Roll Down Sun Shades

Where do you find the sun shades that roll down? Not the black outs but the ones to cut the glare while driving. I've done several online searches but find nothing, most likely because I don't know what to call them.

Thanks, Robert

Check out AutoMotion Shades. They came from factory on our Tiffin 36 LA. Powered front Sun shades and Blackout shades in one unit. The rest of the windows are manual sunshade and blackouts.

I'll check them out. Thanks for the information. I was really scratching my head on this.

Are you looking for front or side windows?
If its for your side windows, I used a Bali that I got from Home Depot, Your able to get them in any sizes, in like 1/2" increments, they have 5 or 10%, that means they block 90 to 95%

Thanks for the replies. These all look like shades to use when parked, though. We have black outs already. We still need to find something to cut the glare while driving, which is the main purpose of this thread. We'll eventually get a Magne Shade for use in RV parks. Maybe after the holidays.

We'll definitely take a look at those Bali shades at Home Depot as all the shades in the coach could use replacing eventually. That's a good idea.

The AutoMotion shades walkerkb2 posted about do that. Evidently they're considered roll-down see-through visors.

I'm familiar with the auto motion and mcd 'solar' shades. I don't think you will find that they are suitable or approved for driving while they are down all the way. Ours will only come down about a foot with the engine running.
It does cut down on the glare with them roll down one foot. but the visibility is not good enough to drive while looking through them. It would probably be illegal also.

That's what I would expect. You wouldn't drive with your sun visor all the way down either.

We have three of these for the windshield and two of these for the sides. They work well, we overlapped the front ones to keep the sun from peeking through between them. I would have used two larger ones for the front, but the mounting space dictated three.

We drive with all these down varying amounts, depending on where the Sun is.

These are blackout shades, but Carefree also carries the translucent ones for the side windows here. We originally bought the translucent ones for the side windows but they let too much sun through, we changed them out for the blackout ones.
