Motorhome Dash Covers...finally!

We purchased a dash cover from for our 2008 Holiday Rambler Navigator, and are very happy with the quality and design. We had been looking for a dash cover, but most of the folks out there that make them for RV's deliver a product that needs to be cut to accommodate vents, which we wanted to avoid. Blondie's had the exact template for our coach (which fits like a glove), is of high quality and was delivered promptly. I highly recommend this company if in the market for a RV dash cover! I posted 5 photos of our dash cover in my photo album:

They appear to be $219.00 and are made of carpet. Check out there web
site. They may have different materials but not sure if they all make for MH's.

Price & materials

Yes, that is correct, $219 is the price with free shipping. The cover is made from a low pile carpet material in several colors...the other fabric shown on the site is for cars and is not available for RVs. BTW, she has a 100% money back guarantee if your not happy with the covers. Like I said, I'm very happy with our new dash cover.

I am getting one no doubt about it. I always thought they looked funny in cars "but" I bought a old 64 caddie a couple years ago and one came with the car. Boy O Boy what a difference they make, never new what it was like to drive with out reflections of the dash in the windshield.
I have heard that they help protect the dash from cracking also, don't know if that's true or not but I will be buying one for the old PA. Thanks for the post.

It looks like the custom cover would be well worth the money.

I don't like the glare from the dash either. Why in the world would they use a light color like beige on dashboards? I have some dark material that I just lay on the dash when we are driving. It makes a huge difference.

Look great.
How shiny is it when driving and the sun shine on it? What color did you order? Is there more or less reflection in the windsheild when driving or taking pictures?

The dash cover definitely reduces glare, and there doesn't appear to be any glare from the new cover. As you can in the pictures from my initial post, we chose beige, as it matches our dash. Another added benefit: our cats absolutely love it! Makes their job of sleeping in the sun that much more luxurious!

Information Update

I want to issue a price correction: I paid $239 for my dash cover, which included shipping. I mistakenly said $219 in an earlier post.
Sorry about that.

Thanks for the update! I ordered a custom cover from them today; mine was $269, so pricing is dependent upon the layout of the dash. They said I should have it within a month.

I got to thinking about this. Sometimes I sits and thinks, sometime I just sits......

My MH is 12 years old now and the top of the dash looks good as new, even the forward part that the windshield curtains don't protect.

After thinking about that, I got to thinking about how many gallons of diesel that $219 + will buy me and how many more things I can see along the way.

The diesel won!

I just received a email this morning from Barb at Blondie's and she say's $219.95 includes shipping for one for our old rig.
Your right about the diesel fuel, I have a Gasser but will enjoy those miles glare free.
After using one in the old caddie, I have been looking for one for the MH.
I'm going for a Dark Brown one.
Thanks for finding the place for us.

I'm guessing you all had to call to get pricing for your individual units. We have the Itasca Sunstar 27N and am interested in this.
