Without our outside sunscreen we would not be able to camp in the hotter months of Texas, but we were able to be comfortable all summer long (weekends) with it.

Also a necessity--a quiet tower fan to move the air around. AC thermostats are more effective if there is air current.
I need to do a color change on mine. Did you happen to change your color? I am shopping for a spray dye now and will be calling the material supplier and see if they know of one that works. The manufacture did not.

We also use a "wisper quite fan" and it does make a difference. Nice that the new Anthem will have a ceiling fan to help move the air.

I have a 8' MCD, (light blocking only), power shade, which completely blocks all light when camping, doubles as an adjustable visor when driving and is one of the best, most useful, mods I have made.
Mine was a take out from an Allegro coach who's owner put in a MCD night and solar shade set, (I paid $80 at a Tiffin/Allegro RV dealer).

I can try another but you can see one magnet if you look in the bottom left in the picture looking out but as you can see you don't really notice them on the Tiffin anyway. All the ones up top are completely hidden.

No, sorry, I know nothing of how to change the color. Sorry!

That picture from the inside was taken without the shade on place. I was just trying to show the magnets.
I took the picture of the outside with the shade in place before we hit the road and just have not put it back up.
Would you like a picture with it in place from the inside?

windshield shade

on our past "A" (a Damon Tuscany) we had a Magnashade. it may work to reduce sun effects but the negatives I have are it comes loose too easily.
on several occasions it was on the ground after a wind event.
the magnets came loose in the Washington park last year and beat the windshield to death and broke it.
i'm now certain there are other cheaper products to choose from than this one. not a fan any more after my experience

Here is roughly the same shot with the shade in place. We have been using ours on a regular basis since we hit the road a year ago and we did have in blow loose one time while 60 mph winds hit us from the side for a good part of a afternoon but that was the only time.
Nothing is perfect.

We actually PREFER looking through the window with the shade in place. You can see clearly out, but you get privacy during the day--people cannot see in. The table is turned at night though--with inside lights on people can see you but you can't see them. Good to know when you are changing clothes!! ha!!

Sorry about the first picture not being titled. That is the MCD shade up. Because of the plants I can't bring the shade all the way down.

And here is the night shade. I still am having trouble posting pictures. I hope they are showing. And multiple pictures are a real mystery to me.

I have snaps.
I get out my ladder. (Only takes a moment after I made a ladder rack - see the modifications thread)
Install my snap-ons (about 5 minutes tops)
Put away my ladder (Only takes a moment)

All in under 10 minutes

@$850.00 for the whole front end at Wade RV (on the Lazy Days campus in Tampa)

I'm happy.
