The previous owner of our coach replaced the cloth drapes in the windshield area with accordion pleat shades. They are difficult to use and, if deployed for a period of time, the pleats lose their memory. We are not happy with them and are wondering what others are using for interior privacy screens in the windshield area.

You can restore the pleats by spraying them with spray starch and then folding them until the starch sets.

We use the solar screen on the outside of the windshield and then a 18" high curtain at the bottom of the windshield on the inside. On the drivers side we have the curtain that could be pulled all the way across the inside of the windshield and at times may use it for this purpose.

We use solar screens on the outside, when camping, which gives you privacy during the day time. When it gets dark we use a piece of the 4'high, foil covered, bubble wrap, that we cut to the length of the windshield and use on the inside. This also adds additional insulation from cold or heat from coming through the w/s area.
We have been using the same piece for 3 1/2 years. The curtains are only pulled far enough open to cover the side windows and door.
I originally bought the bubble wrap for use while the MH was stored next to our house. I wanted to keep the Florida sun out and thought the curtains would deteriorate from the constant sun.
