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.

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.
