The 9.6 acre, 50,585 SF facility is where MCD houses their design, manufacturing, assembly operations, office staff, and research and innovation group, as well as the material cutting area and metal and plastic fabrication shops. In addition, the MCD campus has an enjoyable 13-site RV staging/parking area where owners of RVs being retrofitted with MCD shades can stay while at the facility and live in their unit while the updating process is taking place. 50-Amp power is provided at each site. A meeting/patio area overlooking a small pond is provided for customers’ use as well as a 150-foot-long covered porch with seating to enjoy the Texas weather.

Can you tell me the cost? I'm getting a bid from Lazyday's for my coach this Thursday. I asked for two bid's, the cockpit separate and the whole coach Any help will be appreciated!
Please call Peggy direct at MCD for a bid or directions to an alternate dealer .... there are also other vendors for MCD depending on where you are located in the country if you require them to be installed. I believe that Lazy Days is the largest MCD distributor/installer in the country.
Thanks DriVer, I'll give them a call. If anyone else has a cost they paid I'd be interested as I'd prefer not to install the cockpit myself.
Unless you are very very good and a dealer I don't think that MCD will let just anyone install a power DUO unit for the windshield. The A pillar covers need to be removed and there's a lot of work involved not to mention how wide and heavy the unit must be. This piece has got to be done right the first time.
I did have an opportunity to use the power MCD windshield shade back in 2010 and it's awesome! One of our very good friends took delivery of a new motorhome with the same shade installed. At the time I took a short video with my camera and sent it to him.

We had the powered duo-shade installed for our coach's windshield. Ours was 1 piece & with the unwieldly-ness of that critter, the small space up & behind the front cabinets in which to work as well as snaking the wires through the A pillar & hooking up to a new switch on our dash, I'm glad we had a professional do it.
