Solar exterior sun shades for windshield

Wanting to get some black sun shades for the motorhome this year I know that there are some guys that come thru some parks that we've been at but just didn't get it done. We are traveling to Breckenridge Colorado the third week of July and then to Buena Vista Colorado the fourth, and the second week of October cocoa beach Florida for five day and back to Gatlinburg for four days before heading home to Missouri. Any recommendations would be appreciated thanks Randy

We had a firm come through one of the campgrounds and did the windshield, drivers, passenger window and awning. One of the best things we ever purchased for the coach. Ours has buttons. I have seen the system with magnets which looks a bit easier to install. I think that firm is called magna shade.

Good luck!

Another vote for MagneShade. Initial install is easy and putting them up and taking them down is super easy. Call them and tell what make, model, and year of your coach and they will make it and send it to you where every you might be.
They also make the best tire covers.

Just installed the Magne Shade on the front of our MH and it is one of the best things we've done. Easy to install the magnets on the inside and super easy to put up and take down. Never have to climb a ladder to put up or take down. Made a huge difference in the inside temp. Well worth the cost. You won't be disappointed. We also installed their Flip Shades on the driver and passenger windows. And they are a great company to deal with.

I'm also greatly pleased with our Magneshade ... it was the only good option I could find that didn't require putting extra holes in the coach. Roger and his folks know what they're doing and take care of customers ...

Our coach had the black shades installed when we got it. They have snaps, but they are really worth the effort to put up. The coach is cooler and the drop in the glare is really nice.


We highly recommend them. The MagneShade units seem really nice.

Love our MagnaShades. Can still see out, but really cuts down the light. Easy Peasie to put on and take off.

One thing to remember though. At night, when it is dark out, and you have the lights on, you cannot see out, and others can see in, kind of.

And be at least fifteen degrees cooler inside. What's your point?

I have the latest Magne Shade product...tire covers with open centers so the center of the wheel can be seen. Great products and great customer service.
