Question Visor extensions??

I have a new to me "A" MH with 2 sun visors for the 8 ft wide window; one for the driver and one for the DW. The up and down adjustments are OK but you cannot move the visors to either side. This leaves about a ft at either end and a 2 ft section in the middle with no protection from the sun. Driving into the sun is murder. If you had this problem, how did you solve it? My current interim solution of carboard taped to the window has got to go.

I bought interior sunshades with suction cups to be installed when we are parked. You can see though the sunshades from inside but not from outside in the daylight. At night you can see inside. Now for what I did for sunshade when driving. These sunshades I bought were to long & wide for the windshield. We had to cut them, so we added sunction cups to the pieces we cut off & use them when driving. I also use them at the tops of the side windows to keep the sun at bay there also.
Do a search for sunshades on the forum, there are several to choose from.

Ours have a set screw that allows the shade to be moved sideways as well as an articulated arm. We can pretty much use them anywhere on the windshield and most of the driver/passenger side windows.

This wasn't cheap, but it worked perfectly.

Sun visor.

Hi woodytrwo,
I purchased two items from MCD (MCD Innovations). One is a fixed shade that fastens just above the windshield nd comes down about 8". Next were two power shades. One for the driver and one for the passenger. Like previously posted, one can see through the shades. They do very well in dulling the sun. Pictures are at:
MCD Power Visors Lowered For Privacy - iRV2.com RV Photo Gallery

You can see the permenant shade across the top. The power shades are lowered in this picture. There are more pictures right next to this one.

My "Rosen" visors adjust side-to-side and 40/11 other ways, as well. Came with the MH. Rook

We had the MCD motorized day and night shades installed on the windshield and manual ones on the side windows. They work great for sun shields while traveling and as privacy shades while stopped.
We also have them on all the other windows in the coach.

I forgot to mention that the "Rosen" visors are EXPENSIVE!! $300-$400 a pair. They are actually designed for use in an Airplanes. Rook

Hi Diane. Is this solar film the cling type, or is it a permanent install? Thanks.

I bought a roll of 48" sunshade and cut two pieces 35" long put on the suction cups and they cover the entire windshield, also made one for the passenger and driver side windows. Inexpensive and so far, so good.

I allways have the top 12 to 18 inches tinted with "limo" tinting. Recently I installed the MCD windshield shade and love it.

Question What is this solar stuff?

Please add some info on the solar stuff. I assume that you can see thru this but is it dark enough to cut down on the sun's rays? If so, how much? How do you install? Can joe average install or should you get this professionally installed. Where do you buy it?
Thanks.
