Dash blindness suggestions

I'm not sure it makes a difference but our 2015 Itasca Sunstar has a very light/white(ish) dash and after a long day it can be like having snow blindness. Know any good makers of dash covers or other easy to do suggestions. I was considering a dark sheet but fear it might slither off as we go down the road. Thanks for any ideas.

3M vinyl?
They make a real nice carbon fiber look in a dark grey and they also have other textured vinyl. It can also be easily removed with heat and patience. It's UV rated for exterior automotive applications so it should last a while.

Here's the one we added to our Tiffin. I am well pleased with the quality and excellent fit. As a bonus, one of our dogs loves the soft feel versus the vinyl dash. Her spot when we are parked is on the dash standing guard.

Wade RV at Lazy Days in Florida made our custom dash cover. Protects the dash from the wild cat claws and wasn't real expensive.

Dash Covers by Josie. Three coaches, three Josie dash covers. Recommended for fit and quality.

Thanks, it appears to be the type I'm looking for and as a bonus, the dog is a real cutie.

On the same line.... when folks purchase a motorhome front window screen, many choose a white one because they think they'll be able to see out of it better. Not so. A darker one is much more clear and it also cuts down on glare. Both colors keep out the heat.
