economy sunshield

I have a large piece of flexible aluminum sheeting that we use to cover the inside of the windshield.

Got this because our older coach has a slanted front end and commercially available reflectors just are not large enough to cover the area.

It works fine except it sags in the middle when in place.

I want to get a segmented plastic or metal strap that would reach from side to side (inside) to support and hold the reflector up against the windshield.

Much like the tension straps that I've seen used on the underside of awnings . Who sells or makes them.

Much thanks............

I would suggest some flexible foldable fiberglass tent poles cut to the right length.

take to a metal shop and have them "crease" it to stiffen it up a bit.
if thats not enough then have them add a piece of hat channel or similar.

I think you're on the right trail but just haven't gone far enough along it.

We're also in the market for some sort of inside sun shield for our '88 Winnebago class A - needs to be 8 feet wide x 3 feet high, and something foldable or roll-able for easy use and storage - sure not much out there for proper fit and under $50 or so, but seem to be a few more elaborate setups closer to $100...
