Windshield Shades.

Has anyone installed pull down windshield and side window shades to help with the sun blinding you? Our 2014 Vista 35B only has the visor that swings down for driver and co pilot. Our previous 98 Damn Intruder had high end visors that extended, adjusted up and down, swing, etc.

Our current visors are attached at both ends of the visor. Sun blinding is a real problem.

Have the same issue with our MH. Have found only 2 suppliers that will meet our needs just can't seem to pull the trigger, looking for something less $$$$$. Will watch this thread to see if someone else can provide a less expensive alternative.
The suppliers that we found:
Automotionshade - Our Customers
MCD Innovations

2 of us + 1 rescue, Sadie (not sure who rescued who)

Try RV quick shades http://http://www.rvquickshades.com/
We bought the suction cup visor screen. We leave it up all the time. Works great except for late in the day when sun a low angle. Since we are done driving before 4/5 PM sun is rarely a problem. We bought two 54x16 for around $21 each - with a little trimming they cover the full width of our big windshield. Bought them almost four years ago and now on the second coach. Look in Accessories section.

I just recently purchased a MagneShade for the windshield. It is an outside windshield shade that is held on by magnets. Expensive (about $500) but good quality and very easy to install once you arrive at your campsite.

Ours came with the MCD Auto shades and i wouldn't be without them. The front ones ar electric and can be adjusted while you drive as the sun hits your windshield. The side ones are pull down, and can be adjusted manually while you drive. The shade is really good for cutting down the glare and the solid shades block out light completely. They are also easier to keep clean than most shades.

Consider an electric shade for the windshield.

I'm going to measure today, I got new drapes a year or so ago and I hate them ever time I pull the curtain to open some of the hooks fall off. Theses' look like what I have wanted and at a good price.
