Homemade Sun Shade

Homemade sun shades for our Winnebago Vista LX 35B

The first day in Irving was a hot summer day in Florida. When we got to him, the dealership only had the back A/C on and the front shades were open to the sun all day. Needless to say, it was very hot in there. It took quite a long time to cool down, but once the sun went down, we were OK.

As Amber usually does, she set out to find a solution. She first started looking for pre-made sun shades, but none of them matched the one we have for our car, a silver, reflective sheet that cover the whole windshield. Her next search was Lowe’s web site to find insulation and that’s where she found pretty much the same material our car shade is made out of. She went to measuring and made her cuts, strengthening the edges with duct tape. She got command velcro, you know, the one that doesn’t damage what it’s stuck to. We hung the panels using the velcro and attached each panel together with the same. In the above picture, you can see that it looks fantastic!

GREAT JOB!!
