Windshield Cover

I have a 2008 Damon Daybreak 3276 bunkhouse. I purchased it used. It has all the snaps on the outside of the windshield and 2 front side windows. Whereís the best place to buy a cover that will fit on these snaps?

Glad to have you here in the forum with us. You're gonna like it here.

If you know who the original manufacturer was you can get it from them. If you don't know then it will be a roll of the dice I'm sure here is no standard for the snaps.

Happy Trails!!!

You may have to go to an upholstery shop and have one fitted to your snaps

We go to the Rio Grande Valley every winter. There are lots and lots of small operations making windshield covers. Iíve watched many being measured and installed. They drill the holes AFTER the cover is made. So, if that is the case, the snap locations will vary.
One thing I did observe that might help; they have a roll of light weight gauze paper. They carefully tape it in place, and make a very detailed pattern. That might work for you.

Thanks for all the replies! Starting to think I am going to try to make them myself. Get some kind of insulated fabric and install the snaps myself by lining them up.

Our rv just canít stay cool up front and the heat from the windshield is the main spot I want to attack first. We already have reflectix on the inside of the windshield. This has helped but itís almost unbearable sometimes being in the south heat.

Yea, I think your better off with the cover outside, keeping the heat from entering the windshield

We have a commercial sewing machine so we made our's our self. They attach on outside of windshield with very strong magnets so no ladder required. super easy to install. The material is from 'sailrite' Designed for the marine industry so extremely durable in the sun.

I added insulation in the area above the windshield and that helped a lot with the heat. Had to remove the tv to gain access to the uninsulated space.

Custom Winshield Cover

Contact Sunpro Mfg by phone at 800 789-5588 or view their web site at sunpromfg.net

I have begun the ordering process with them, as I have the same situation with existing snaps and an original design that requires a custom cover. I want to retain the use of snaps and the original design.

I spoke with them by phone and found them to be very helpful and willing to accommodate my needs. I think you will get the answers to your questions from them by phone, as was my experience.
