I used the aluminized bubble-wrap insulation and made covers for the windshields and the two small side windows. Yes, the windshields do get hot. Reminder - DO NOT wash the MH or spray any water on the windshields when they are hot.

The rest of the windows I tinted.

I also made 14x14 inserts for the roof vents, AND, painted the exterior of the bathroom skylight white.

The big test came this summer with a one week trip to Phoenix and an outside air temperature of 115 Degrees.

We have one 13.5 BTU AC unit, and it was able to keep the inside of the Mirada a nice comfy 76 degrees.

It won't do MACH 2, but I can get a sandwich and take a pee.
