Windshield heat reflectors

In our last mh we had a heat reflector for the inside of the windshield that had a reflective aluminum coating on it.Had one for the drivers side and another for the passenger side. It had a wire around the perimeter and you were able to twist it to a smaller size for storage. I have seen small reflectors like this for cars but not the bigger ones for a mh.
Anyone know where I might find these? I forgot and left them in the mh when we sold it.

Windsheild heat reflectors

We got a 10' by 4' piece of material from camping world advertised as window heat shield about $15. We cut about 4" off the bottom which allow it to stay up close to the windshield and allow us to close the pleated shades. The material is like coarse reflective bubble wrap. My MH faces south in our open shed. It really cuts the heat down.

Lowes carries the "bubble wrap" insulation and is listed as
Reflectix 25-ft x 48-in Reflective Insulation

Found in the insulation area $43.25. Cut pieces to cover the windshield and side windows. I used suction cups with the metal clips to hold in place at the top.
If in extreme temperature area double up the insulation and it doubles the "R" value
I store under the bed

I keep some of that Reflectix on board and use it mainly for the side windows. What I was looking for was a panel that fits in side the windshield but folds up easily. Searched on ebay and found it a little while ago. Would post a pic of it but somewhat challenged when it comes to that.
Appreciate the replys.

one thing to keep in mind

i was told this and it seem right as i have had it happen to me

this works good on windshields with the rubber that holds them in
on windshields that use the glue to hold them in over time can hurt the glue from getting to hot and the glass start to become unglued

not sure how good this info is but i was told it and seen it on some posts befor and my passenger side glass did this to me

We have the reflectix insulation from lowes. Not only does it help with summer heat. We spent most of the winter this year in our coach and it really made a difference keeping the heat in the coach when it was -6 degrees out.

If you want to keep the maximum amount of heat OUT, you need a UV shield that is OUTside the window. There are lot's of options out there just google RV heat shield or something similar.

It has been mentioned not to use Reflectix on the the inside of a double pane window. The extreme heat directed at the double pane can cause the window seal to fail.
