Luckily, my rv came with all side windows from factory with limo tint. Works wonderful.

I got a quote for $800.00 not including the windshield. Seems like you guys got way better pricing.

I had the side windows only done just a couple of months ago. I've got a 1995 Holiday Rambler Endeavor LE with 3-pane windows similar to the photo in 98FPA's post. I had 20% put on the upper pane, and 35% put on the lower panes (35% is as dark as you are allowed to use on the "driver's" windows here in Missouri - don't know a thing about other states).


Anyway, it ended up being 6 window panes, and the final cost was $150 + tax. We took the MH to Colorado the first week of July, after the window tint was done. DW commented on how much cooler it was on her side, and I noticed a big difference, too. I haven't noticed much in the way of a problem with reflections.

Just got home from getting the driver & passenger side windows and front windshield tinted. Used the special tinting for the dual pane side windows.

$300 for the shop plus $30 tip for each of the 2 guys and gal that did the work.

Just be aware that, while rarely enforced, window tint laws are NOT covered by reciprocity.

Just like speed laws, each State has the right to pass its own laws.

A friend of mine found out the hard way in PA.

I tinted both my other coach's but haven't done the DS yet. I had the Safari done ten years ago and it was about $300. That included a non tinted film for the driver/passenger and windshield that was applied on the inside. I believe it was called "V-Cool" and it cut down on heat & UV etc. It may have had a slight tint but it was barely noticeable. Anyway it worked great. The rest of the coach was a commercial mirrored film on the exterior that also worked great. I wasn't in a huge hurry to do this coach as it seems to have much better cooling. But part of the motivation for me is I have had a few bouts with skin cancer so I try to be diligent in keeping the sun off of me. I will probably still have the cockpit only done when I get around to it. I still have the passenger windows done in the cars to match the OE tint on all the other windows. Most recently had my Edge front windows done and it was $80.

The first two are before. I think the factory windshield had some uv protection.

Now, when will the inevitable rock chip happen? I'm heading south next week to Arkansas...
