Sun in the eyes

Hey everyone,
I have a class A and sometimes while driving the sun is horrible and those little sun visors never go where the sun is, does anyone have a suggestion for a shade that I can install for use while driving?

Mine came with a full roll down visor mounted above the windshield that is motorized. The only problem is that the motor is locked out when in gear, so if you need to lower it while moving, it must be shifted into neutral. The driver's and passenger side windows have the same, but not motorized. Behind these are a black day shade that is see-through from inside during the day.

A baseball cap works very well.

I agree that a baseball cap works. Then I moved on to sunglasses that I wear over my glasses. They do the whole job since they have sun shades.

I bought 2, remote controlled motorized Carefree awnings at a rally. They come in different lenghts. Installation was easy as I tapped into 12 volts at the overhead compartment. You should be able to buy over the internet. They work like a charm.

Who makes them? So I can find them on the net.

We did the motorized MCD shades, WOW what a difference for driving. Solar shade and a night shade for the ultimate sunshade.

Times three on the baseball cap. I hate caps and never wear one except when driving the motorhome. You can move the bill left or right to shade the sun. They work great. I keep two in the motorhome at all times.

Drive at night, duhhhh, turn around and drive the other way, let the wife drive and then it is her problem, or smear some axle grease under each eye.

I just cut 2 48x16 inch from this product Shop Phifer 48" x 84" Charcoal Super Solar at Lowes.com and attached with these Suction Cup w/Tack - 1-3/4" Dia. . I made side window screens from the remaining material, if not you could make 2 more sets. I hung them up 4 days ago and still sticking, will see what happens when we travel.

Here's a link to one place selling them: Carefree Power Smartvisor on Sale - PPL Motor Homes

They are relatively easy to install and solve the problem you are complaining about totally. We sized ours to pretty much span the entire windshield and installed them with about ~3 inches between them.
