Need front windshield cover solution

Hi,

I need a solution like Magna Shade but something that I can get in a reasonable amount of time. Unfortunately I am nowhere for more than 2 weeks much less 5-6 weeks to receive a custom order.

My 'office' is the passenger seat. I am down in AZ and 96 degrees today and can't work up there. Both AC's running, but unfortunately the blowers stop behind the driver and passenger seat, and don't move air up there. Tried a fan but that just blows the hot air already up there making me suffocate.

I can put the shade down but I want to see out. Magna shade would be great since I can see out.

I know a lot of complaining, but hoping somebody has an idea of something else I can use for this summer?

I could have offered a number of solutions until you said, "I want to see out." How about a cheap tarp rigged as a shade over the windshield? A couple of plastic plumbing sections for poles and some rope and tent pegs should build a shade that would work pretty well. You could also park facing North, that's the most common suggestion with the huge windshield of an RV with the sun blasting in.

If you get to the point of wanting to work and NOT see out, get the below item, measure window width, and cut. Fits perfectly in an RV window.

A roll of reflectix is a great way to cut the heat from the sun I cut to fit with scissors two for the front and two for the sides while at a campgrounds and again in storage really helps alot

Since you are in Arizona, check out SunProMfg.com in AZ. They will make a complete set for the front windshield and the side windows and might be able to do it at their factory. I have owned two sets of their shades and they are very good quality.

Looking for a solution that goes on the outside. Big believer that if you can step it from penetrating the glass, it is going to work better.

I agree, but it is 5-6 weeks from order to shipping, and I move pretty much every 2 weeks.

Won't they contact you when ready to ship and then give them your next stop?
I had repair parts shipped to our next stop.and it worked fine.
Or find a boat canvas shop and see if they will make you up one while you are local.

I ordered a set from shadepro, they had them to me in a week. Very pleased with them so far.

Depending on where you are in Arizona these folks might help you. Only downside it is not with magnets. https://www.shadepro.net

We too love our MagneShades.

I'd bet if you call Magna Shade and tell them your situation, they would contact you for shipping info once it's ready to ship.
