Looking for a source of the solar reflecting woven material used inside RVs to reflect heat and still allow visability from the inside out. Would like to cut and assemble my own shades, to conform to various sized windows.

Home Depot in the window screen department. I think it is called solar screen. I put it on all the windows of our old house that the sun hit. It replaces the normal insect screen material.

What I really want is the material that the vendors sell at the RV shows. It is a heavier material, and has more heat reflective properties than the Home Depot material, which I am familiar with. I may have to bite the bullet and go to the vendors, but they must get the material from some source. Thanks, I'll keep looking.

Bill, If you look in the insulation section at Lowe's or Home Depot you should see this material. It is used for insulating Heating & Air Ducts. Comes in different size rolls.

Bill, we made our own side screens (roll down) by replacing regular spring-loaded roll shades vinyl with a 50% sunlight mask (black woven fabric) found at Home Depot.

We bought material called Sun Screen Fabric, 120 sq. feet for $30.00 today at Home Depot. Enough to do all windows except windshield, which we had already done. This material, in black, looks similar to the product we bought for the windshield at a RV show. We are considering different mounting applications, and will post our results. Thanks to all.

On the road testing the Sun Screen Fabric, etc. Works well, we leave it up in the RV on windows not used while driving. Well worth the price, and more.
