MCD Shades Saved Us ....

September 30, 2011


McKinney, TX - “If it wasn’t for our windshield shade being half way down, we would have been covered in glass. Our MCD shades saved us. ” This from Ralph and Gisela Jones as they pulled into the MCD factory in McKinney, TX last week.

As the Jones’ were traveling east across OK 70, a large rock flew into the upper portion of their windshield and broke through the glass. Sharp shards flew everywhere inside the coach, spraying the front dash and into the cockpit area of their 2008 Holiday Rambler Ambassador. Because they were using their full side-to-side day shade as a sun visor, the glass hit the shade and did not fly into their faces. “We feel very fortunate that we had MCD shades because they saved us from having all of that glass pummel our heads and shoulders,” said Ralph.

The Jones’ were coming back to the factory to have their original shades converted to the Company’s Generation IV system. “The shades were my 70th birthday present,” noted Gisela. “I got jewelry for my 50th and 60th birthdays. Then we started full timing in our RV and I wanted the cockpit shades.” The couple installed MCD shades in the rest of their coach in 2009.

The Jones’ have been full time Rvers since the fall of 2007 and love the lifestyle and their coach. “Holiday Rambler has a great reputation and my wife really liked this layout,” said Ralph. They have traveled in all but four U.S. states and their fondest memories are of their trip to Alaska. “We did everything there - glacier tours by boat and helicopter and deep sea fishing. We even visited Sarah Palin’s hometown. It was really nice.” They have also enjoyed the Maritimes and many of the provinces in Canada.

In the winter months the couple has fun working at Disney World. “We love working in the food court in the French Quarter. The people who come in are always nice and are having fun on their vacations. It doesn’t get much better than that. But the best part of full time RVing is that we do not miss any birthdays or graduations of our grandchildren. We have seen them more now that ever before,” said Gisela.

While the Jones’ were at MCD they were able to locate a local windshield repair place to replace their windshield. “MCD has treated us great!” said Gisela. “We love our shades. They have been a great addition to our coach and to our lifestyle.”

Thank you MCD Shades!
